Hypertension (Definition)

A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

100% healthy, no hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, or diabetes, ideal weight, very active, 59 y.o. woman, 2 days later, heart attack, related?

There are known: risk factors for coronary artery disease and you have named them but there is also genetics. In addition you haven't mentioned smoking or emotional distress. Takasubu can cause heart attack in a distressed woman and perhaps that is the root of the event. Smoking can undo all the good for the things you mentioned. ...Read more

Chances for a 60 yr m with single diabetic kidney ( albumin creatinine ratio 139) with tight glucose and BP control ending in renal failure?Roughly?

Chances for a 60 yr m  with single diabetic kidney ( albumin creatinine ratio 139) with tight glucose and BP control ending in renal failure?Roughly?

Chances: Your elevated albumin/creatinine ratio indicates that you have proteinuria. You should ask you physician to send you to a nephrologist for a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and proteinuria (p). Patients who have higher levels of p, have a higher incidence of renal, cardiac and neurological complications than those with lower p. Drugs that lower BP and p are ace-i's and arb's. Ask your md. ...Read more

Or also pressure hydrocephalus, diabetic, obese age 65 life expectancy.  Normal pressure?

What kind: I am unfamiliar with also pressure hydrocephalus- did you spell the type correctly? For most causes of hydrocephalus, the type determines the treatment and forecast. The diabetes-how long, level of control, other vascular issues, and meds also figure in to the forecast you are seeking. Too complicated for this format. ...Read more

Is it normal for 35 y/o non-alcoholic female w/o family history of PKD to develop multiple painful bilateral renal cysts, high urine output & high bp?

Is it normal for 35 y/o non-alcoholic female w/o family history of PKD to develop multiple painful bilateral renal cysts, high urine output & high bp?

Isolated PKD: PKD is autosomal dominant. One PKD allele is all that is needed to express PKD. Expression is over 90%. What you report is not normal, nor usual. Over 90% of expressed, affected persons have an affected parent. Yet, old data indicate that ~10% of affected persons do not have a parent with expressed PKD. Yet new data reveal that PKD gene mutations do exist in a parent without expression. ...Read more

Can woman who donates a kidney live normal life? What care must she take?risk in pregnancy? Is there lowered life expectancy? risk of kidney failure?

Can woman who donates a kidney live normal life? What care must she take?risk in pregnancy? Is there lowered life expectancy? risk of kidney failure?

Depends: Most of us need one well-functioning kidney to live normally. However, one needs to think seriously before deciding to become a living donor. After all, it is a major surgery (mortality rate 2-3 in 10,000) and it requires general anesthesia. Recent studies have shown that former donors do have slightly higher chance of pregnancy-related complications (e.g. pre-eclampsia). ...Read more

Is polycystic kidney disease an issue that negatively affects erectile function for a male  age 37yrs?My BP is 12.7/8 with olmesartan10mg&lercadip20mg

Probably not..., but: Autosomal dominant PKD itself has no direct bearing with ed, but drugs for high blood pressure have. Of course, long-term hypertension may increase the chance of developing blocking arteries leading to ed, but it's very unlikely for someone at age 37. For detail and specific, check with expert timely. Best... ...Read more
