Hypertension Probably Contributes To Atherosclerosis By
Narrows pipe: Just as narrowing your garden hose can give you a thinner stronger stream; however the real concern is a plaque ain't smooth. Damage a platelet, get a clot, stop the all important flow of blood. Lack of oxygen causes death to cells fed by this area. Picture this in the vessels that feed your heart or your brain. ...Read more
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
Can LDL be too low for a patient with a history of atherosclerosis, TIA, hypertension and currently on NOAC? Current LDL at 50 under 20mg simvastatin
LDL-P or LDL-C? Big: Difference. Outcomes always match LDL-P (http://goo. Gl/zwrkCs); Not LDL-C [a guess of how much cholesterol (in mg) is carried by all LDL particles in a dL of blood plasma] data, See: http://goo. Gl/NmdIfm. Since every cell in body manufactures cholesterol (part of every cell membrane), very low LDL-C (down into teens) is rarely a health issue. LDL-P not being very low IS a major health issue. ...Read more
Pectoris atherosclerosis congestive heart failure coronary artery disease dilate hypertension myocardial angina pectoris, what are these?
Cv words: These all refer to cardiovascular particulars. Pectoris = Chest. Atherosclerosis = vascular wall scarring from cholesterol deposit. Coronary artery disease = narrowing and atherosclerosis of heart arteries. Dilate = expand diameter. Hypertension = high blood pressure (within arterial network). Myocardial = heart. Angina pectoris = pain of chest from coronary artery disease, lack of oxygen to heart ...Read more
Injury to artery: When the heart beats, it moves blood through the arteries in your body. High blood pressures causes arteries throughout the body to swell and stretch more than they would normally. This stretching can injure the endothelium, the lining of all arteries. Injured endothelium attracts more "bad" LDL cholesterol and white blood cells. The cholesterol and cells build up, causing plaque/ atherosclerosis. ...Read more
Yes: It turns out hypertension (HTN) is considered a "modifiable risk factor" for coronary artery disease (cad)- this means that treating HTN will decrease the risk of cad. About 40%-60% who need a heart bypass have htn. Many consider HTN the greatest risk factor cad. So, yes, you are likely to have HTN if you have CAD but there are always exceptions! ...Read more
What is the relationship between atherosclerosis and high blood pressure? Is there a relationship between atherosclerosis and high blood pressure?
Does everyone with high cholesterol and high blood pressure automatically have coronary atherosclerosis?
No: Vascular diseases are multifactorial. However, not controlling your medical conditions, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Can make you more prone to developing vascular problems, and clearly if you already have coronary or peripheral vascular disease, not managing these issues will lead to more rapid progression of the disease process. ...Read more
Would you most likely have high cholesterol and/or high blood pressure as cause of coronary atherosclerosis?
Yes: High blood press and high cholesterol are two of the risk factors for development of coronary disease. Other risk factors include diabetes, cigarette smoking, and positive family history. Other factors may include lack of exercise, obesity, stress and type a personality. Some people with normal BP and cholesterol may develop heart disease. The more risks factors one has raise the odds. ...Read more
Is 50-100 gram daily consumption of red wine harmful given a patient has kidney cyst and cholecystitis? The intetion of the consumption is to reduce atherosclerosis. The patient has hypertention.
What treatment option integrates treatment for high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, and coronary heart?
Best to Address All: The LDL & HDL lipoproteins (protein particles which carry all fats in the water outside cells, see NMR particle test) are the primary issue, along with blood glucose (optimal hba1c ≤5.0%), blood pressure (sbp ≤120 mmhg), no smoking & several other issues, known & not. Thus best to address all issues in unisyn, do not aim for normal. Instead aim for excellence: absence of drivers of the disease. ...Read more
Can you tell me how could sugar and salt, such tiny particles cause high blood pressure, blocked arteries, overweightness, etc?
Body response: It's not the particles themselves that cause the problems. Sugar leads to increase in blood sugar and the body's response to this is secretion of certain hormones, including things like cortisol (a steroid), which can have elevate blood pressure. Same with sodium, except the effect comes from the kidneys, a different hormone is secreted, but again, that hormone causes increase in blood pressure. ...Read more
Indirectly: It is not certain that someone with high cholesterol will have high blood pressure. Lots of people have only one, but a majority of those with hypertension will also have high lipids. This is due to the metabolic syndrome and may be mediated by Insulin resistance due to the western diet. In rare cases, the renal artery becomes narrowed from cholesterol leading directly to secondary hypertension. ...Read more
Renin-Aldosterone: Entire medical books have been written on this mechanism of action. Basically when the kidney has a blockage in the arteries leading to it it perceives a low blood pressure. Since the kidney has the ability to release a chemical signal that tells the body to increase blood pressure it does just that. The problem is is that blood pressure is increased throughout the entire body, not just the kidney, and can have adverse effects. ...Read more
Referred to nephrologist to see if kidneys contributing to hypertension. He ordered blood tests, including ANA. Why? What would it tell?
Y is BP in hypertension throughout the following day (s) after intense resistance training? Once I do cardio it goes back to optimal. Multiple readings
Not likely: First, relax. The blood pressure is not CHRONICALLY exacerbated by resistance exercise, though it may be while doing it. Being worried about it will itself potentially raise your BP. Cardio, or aerobic, exercise will benefit BP in the long term. Your anxiety is likely playing a role in your BP measurements, regardless of the exercise routine. ...Read more
What is the average of hypertension for mid 30's female? 145-135/90-80 are my average. Do I need exercise or change of food habit?
Many people think they can feel their hypertension. Maybe it is the inevitable side effects of their medication (s) they are experiencing?
Medical #: do people really ever have hypertension where no titrating of prescription (s), diet or exercise lowers the pressure? Alternatives?
Hypertension can be difficult to control:
1. Lifestyle (continued overweight, high alcohol or salt intake)
2. Underlying severe essential hypertension. Many people with essential hypertension need 3-5 prescription drugs daily. More powerful diuretics (furosemide, spironolactone) may have a dramatic effect.
3. Rare secondary hypertension due to meds, kidney or adrenal disease.
Hope this helps you. ...Read more
Renal Failure&stroke: Problem is you usually don't notice anything. If hypertension persists untreated it can lead to renal (kidney) failure, stroke, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, etc. At the very least, you can get your blood pressure checked in many supermarkets or pharmacies at their automated blood pressure machines. Desirable results would be less than 120/80 mm hg. ...Read more
Some causes of hypertension are reversible, most are not because in 95% of the cases we do not know what causes the development of high blood pressure. I suggest you read the following article:

Atherosclerosis is a common disease affecting the walls of arteries. Commonly described as "clogged" blood vessels, it can cause heart attack or stroke even without severe blockages: e.g., if blood clots form on plaques. High levels of LDL cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, & aging can all contribute to atherosclerosis, but prevention is possible ...Read more
Blocked arteries is a condition in which a person has decreased or no blood flow in one or more of his arteries, due to obstructions inside the artery such as thick plaques, floating clumps of broken plaques, blood clots, etc... Severe compression due to a problem on the outside of an artery can also ...Read more
