What is hypertension?

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a medical disorder in which the pressure inside the blood vessels remains consistently high. When the blood pressure reading is 140/90 mmHg or higher, it is usually diagnosed as hypertension. Hypertension can lead to serious health complications such as heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, and vascular dementia if left untreated.

Symptoms of hypertension

Hypertension symptoms vary from person to person, depending upon their condition. Some may show signs early, while others may remain asymptomatic even with abnormally high blood pressure. Some common symptoms include:

  • Blood spot in the eye
  • Shortness of breath
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Severe headache
  • Vision problem
  • Blood in urine
  • Nosebleed
  • Chest pain

Causes of hypertension

High blood pressure, often known as hypertension, can have two main causes: primary hypertension and secondary hypertension. Primary hypertension, which is the most common type, develops gradually over time and is often linked to lifestyle factors such as a high-salt diet, lack of exercise, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, stress, and genetics. 

In contrast, secondary hypertension develops as a result of an existing medical condition. Such conditions include kidney disease, adrenal disorders, thyroid disorders, congenital heart defects, obstructive sleep apnea, specific prescription drugs, illicit substances, and hormonal changes during pregnancy. Determining the exact cause of hypertension is essential to determine the best treatment and management strategies.

Treatment and medication options for hypertension

Based on the provided sources, the treatment and medication options for hypertension include a variety of classes of blood pressure medications:

  • Diuretics, also known as water pills, help the body eliminate excess sodium and water, reducing blood volume and lowering blood pressure. Common diuretics include thiazide diuretics like chlorthalidone and hydrochlorothiazide.
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors reduce the production of angiotensin II, a hormone that constricts blood vessels, leading to lower blood pressure. Examples of ACE inhibitors include lisinopril, enalapril, and captopril.
  • ARBs block the action of angiotensin II, helping relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Common ARBs include losartan, valsartan, and irbesartan.
  • Calcium channel blockers prevent calcium from entering the muscle cells of the heart and blood vessels, leading to blood vessel relaxation and reduced blood pressure. Examples of calcium channel blockers are amlodipine, diltiazem, and verapamil.
  • Other blood pressure medications include beta-blockers, alpha-blockers, alpha-2 receptor agonists, vasodilators, aldosterone receptor antagonists, and centrally acting drugs. These medications work through different mechanisms to help lower blood pressure and manage hypertension effectively.
