LENGKONG, AYOBANDUNG.COM – Hypertension or high blood pressure can cause heart health problems. In addition, people with high blood pressure are prone to contracting corona with severe symptoms. Furthermore, high blood pressure can cause death.
Normal human blood pressure ranges from 120/80 mmHg. For those who have more than that, they can be categorized as having high blood pressure.
When blood pressure is high, the heart is forced to pump blood and circulate it throughout the body.
Hypertension is divided into primary hypertension (essential) or secondary hypertension. Approximately 90–95% of cases are classified as “primary hypertension”, which means high blood pressure without an obvious medical cause. Other conditions that affect the kidneys, arteries, heart, or the endocrine system account for another 5-10% of cases (secondary hypertension).
The following are trigger factors that can affect the increased risk of hypertension:
1. Over 65 years of age
2. Consume lots of salt
4. Having a family with hypertension
5. Eat less fruits and vegetables
6. Rarely exercise
7. Drink too much coffee (or other beverages that contain caffeine)
8. Too much alcohol consumption.
The risk of hypertension can be prevented by eating foods with good nutritional content and changing your lifestyle to be healthier. Thus reported from Halodoc. (Aufa Fadil)
