Hypertension Management

High blood pressure, which is also called hypertension, increases the risk of developing many serious health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease. Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure recommendations have defined “hypertension” as a BP of ≥140/90 mm Hg. The risk of cardiovascular disease in the patient with hypertension can be greatly reduced with effective antihypertensive therapy

Maintenance of normal body weight, following a proper diet plan, lifestyle modification including exercise, avoiding high-sodium content foods, limited alcohol consumption and appropriate medications as prescribed by the doctor may lead to a controlled and manageable blood pressure account. Also monitoring the blood pressure regularly may prevent hypertension and reduce the risk of high blood pressure-related health problems.

For the management of hypertension, weight reduction is necessary, to maintain an ideal body mass index (BMI) of 20-25 kg/m2. Offer a diet sheet and/or dietetic appointment. Dietary self-help (e.g., dieting clubs) may be appropriate. Patients should stop smoking (offer help ± nicotine replacement therapy) and drinking alcohol. Physical activities should be made a regular part of everyday life (e.g., walk or cycle to work, use the stairs instead of the lift, walk at lunchtime), and build in enjoyable activities to leisure time every week (e.g., walking, cycling, gardening, swimming, aerobics, etc.). Consider treating immediately if BP in clinic is ≥180/110 mm Hg; otherwise, consider after results of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) or home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM), blood tests and cardiovascular risk assessment are available. Drug treatment should be commenced in patients aged less than 80 years with stage 1 hypertension plus signs of end organ damage (known cardiovascular or renal disease). Treatment should be started in all patients (any age) with stage 2 hypertension. Treat isolated systolic hypertension in the same way.
