This condition, which is common in diabetics who are overweight, is characterized by your blood pressure regularly reading higher than 140/90 mmHg.  Hypertension is caused by a diet that includes fatty, salty and high-cholesterol foods. Emotional disturbances too, can heighten the danger of hypertension.

Kidney problems also may contribute to acquiring hypertension. Renal parenchyma and renal vascular diseases are the 2 most typical kidney ailments that could cause it.

If hypertension persists, several consequences could arise from it. individuals with hypertension can contract a stroke at anytime. the possibilities of stroke are very high.

High blood pressure may also affect the eyes, causing faulty vision. When the fine blood vessels break as a result of hypertension you may have blurry vision, which can also result in blindness. This is a serious condition that should be treated by a medical doctor.  Hypertension also can damage the kidneys because the  the blood vessels may become thicker.  


The best treatment for high blood pressure is regular exercise (1/2 hour or more per day), weight loss (to normal weight) and elimination of salt from the diet.  In addition, a good diet like the DASH which eliminates animal fats and focuses on vegetables, fruits and grains is essential.  There are a few foods that are especially good for high blood pressure including celery, beets and greens.  Vegetables and fruits are healthiest for blood pressure reduction when eaten raw.  You may also be prescribed drugs by your doctor, which control the condition but don't cure it.
