Not enough exercise- taking regular exercise and losing weight is VERY effective in lowering BP.
Reduce salt intake - fast food is very heavy in salt so eat more fruit and veg, chicken, fish, lean meat.
Lower your cholesterol intake - which can cause narrowing of the arteries and contribute to high BP. Animal fats like that in meat and dairy are the worst but use olive or sunflower oil for cooking, drink semi skimmed milk and control the amount of cheese and red meat you eat.
Hope this helps.

Does stevia leaf cause high blood pressure

Hello, April -

The only information I have found regarding stevia and hypertension (high blood pressure) talks about using stevia as a sweetner while taking medication to lower blood pressure.

From: MedlinePlus, a database of medical and health information from the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
Some research shows that stevia might decrease blood pressure. In theory, taking stevia along with medications used for lowering high blood pressure might cause your blood pressure to go too low. However, some research shows that stevia does not affect blood pressure. Therefore, it's not known if this potential interaction is a big concern.

What is the symptoms of high blood pressure?

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure -

- High blood pressure is generally a chronic condition and is often associated with few or no symptoms.
- When symptoms do occur, it is usually when blood pressure spikes suddenly and extremely enough to be considered a medical emergency.
- Rare symptoms include dizzy spells, headaches, and nosebleeds.

High blood pressure is often associated with few or no symptoms. Many people have it for years without knowing it. However, just because high blood pressure is often symptomless doesn't mean it is harmless. In fact, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or hypertension, causes damage to your arteries. High blood pressure is also a risk factor for stroke, heart attack, and other cardiovascular problems.

Rena: Normal blood pressure is a reading below 120/80. Your bottom number is a little too high. Here is where to start: decrease salt in your diet. Try to decrease stress (like taking a stress management class). Increase your daily exercise. Herbs that may help lower blood pressure include basil, cinnamin, flaxseed, garlic, ginger, hawthorn, celery seed, French lavendar, and cat's claw (but NOT the real cat!) :) Take your blood pressure at different times of the day and keep a record. Uncontrolld high blood pressure can lead to stroke by damaging and weakening your brain's blood vessels, causing them to narrow, rupture or leak. High blood pressure can also cause blood clots to form in the arteries leading to your brain, blocking blood flow and potentially causing a stroke. I used to work in a dialysis clinic and there were always plenty of men that did not control their blood pressure for many years and eventually wore out their kidneys. If you consistently stay above the recommended numbers, go see your doctor.

What causes low blood pressure?

low blood pressure dangerous only if it causes
noticeable signs and symptoms, such as:
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Fainting (called syncope )
Dehydration and unusual thirst - Dehydration can sometimes
cause blood pressure to drop. However, dehydration does not
automatically signal low blood pressure. Fever, vomiting, severe
diarrhea, overuse of diuretics and strenuous exercise can all lead
to dehydration, a potentially serious condition in which your body
loses more water than you take in. Even mild dehydration ( a loss
of as little as 1 percent to 2 percent of body weight ), can cause
weakness, dizziness and fatigue.
Lack of concentration
Blurred vision
Cold, clammy, pale skin
Rapid, shallow breathing
Low blood pressure can occur with:
Prolonged bed rest
Pregnancy - During the first 24 weeks of pregnancy, it's
common for blood pressure to drop.
Decreases in blood volume - A decrease in blood volume can
also cause blood pressure to drop. A significant loss of blood
from major trauma, dehydration or severe internal bleeding
reduces blood volume, leading to a severe drop in blood pressure.
Certain medications - A number of drugs can cause low blood
pressure, including diuretics and other drugs that treat
hypertension; heart medications such as beta blockers; drugs for
Parkinson's disease; tricyclic antidepressants; erectile dysfunction
drugs, particularly in combination with nitroglycerine; narcotics
and alcohol. Other prescription and over-the-counter drugs may
cause low blood pressure when taken in combination with HBP
Heart problems - Among the heart conditions that can lead to
low blood pressure are an abnormally low heart rate
(bradycardia ), problems with heart valves , heart attack and heart
failure . Your heart may not be able to circulate enough blood to
meet your body's needs.
Endocrine problems - Such problems include complications with
hormone-producing glands in the body's endocrine systems;
specifically, an under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism), parathyroid
disease, adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease), low blood
sugar and, in some cases, diabetes.
Severe infection (septic shock) - Septic shock can occur when
bacteria leave the original site of an infection (most often in the
lungs, abdomen or ******* tract) and enter the bloodstream. The
bacteria then produce toxins that affect blood vessels, leading to
a profound and life-threatening decline in blood pressure.
Allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) - Anaphylactic shock is a
sometimes-fatal allergic reaction that can occur in people who are
highly sensitive to drugs such as penicillin, to certain foods such
as peanuts, or to bee or wasp stings. This type of shock is
characterized by breathing problems, hives, itching, a swollen
throat and a sudden, dramatic fall in blood pressure.
Neurally mediated hypotension - Unlike orthostatic
hypotension, this disorder causes blood pressure to drop after
standing for long periods, leading to symptoms such as dizziness,
nausea and fainting. This condition primarily affects young people
and occurs because of a miscommunication between the heart
and the brain.
Nutritional deficiencies - A lack of the essential vitamins B-12
and folic acid can cause anemia, which in turn can lead to low
blood pressure.
Severely low blood pressure can have underlying causes that may:
Be an indication of serious heart, endocrine or neurological
Deprive the brain and other vital organs of oxygen and
nutrients, ultimately leading to shock, which can be life

What Really Is The basis for renal failure?

The many usual factors behind kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure (high blood-pressure). Studies show that diabetes causes around half of instances of renal failure, and questionable causes simply over 1 / 4 of instances.

Diabetes is a disorder where the human body doesn't generate enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or will not make efficient use of it (non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus). Our bodies require velosulin since it reduces the glucose (sugars) in our bloodstream as a way to generate saccharide which supplies us with electricity.

In the event your diabetes isn't well-controlled, an excessive amount of glucose (sugars) may develop in your bloodstream. The sugar may subsequently harm the nephrons (miniature filters), which then, influences the skills of your kidneys to filter waste materials and liquids.

Sort 1 diabetes is more inclined to guide to elimination infection. Approximately between 20-40% of people who have type 1 diabetes may create kidney infection by age fifty.

Elimination infection seldom happens typically in the first ten years of diabetes, and between 15-25 years may move before elimination infection happens. Yet, diabetes might be better restrained, and as therapy options for diabetes enhance, the amount of people who have diabetes who produce elimination infection is slowly dropping.

Blood-pressure is a measure of just how much stress is called for by your center to pump the blood through your veins and arterial vessels. A lot of stress will result in heart condition, and can lead to harm to your own human body's organs.

The root of 90% of cause of kidney stones of large blood-pressure (high blood pressure) are not known, but there is apparently a connection involving the status and overall health, diet and way of life

By getting tension to the little arteries in the kidneys harm is caused by high blood pressure. This stops from operating correctly the selection procedure.

Does high blood pressures med.cause you to have memory problems? And is there a way to get back off high blood pressure meds.?

As you know from watching television, all medications have many potential side effects. However, having said that, as a working RN for 25 years, I have never heard of blood pressure meds causing memory problems. If anything, it is the other way around: high blood pressure may cause decreased circulation to the brain and therefore possibly cause some memory loss. The thing about blood pressure meds is this: they are very very important! If you allow high blood pressure to go untreated, you can damage your eyes and your kidneys, both which have tons of small blood vessels. You can also wind up having a stroke. Generally, it is unsafe to get off blood pressure medications on your own.
