Blood is carried from the heart to all the body's tissues and organs in pipes, called arteries and veins. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of those pipes. The unit for measuring blood pressure is millimeters of mercury (mmHg). In most people, hypertension , or high blood pressure , is defined as either: a systolic pressure consistently at 140 or higher or a diastolic pressure consistently at 90 or higher. In some groups, such as those with diabetes or kidney disease , a high blood pressure is a systolic blood pressure (top number) of 130 or higher or a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) of 80 or higher. Each time the heart beats (about 60 to 70 times a minute at rest) it pumps blood out into the blood vessels. When the heart is pumping the blood, it is called systolic pressure. When the heart is relaxing in between beats, your blood pressure falls; this is the diastolic pressure. A normal blood pressure is less than 120 (systolic)/80 (diastolic). If the...
In one word, potassium. Nearly 95% of the high blood pressure in the world is known as primary, essential, or idiopathic hypertension . It is called this because no clear underlying cause can be identified. Instead, doctors simply treat the high blood pressure, never actually curing it. The underlying mechanism of such high blood pressure involves sodium chloride, otherwise known as salt . Groups of people who eat less than 3 grams of sodium chloride per day rarely have high blood pressure. Although most people who have high blood pressure consume 3 to 6 grams of salt per day, the opposite is not necessarily true. In other words, most people who do consume a large amount of sodium do not have high blood pressure . It thus seems that high sodium intake is necessary but not enough to raise one’s pressure. The missing element is potassium. If one has both a high sodium and a low potassium diet, high blood pressure is likely to result. A Western diet, such as in the United Stat...
