I Have Long-term High Blood Pressure. How does it Develop?

Q: I was diagnosed high blood pressure. What is High blood pressure?

A: High blood pressure is also called hypertension. It refers that systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure rise in a still condition. High blood pressure is kind of cardiovascular disease, associated with increasing blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against your artery walls as it goes through your body. High blood pressure always accompanies with heart, vessel, brain and kidney disease. There are a lot of reasons for high blood pressure, but the exact reason is not clear for now. Two main incentives are inheritable and environmental. There are two types of hypertension, which is essential hypertension and secondary hypertension.

In addition, the lack of negative ions in the blood is also an important cause of hypertension. Blood in the normal red blood cells, gum physical points, such as negatively charged, they repel each other, thus maintain a certain distance. Therefore, the red aging blood cells are positive charged due to the disruption of electronics. Owing to positive and negative phase suction, the red blood cells condensed into a regiment. Negative ions can effectively repair the aging cell membrane, potential, causing it to become normal negatively charged cells. At the same time, negative repulsion effectively reduces the blood viscosity so that ESR slows down. Anion can strengthen the negative trend of blood colloid particle, which will stabilize plasma protein, and maintain the normal health of blood. Therefore, if there is no enough negatively charged ions in blood, it will lead that the pathological changes of the erythrocyte cell membrane potential can not be repaired, thus leading to the occurrence of hypertension. As a result, high blood pressure happened.


Stage I hypertension: systolic pressure:140-159mmHg

                                   Diastolic pressure:90-99mmHg

Stage II hypertension: systolic pressure: 160-179mmHg

                                    Diastolic pressure:100-109mmHg

Stage III hypertension: systolic pressure: >=180mmHg

                                    Diastolic pressure: >=110mmHg

 Q: What should I do to lower it?

A:If you have high blood pressure, you should have enough rest and sleep. Don’t work very hard. Also, do not overdo exercise while doing regular activities. Diet is another important factor which could improve high blood pressure. Low-salt and low-fat diet are the best diets. Avoid food containing a lot of cholesterol. Obsessed patients should pay attention to their weight. Losing excessive weight will reduce the risk of high blood pressure.
