a. Overview

About 1 in 3 adults in the United States has high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension), which increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, the first and third leading causes of death in the United States.[1] Persistent high blood pressure is also a leading cause of chronic kidney failure.[2] Even moderate elevation of arterial blood pressure leads to shortened life expectancy. Beginning at a systolic pressure of 115 mmHg and diastolic pressure of 75 mmHg (written as 115/75 mmHg), cardiovascular disease risk doubles for each increment of 20/10 mmHg.[3]

High blood pressure itself usually has no symptoms. You can have it for years without knowing it. During this time, it can damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. This is why knowing your blood pressure numbers is important, even when you're feeling fine.

b. Classification

The table below shows blood pressure criteria for defining normal blood pressure, pre-hypertension, hypertension (stages I and II). The ranges in the table apply to most adults (aged 18 and older) who don't have short-term serious illnesses. Patients with blood pressures over 130/80 mmHg along with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, or kidney disease require further treatment.[3]

Category Systolic (top number)
mmHg
Diastolic (bottom number)
mmHg
Normal 90–119 And 60–79
Pre-hypertension 120–139 Or 80–89
Stage 1 hypertension 140–159 Or 90–99
Stage 2 hypertension ≥160 Or ≥100

High blood pressure can be classified as either primary or secondary. Primary hypertension means that no medical cause can be found to explain the raised blood pressure and represents about 90-95% of hypertension cases.[4][5][6] Secondary hypertension indicates that the high blood pressure is a result of another condition, such as kidney disease or tumors.

c. Signs and symptoms

Mild to moderate primary hypertension usually has no warning signs or symptoms. Severe hypertension is associated with headache, somnolence, confusion, visual disturbances, and nausea and vomiting. Retinas are affected with narrowing of arterial diameter, copper or silver wire appearance, exudates, hemorrhages, or papilledema.

d. Common Causes

While the most prevalent (90-95% of cases) hypertension type - primary hypertension - has an unknown cause, there are many factors such as sedentary lifestyle, stress, visceral obesity, potassium deficiency (hypokalemia), obesity (more than 85% of cases occur in those with a body mass index greater than 25), salt (sodium) sensitivity, alcohol intake, and vitamin D deficiency. High blood pressure risk also increases with aging, some inherited genetic mutations and family history.

Secondary hypertension by definition results from an identifiable underlying secondary cause. It is much less common than primary hypertension, affecting only 5% of cases. It has many different causes including endocrine diseases (such as Cushing's syndrome - an excessive secretion of the hormone cortisol by the adrenal glands), kidney diseases, and tumors. It also can be a side effect of many medications.

e. Treatment

Lifestyle Modifications
The process of managing hypertension according the guidelines of the British Hypertension Society suggest that non-pharmacological options should be explored in all patients who are hypertensive or pre-hypertensive. Lifestyle changes such as the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet, physical exercise, and weight loss have been shown to significantly reduced blood pressure in people with high blood pressure.[7] If hypertension is high enough to justify immediate use of medications, lifestyle changes are initiated concomitantly.

Medications
There are many classes of medications for treating hypertension. The aim of treatment is often to achieve blood pressure of <140/90 mmHg for most patients, and lower in certain contexts such as diabetes or kidney disease.[8] Each added drug may reduce the systolic blood pressure by 5-10 mmHg, thus multiple drugs are often necessary to achieve the desired blood pressure level.

Commonly used drugs include:
  • ACE inhibitors: captopril, enalapril, fosinopril (Monopril), lisinopril (Zestril), quinapril, ramipril (Altace)
  • Angiotensin II receptor antagonists (where ACE inhibitors are not tolerated): telmisartan (Micardis, Pritor), irbesartan (Avapro), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), candesartan (Amias), olmesartan (Benicar, Olmetec)
  • Calcium channel blockers: nifedipine (Adalat), amlodipine (Norvasc), diltiazem, verapamil
  • Diuretics: bendroflumethiazide, chlorthalidone, hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ).

Natural supplements should be used as a part of an overall program that includes dietary and lifestyle changes as referenced above.
