When you have high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, you might not have any symptoms, but your risk of having a heart attack or other health problems is greater. Keeping your blood pressure in a healthy range helps lower your risk of serious health issues. David Ramin, MD offers treatment for men and women in Beverly Hills, California who have hypertension.
Hypertension usually doesn’t cause any symptoms, which makes it a dangerous condition. You can have high blood pressure for many years without realizing it. If your blood pressure does reach a severe or potentially life-threatening level, you might have a few symptoms, such as a nosebleed, trouble breathing, or headaches. If this happens, you’ll need to seek immediate medical care.
During your visit with Dr. Ramin, you’ll have your blood pressure taken to see if it falls within a healthy range, which is below 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is high, Dr. Ramin will discuss ways to manage hypertension to bring it down to a healthy level. If you’ve already been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you’ll need to have your blood pressure taken more often to see whether or not it’s still high.
You might have a higher risk of hypertension if you have one or more risk factors, such as:
If you have primary hypertension, you might not ever find out what causes it. This type of hypertension develops slowly over the years. If you have secondary hypertension, it means you have an underlying condition that’s affecting your blood pressure, such as sleep apnea, thyroid disorders, or kidney problems. You can also develop secondary hypertension from some types of medications, including over-the-counter pain relievers and some birth control pills.
Dr. Ramin will talk to you about ways to manage your blood pressure. That might include making lifestyle changes, such as eating healthier, avoiding high-sodium foods, and exercising on a regular basis. Dr. Ramin might also recommend medications that help lower your blood pressure, such as thiazide diuretics or beta blockers.
If you have hypertension or need a blood pressure reading, please contact David Ramin, MD to set up an appointment.
