What you should know about a blood pressure of 149/90

Requirement for a blood pressure Hypertension Stage 1 is a value of 140-159 over 90-99.

Doctors consider a person with a 149/90 blood pressure as hypertensive. A case of hypertension could be primary or secondary. A primary case of hypertension can be from a person’s diet or obesity. Hypertension may develop from a high sodium intake, as well.

A secondary case of hypertension may come from a reaction to a medication. Secondary hypertension can develop because of a heart, liver or kidney disease, as well. Diabetes may play a role in the development of stage 1 hypertension. Doctors will want to control or reduce a patient’s hypertension before it becomes a case of stage 2 hypertension or a hypertensive crisis. Medical specialists may use a variety of methods to treat a person with stage 1 hypertension.

Hypertension Stage 1 can cause damage to a person’s kidneys, liver and heart if he or she does not receive treatment for it. Therefore, a physician will most likely implement a dietary plan for a person with stage 1 hypertension. He or she may also prescribe pharmaceutical drugs such as thiazide, lisinopril, nadolol or diltiazem. A person who is over the age of 20 should receive a blood pressure reading a least once every two years to check for high blood pressure. Quick action is the best defense against the condition.
