In most of the cases it is noted that High Blood Pressure exists long before its complications are established and shows its symptoms. To treat High Blood Pressure it is essential to diagnose it in its early stages before it could cause any serious harm to our organs in our body. Treatment of Hypertension in its early stages decreases risks of heart attack, strokes and kidney failures.
It is essential to note down your blood pressure reading regularly, if blood pressure uniformly is higher than 140/90 mm Hg it is advised to change your lifestyle with suitable medication for its treatment. And in the case of diastolic pressure when it stays at borderline level which is under 90 mm HG and gradually remains above 85 mm HG at this time more advanced treatment might be recommended. Diastolic pressure at borderline levels could damage our body organs, it is usually connected with systolic hypertension and it might also increase the risks of causing diabetes and hyperlipemia.
A patient at any stage of hypertension could start with any one from the various types of classes of treatment apart from alpha-blocker treatment, because alpha-blockers are used in amalgamation with other anti-hypertensive treatment and are used only under specific medical conditions.
In some specific condition particular classes of anti-hypertensive medication are preferred as compared to others as choice of medication. The angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) which are inhibitors or the angiotensin receptor blocking (ARB) medication which are some of the early prescribed medicines exclusively for patients with chronic kidney failure, heart failure, for diabetic patients as well as for patients with weak heart muscles.
Additionally for some patients with hypertension sometimes have coexisting medical conditions in this case a particular class of anti-hypertensive medication or a combination of which may be preferred as the early method in treating high blood pressure. The justification behind this is to control the hypertension at the same time curing the coexisting medical condition.
