Norm and insignificant deviation from it

Worldwide recognition is considered normal blood pressure is 80 over 120. But scientists began to argue hotly about this, and decided to investigate further. They took part men and women of all ages.

Thanks to the experience of pressure measurement and communication about the health of the subjects, came to the conclusion that fluctuations of 20 units lower heart rate still can not be called a disease. Such people have not detected any deviations in the work of the heart vessels.

On approval of the same group of experimenters, for people over 45 years increasing the top rate of 20 units does not increase the risk of acute heart failure in the vessels. Guided by the foregoing, American cardiologists were asked to recognize the normal pressure of 100 to 140.

Dangerous signal for the heart

Even healthy people can be noted that during the day the pressure slightly changes their performance. To end nature of hypotension, unfortunately, not been studied. The main cause is a disruption in the work unit that is responsible for the regulation of vascular tone. The disease may develop as a consequence of infectious diseases, for example, a severe case of the flu, sores or due to deficiency.

More likely to suffer from ailments associated with low pressure, middle-aged people and young people. Then quite often hypotension "transformered" in hypertension, blood vessels are clogged and unhealthy, the walls appear cholesterol.

For a long time it was believed that only pressure "Hyper" is dangerous for the heart because of increased blood flow, means increased load on the heart muscle, and this has a negative effect. Therefore, people with high levels often suffer from heart disease, and the risk of heart attack or stroke, increases. Sad as it may sound, vascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world.

Pay attention to your health, proper nutrition and proper sleep, more walk in the fresh air and let the unpleasant symptoms of pressure changes do not disturb your heart.
