What is H-type hypertension?
What is H-type hypertension? What disease is this H-type hypertension? Can ordinary antihypertensive drugs lower it? Is there any harm? Homocysteine (homocysteine, Hey) has been mentioned for H-type hypertension.
Today we will talk about H-type hypertension. Speaking of H-type hypertension, we have to mention a substance in the body, homocysteine (homocysteine, Hey) for short, is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is the product of methionine demethylation. Is Hey’s only source.
A variety of factors can lead to the accumulation of total homocysteine (tHcy) levels in the blood, resulting in hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy), referred to as hyperhomocysteinemia.
Hyperemia can also reflect the abnormal state of the body’s methylation status and transsulfide, damage cells, tissues, and organs. It is an independent or important risk factor for many chronic diseases. It is the same as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia. One of the important indicators to determine health risks.
So what is the relationship between high blood pressure and high blood pressure? Hey causes sodium reabsorption, stimulates the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and changes the elasticity of blood vessel walls, resulting in high blood pressure. Blood is positively correlated with systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Every increase of 5umol/L can increase systolic blood pressure by 0.45mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by 0.47mmHg.
The prevalence of hypertension is positively correlated with blood. H-type hypertension has a significant synergistic effect, which is 4 times the risk of stroke from hypertension alone.
So the antihypertensive drugs given to such patients are often combined with folic acid tablets, vitamin B12, vitamin 6 and other drugs.
1. What is the cause of hypertension?
According to the etiology, hypertension is divided into three categories:
- secondary hypertension;
- special type of hypertension;
2. What is essential hypertension?
Hypertension of unknown cause is essential hypertension, which is what we usually call hypertension. Essential hypertension is the most common cardiovascular disease. Most of the blood pressure began to increase significantly after the age of 40, so it is more common in middle-aged and elderly people. Regarding the cause of the disease, most scholars believe that it is based on a certain genetic basis, coupled with the combined effects of a variety of acquired factors, that cause the body’s blood pressure regulation function to be abnormal and a group of symptoms dominated by blood pressure rise. It is an independent disease with hypertension as the main clinical manifestation, accounting for about 90% of all hypertensive patients.
3. What is secondary hypertension?
Hypertension secondary to other diseases, that is to say, a disease with a clear primary disease and accompanied by symptoms and signs of increased blood pressure is also called symptomatic hypertension. It is common in acute and chronic kidney disease, endocrine disease, vascular disease, brain disease and pregnancy poisoning. In secondary hypertension, if the cause is clear and treated properly, it can be completely cured. For example, adrenal cortical adenoma is also called aldosteronoma, and blood pressure can return to normal after surgery. If the underlying disease is not cured, the symptoms of hypertension will persist. In this case, the clinical manifestations and complications caused by hypertension are similar to those of primary hypertension. Therefore, when a patient with hypertension undergoes regular treatment for a period of time and the blood pressure control is not satisfactory, the possibility of secondary hypertension must be considered.
4. What is a special type of hypertension?
Clinically, it is difficult to attribute primary hypertension or secondary hypertension to special hypertension. Its characteristic is that only symptomatic treatment for the causes of these hypertension can effectively reduce blood pressure.
