The Symptoms And Types Of Hypertension

Hypertension has several symptoms, high blood pressure Systemic, arterial hypertension or hypertensive heart disease but the commonest variety of hypertension is know as essential hypertension. Strangely enough there is no part of the world that hypertension is completely absent, hypertension is a medical condition that tends to favour some people more than others, this is the reason there are several names for the illness in different parts of the world .

It’s more popular among the elite class and the socialites of our present world, it is even on debate that it should be considered a symptoms complex and not a disease state. The proponents say it is too common to be classified as a disease since it is even without any specific symptoms of its own yet it herald some detrimental disorder such as kidney failure or nerve paralysis, so many regards it as a symptom of a bigger disorder.

But I think illness incapacitate and annihilate. And hypertension can stylishly perform both of these tasks and it will do them very accurately too. To me illness are treated with drugs and high blood pressure is known to respond to several drugs. Arterial hypertension or systemic hypertension is the common type. It affects the heart and the general blood circulation. The unpopular hypertension is in various categories. This type affects organs and tissues of the body they have no direct link with high performance of the heart itself . A good example is the type which affect the lungs and the blood flows to the airway . This is called ‘pulmonary hypertension’ [pulmo is latin word for the lungs]

There are some other unpopular types of hypertension too and they include ocular hypertension which means that the eyeball structure are under an increased influence of tension from the fluids bathing them .

This results is some degree of visual disturbance or even blindness. A good evidence of ocular hypertension is the illness of the eye called glaucoma. Another beautiful subgroups of the unpopular variety of hypertension is the one which afflicts the liver. The liver may be diseased and it may be working under an increased pressure . This means that blood flow is greatly impeded and its general workability is impaired . This type of hypertension is called portal hypertension. It is a notable killer among alcoholics hepatitis.

There is post traumatic hypertension too and it is high blood pressure which is sequel to an accident, often a near fatal one . Also there is high blood pressure arising from defective ductless gland function. It is referred to as hypertension of endocrine origin . Some other variant do exist of the popular class of arterial hypertension and they include the unstable blood pressure disorder such as labile hypertension and paroxysmal hypertension , but there are other two not well know subgroups of the popular arterial high blood pressure disorder that must be mentioned .

They are the arterial hypertensive heart disorder caused solely by pregnancy or that which has been corrected by surgery, these high blood pressure states are respectively called pregnancy induced hypertension [PH] and surgically correctable hypertension.
