Depending on symptoms of hypertension is divided into stages. Determining the stage of development of hypertension is very important for the appointment of a doctor correct treatment of the disease. Step hypertension determined after all the diagnostic procedures - electrocardiograms, ultrasound, blood biochemistry, etc.
The first stage of hypertension - easy. Most light-stage hypertension goes unnoticed. So go to the doctor a few people. Symptoms include headaches, reduced efficiency, sleep disturbance. Blood pressure in the first stage of hypertension reaches 140-159 / 90-99 mm Hg Sometimes the pressure can be normalized, then rises again. After resting pressure returned to normal, but hypertension is already fixed, and an increase in pressure in the future will happen again.
The second stage of hypertension - average. Blood pressure is often understood and rarely comes to normal. The pressure on the rest of the stage becomes in the range of 160-179 / 100-109 mm Hg. Art. At the second stage of hypertension such symptoms occur: dizziness, headache, discomfort in the heart. As a complication may develop ischemia, vascular insufficiency, stroke brain.
The third stage of hypertension - severe. At this stage, blood pressure increases to 180/110 mm Hg. Art. and higher. Reduced pressure is practically not observed in severe hypertension during. If the pressure drops - this indicates a failure of the heart. Also occurs as a complication of hypertension in a third stage the development of atherosclerosis. Complications arise in the heart, kidneys, eyes. Perhaps in particular the development of these complications of the heart: heart attack, arrhythmia, angina pectoris.
