9 out of 10 cases of hypertension caused by hereditary factors

Hypertension is the highest cause of death in addition to heart disease. Well for friends vigilant with this hypertension. This time I wanted to share about the causes of hypertension. By knowing the cause of it, hopefully we can avoid the occurrence of complications due to hypertension. Further consider the following article:

Hypertension or high blood pressure is known to be a derived condition. As many as 9 out of 10 people who suffer from hypertension due to hereditary factors proved.

"About 90-95 per cent or 9 out of 10 patients with hypertension due to hereditary factors, so it means a reduced talent already there," said Prof. Dr. Dr. Jose Roesma, SpPD-KGH in the event of The 5th Scientific Meeting on Hypertension 2011 in the Ritz Charlton Hotel, Jakarta Saturday (02/26/2011).

Professor Jose said this talent could be from parents, uncle, grandfather, grandmother or aunt and will appear or if the situation develops and supports the surrounding environment. Because these transcription factors can not be avoided, then this environment to be maintained for example maintain weight, not eating too much salt and exercise so as not to become hypertensive.

"Hypertension is usually silent or do not have symptoms that appear, sometimes after 5-10 years feels new or existing complications," said Prof. Jose.

An estimated 76 percent of cases of hypertension in the community that have not been diagnosed, in this case one does not know that he suffered from hypertension. This is because hypertension does not show any symptoms or complaints so often referred to as the silent killer.

The high prevalence of hypertension allegedly closely associated with lifestyle, stress levels, eating patterns, especially in terms of salt consumption and physical inactivity. Based on 2007 data Riskesdas known almost a quarter (24.5 percent) of Indonesia's population aged over 10 years of eating a salty meal times or more each day.

"If someone already has high blood pressure will have to change lifestyles and also taking the drug. Because if not in 10 years just select the heart, stroke or dialysis," said Prof. Dr. MA Roesli Ruly, SpPD-KGH.

Somewhat normal blood pressure 120/80 and said if the value of high blood pressure if its value is 140/90. And if the pressure between 120-140 for systolic and 80-90 for diastoliknya, then called prehypertension. People who prehypertension should be careful and keep the pattern of his life so as not to cause complications.

Prof. Rully revealed in measuring blood pressure should also be done right, like in a sitting position, not out smoking, not drinking coffee out, not after exercise, not full bladder condition and has been calibrated tools.

"For that measure blood pressure is important and should be done regularly and properly. We encourage all people know how much blood pressure has, just like when he knows what blood type," said Prof. Rully.

The public should know that hypertension is a serious medical condition, can cause complications and should not be overlooked. Thus check blood pressure regularly and correctly.
