Is your blood pressure on a rollercoaster ride? If so, you're six times more likely to have a stroke!

by , 30 January 2014

Have you noticed your blood pressure is on a rollercoaster ride recently? One day it seems like quite a normal reading while the next it's soaring? If this sounds like you, pay attention! You're at higher risk of having a heart attack or a stroke than someone with consistently high blood pressure readings.

You know that if your blood pressure is high, you need to worry about your stroke and heart attack risk. But what if your blood pressure rollercoasters?
 
Many people suffer from episodic hypertension, but they think they’re at lower risk, because there’s days when their blood pressure is normal. And having a normal blood pressure, even if it’s only on most days, is good right?
 
Not exactly… You’re six times more likely to have a stroke!
 
There’s an increased risk of stroke when your blood pressure is on a rollercoaster ride
 
There are a number of ways to treat consistently high blood pressure readings. But there’s not many options available for you in terms of medication when your blood pressure is up and down because they’re not specific enough.
 
While you could take normal drugs, they could cause your blood pressure to drop to dangerously low levels when it’s supposed to have returned to “normal” during a non-hypertensive episode you’re going through. So you’d also have to take stabilising medications!
 
And because you’re not as capable of controlling your blood pressure highs and lows by yourself, you’re at a higher risk of having a stroke. 
 
Controlling your blood pressure is important to lowering your risk of stroke
 
Whether your blood pressure changes are because of your diet, lifestyle or stresses in your life, you need to learn how to control it. 
 
Control your blood pressure by changing your diet and lifestyle habits so you can lower your risk of having a stroke.
