Simple Guidance To Lower Your Blood Pressure

Syndo’s unique counseling program has been developed with the support of cardiologists and helps people control their blood pressure through simple lifestyle adjustments.

High Blood Pressure?

A Silent Killer

In Belgium, 2.5 million people suffer from blood pressure. However, only 50% of these people have been officially diagnosed with the condition. Because often no specific symptoms present themselves, high blood pressure usually is discovered by accident. But undiagnosed and uncontrolled blood pressure can eventually lead to serious cardiovascular diseases such as a heart attack or stroke (the two leading causes of death in Belgium) and kidney failure. Together with other risk factors, high blood pressure increases the risk for these conditions by a factor of 2 or 3! That’s why high blood pressure is often referred to as a “silent killer.”

Lowering Your Blood Pressure Permanently

If there are no symptoms, how can you control your blood pressure?

Measure, measure, measure

CCheck your blood pressure regularly. If you’re blood pressure is above 140/90 mmHg it is considered as elevated.

Adjust Your Lifestyle

An unhealthy lifestyle can raise your blood pressure. Avoid smoking, salt, alcohol, obesity, too little exercise, stress, etc.

Medication

In some cases, your doctor may prescribe medication to lower your blood pressure.

The risks of high blood pressure

High blood pressure has a detrimental effect on your entire cardiovascular system and can eventually lead to serious problems such as heart failure.

First, prolonged high pressure can damage your blood vessels, organs, and eyes.

Second, accumulations in your veins (cholesterol, blood clots) may start to form and can increase the risk of a heart attack.

Finally, your heart has to work harder, which also increases the risk of heart failure.

Along with other risk factors, high blood pressure increases the risk of heart attack or stroke by a factor of 2 or 3!

The risk of kidney failure also increases considerably.

The more important the older you get

We usually associate high blood pressure with older people. This in itself is correct because you are more susceptible to high blood pressure the older you get.

But did you know that you already have an increased risk of hypertension from the age of 40? That’s why cardiologists recommend checking your blood pressure regularly as of this age.
