Risk Of Heart Attack Increase From Pre-Hypertension

Research published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association, had said that people suffering //from pre-hypertension are at a much higher risk of heart attacks and developing heart disease than others.

Pre-hypertension condition is noted by the systolic blood pressure remaining between 120 and 139, and the diastolic pressure remaining between 80 and 89 mm Hg. Blood pressure hovering in any one of these two parameters may signify pre-hypertension conditions.

Researchers from University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey who did the study had said that signifies that you may not be hypertensive but the blood pressure is not normal also. They have examined data from the Framingham Study and had found that a person suffering from pre-hypertension is thrice as likely to have a heart attack and 1.7 times more likely to develop cardiac diseases than a person with normal blood pressure. However, this condition did not increase the risk of the person to have a stroke. Researchers feel that the risk of increased incidence of stroke may be due to more reasons like insulin resistance, than increased blood pressure

Researchers recommend regular exercise; control of body weight, and changes implemented in the diet and lifestyle can work together to make the people with pre-hypertension control their condition.
