High blood pressure is seen alongside diabetes in as many as 65% of people who suffer from diabetes. Studies on the matter suggest that it is because the condition causes the heart to work much harder than usual, and it can leave you at risk of developing other serious health issues like heard disease, stroke, and hardening of the arteries.
The best way to stay away from the development of diabetes and high blood pressure is to make sure that you monitor and control your blood sugar levels as well as your blood pressure levels very closely.
Diabetes and Blood Pressure
Oftentimes it can actually be said that diabetes leads to blood pressure problems, because when you suffer from uncontrolled diabetes, you constantly have high amounts of sugar in your blood stream. The sugar can cause damage to the nephrons in the kidneys, which play a big role in the regulation of blood pressure. In turn, this can lead to high blood pressure.
This is also why diabetes and high blood pressure is viewed as some of the leading causes for kidney disease and kidney failure. The American Diabetes Association recommends that diabetics should try and keep their blood pressure levels at somewhere around 130/80 mmHg, which is lower than that recommended for people without diabetes.
Stress is not necessarily a direct cause of high blood pressure, but since excessive stress hormones in the body can trigger the need for energy in the body, which in turn leads to more glucose in the blood stream, which can start to hinder the healthy plod pressure in the body, we can actually conclude that stress plays a big role in the management of proper blood pressure levels.
Relaxation is an important part of managing your blood pressure, as it can help you reduce stress and rebalance the hormones in your body. Relaxation means different things to different people, but the important thing is just to do something that helps you switch off and blow off some steam.
It can also help with other problems like digestive issues, weight loss, and fatigue.
