Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on a new study that shows how treating hypertension alone is not considered to be effective for anti-aging efforts.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/heart-health/sleep-your-way-to-healthy-blood-pressure/), about one third of adults in the United States suffer from high blood pressure. Blood pressure problems, including high blood pressure, often have no symptoms and individuals may go undiagnosed for years.
And according to the medical report, elderly adults generally develop several medical conditions and thus treating hypertension alone without looking into the other diseases may not be a helpful anti-aging strategy for this subpopulation.
The report has shown that elderly individuals may also present symptoms of dementia, diabetes, and kidney disease. It is thus possible that the elderly patient is already taking medications against any of these medical conditions and that adding an anti-hypertensive may result in harmful drug interactions within the body. Drug interactions may often produce side effects such as nausea and discomfort, which may decrease the quality of life of the elderly patient.
As Bel Marra the article reports, the recent medical report emphasized the importance of assessing the entire condition of a patient before prescribing any medications for hypertension. This strategy ensures the patient that his or her chances to live longer would be higher because the potential of side effects from taking various drugs would be lower; the elderly patient’s quality of life and capacity to feel younger would also improve.
It is also possible to use the anti-aging strategy of low-sodium diets for elderly individuals with hypertension. This lifestyle intervention minimizes the use of sodium or salt, which is strongly linked with elevated blood pressure.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “Aging is a stage of human life that is closely associated with the development of diseases; although various anti-aging strategies are currently available for specific medical conditions, it is important to understand that a simple prescription may also result in side effects that are attributable to drug interactions in the body.”
