Top Risk Factors For Hypertension
For people with hypertension, or high blood pressure, medical alert bracelets are an extra layer of protection against serious complications from a cardiac event. If your blood pressure is high most of the time (that is, not just when you’re nervous at the doctor or have been drinking excessive amounts of caffeine, but high in resting and moderately active states), your doctor will likely run additional tests, measure your blood pressure at various points in the day, and diagnose you with high blood pressure. This means your blood pressure is usually 140/90 or above. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 or below (it can be too low, however, which is also potentially problematic).
Many different factors increase one’s risk of developing hypertension:
- Excessive stress
- Family history of hypertension
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Chronic kidney disease
- Cushing Syndrome
- Certain heart conditions
If you have hypertension, medical ID jewelry may help ensure that, in an emergency situation, first responders who are caring for you will be aware that your high blood pressure is not a symptom of an acute problem but rather your normal baseline. This means they will pay particular attention to your heart while treating you and they will not be needlessly searching for an immediate cause of your current high blood pressure reading.
