High Blood Pressure in Young Adults: Causes and Solution

Introduction

In today’s world, high blood pressure has become a leading health issue that raises great concern in people of diverse age groups. This prevalent medical issue of high blood pressure severely impacts the arteries in the body. It has also been conferred the name of hypertension. In this condition, blood exerts constant pressure on the artery walls, so the heart has to work harder to pump blood. A blood pressure level of 130/80 millimetres of mercury (mm Hg) or greater is considered hypertension. High blood pressure poses the threat of heart attack, stroke, and other significant health issues if left untreated.

So, from a very early age, it is crucial to monitor blood pressure levels, and any Walk in Clinic can help the patients check and diagnose the anomalies. Leading a healthy lifestyle can help prevent high blood pressure. It requires giving up harmful habits like smoking, and instead, one must resort to exercising and a healthy diet. In severe cases, medication alone can help the patient lower blood pressure.

Causes

  • It is being observed that young adults are developing hypertension traits from an early age owing to the lack of discipline in life and habits- unhealthy food preferences and lack of exercise. In the case of Primary hypertension or essential hypertension, there is no definite causative agent. With age, plaques develop in the arteries leading to a condition called atherosclerosis that blocks the flow of blood and enhances the chances of high blood pressure.
  • However, in the case of Secondary hypertension, it surfaces all of a sudden and exerts pressure on artery walls. Certain medical conditions that lead to this secondary hypertension are congenital heart malformations, adrenal gland tumours, thyroid issues, and kidney failure. Again, substance abuse, consumption of birth control pills, and pain relievers also lead to this medical condition.

Solution

Introducing positive lifestyle changes is the only solution to avert this health risk. For instance, consuming healthy food with less salt and giving up alcohol and smoking can help maintain normal blood pressure levels. It must be teamed with regular physical activities and nine hours of sleep. However, the ones suffering from severe stages of hypertension need to resort to medications that are easily available at any Walk-in Clinic in Niagara and Welland.

Some of the most commonly prescribed medicines for high blood pressure are Diuretics (water pills) that remove salt and water from the body, Calcium channel inhibitors that relax the blood vessel muscles and Inhibitors of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE).

Final Thought

So it may be concluded that adhering to a healthy lifestyle can help avoid numerous health issues, including hypertension. The awareness of the problem can alert young adults to stay true to the health regime and prevent exposure to health risks. At the same time, regular check-ups at any Walk-in Clinic may prove beneficial as well.

Testimonials

On a Sunday, I was able to book an appointment online for 12:00 noon the next day. I arrived 10 minutes early and found that the clinic is extremely efficient and beautiful inside. I walked out at 12:22 with having talked to a receptionist, nurse, got x-rays done and talked to a doctor. If I had gone to a hospital emergency room, the wait would have been 5 hours or more. At the clinic, I was and out in just over 30 minutes. I highly recommend this clinic for it’s efficiency and level of care.

My son had acute onset of face and head pain. The clinic booked us in, in less than 24hrs…..for context we couldn’t see his pediatrician until October.
When we arrived at the clinic the check in process was fast an efficient! We maybe waited 10 minutes then we were called to a room and seen by Dr. Gerald who was AMAZING. He was thorough and explained everything in terms we could understand. He did not force medication or uneeded services and explained what to do if things worsened. I wish he was our pediatrician!
We will definitely be using this clinic in the future.

I booked an appointment at noon. My information was taken and covid screening took place as soon as I walked in. I barely sat down before being brought to an examination room where I was promptly asked questions by a nurse. I was sent for an X-ray just across the hall (X-ray techs were out for lunch until 12:30, but promptly brought me in upon return. Quick and efficient X-ray process, then back to the clinic, where I was immediately directed to an examination room. I just waited a few moments before a doctor came in, asked a few questions, examined/tested my knee, gave me my X-ray results and shared my prognosis. Even with the short wait for the X-ray, I was in and out before my lunch hour was finished. Everyone in the process was friendly, helpful, professional, thorough and efficient. Very clean space. Recommended.

Oly Backstrom

Booked an appointment for my 7 year old. We got in quickly, and the nurse and doctor were both wonderful at making her feel comfortable. The receptionist was friendly and the office was big and very very clean. The online booking was easy to use, and the option to book a same day or next day appointment was wonderful. We will absolutely return to this clinic for our needs in the future.

Booked my appointment one day in advance, waited 10 minutes and then saw the doctor. Friendly staff/doctor and the place was nice inside and clean. Only had to wait a couple of days to hear back from the doctor from the lab results. Overall good first experience.

Dr. Kahani was fantastic with my son! Great bedside manner, very kind and gentle with him. Diagnosed his croup, prescribed the medication and gave me some very helpful hints to manage symptoms at home.

Miranda Turabian

First time there. Appt made 24 hrs ahead. I showed up 5 mins early for 4:15 appt. Waiting room empty. Three staff manning desk. Barely sat down when I was called in to triage. Explained my injury, X-Ray requisition printed, over to X-Ray across the hall, 3 mins there, back to office. Doc shows up 30 secs later, to examine, checks x-rays, diagnosis, prognosis and instructions, and on my way.
In and out in 14 minutes. Everyone was friendly, professional and efficient. Pretty remarkable, I’d say.

Kelly Parker

Took my child in and we saw Dr. Kabani, he is absolutely amazing with children and even took the time to engage with my other child who did not have an appointment. Both kids left with the biggest smiles . I wish we could have him as our regular pediatrician.

Amanda Todaro

This clinic is great having amazong doctors and X-ray right the next door. Dr. Katz did a great job consulting me this morning, provided recommendations and prescribtion for the wrist brace which helps a lot.

Oleg Yadroshnikov

I recently took my 15 year old daughter to the Minor Illness and Injury clinic because she injured her thumb. I was immediately impressed when we able to get an appointment for her the same day. The nurse that saw her was incredibly kind and seemed to ask all the right questions. My daughter was directed down the hall for an x-ray right away. She then came back and was seen by Dr. Kabani. He was amazing. Best bedside manner I have seen when dealing with a child. He was thorough and honest. From beginning to end we were there for 60 minutes. I would highly recommend the clinic for any minor injury. Beats waiting at the Children’s hospital for hours on end just to sit in a room waiting for another hour and then being rushed out without any real answers.
