Abstract

EFFECT OF TYPES OF MEDICATIONS, PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES, AND DRINKING WATER ON CONTROLLING BLOOD PRESSURE IN HYPERTENSIVE PATIENTS

*Taher M. Abdelhameed, Baraa B. Osman and Malath T. Yousef

ABSTRACT

Background: Hypertension is a chronic disease that affects the lives of more than 30% of the population worldwide. Regulating blood pressure within the acceptable ranges is the key element to reduce the risks of collateral damages of hypertension on hypertensive people. The aim of the study: to survey the effect of types of hypertension medications, physical activities, water consumption on controlling blood pressure in hypertensive people. Material and Methods: - In this study, a questionnaire was carried on a total of 32 males and females aged 38 to 90 years. The effects of types of medications, performing daily physical activities, and consuming adequate amounts of water were examined on these patients. Results: Since the causes of hypertension is not known in the vast majority of cases (essential hypertension), medications such as ACEI that can give desirable results in controlling blood pressure for some patients were not effective for some other patients. Combining two or more types of medications could improve their effect on controlling blood pressure. Physical activity and regular exercise are very effective in reducing blood pressure and control it at a moderate level. Drinking adequate amounts of water also might help in controlling blood pressure. The results suggest that life style of hypertensive patients should include regular physical activities and drinking adequate amounts of water. Medications, on the other hand, are case specific where one type of medication is suitable and adequate for some patients and have small or no effect for some others. Furthermore, some patients need to take multiple medications in order to have the required effect. And some patients might be resistant to all types of medications.

Keywords: Hypertension, Age, Medications, Physical activities, Water consumption, Zawi.
