Overweight and Blood Pressure
Lowering the Levels
Being overweight is always equated with different health complications. In view of this fact, it is important that you should get your blood pressure taken at the very least 2 years in order to prevent further complications. Complications related to high blood pressure includes damage to blood vessels, risk of heart disease, increasing the risk of heart attack, kidney failure and even stroke.
Testing your blood pressure only takes a few minutes. Your doctor will be able treat you as soon as you are diagnosed. Furthermore, you will also be given some helpful advice on lifestyle changes that you can follow. The following are helpful advices to help you deal with high blood pressure not only when you are overweight.
Smoking while being overweight means you are doubling the risk of developing health related issues therefore it is important that you try to quit smoking. For some people, this is easier said than done but when you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle you should put a stop on this unhealthy habit. What happens when you smoke? Your heart rate will increase as a result to the temporary increase in the blood pressure brought about by the constriction of your blood vessels. If you quit smoking, you will reverse the effects of smoking in your system.
Keeping your blood pressure checked regularly can be achieved through losing weight and leading an active lifestyle. Too much fat engulfing your heart will result to doubling the work load that your heart is currently facing. You will increase the risk of developing heart attack and stroke in the process. In this view alone, you will find that losing weight can help you increase the overall health of your circulatory system.
It is important that you limit the amount of alcohol that you are consuming. Alcohol consumption significantly increases blood pressure especially in people with the predisposing factors. Alcohol moderation should be practiced so that you will help your blood vessels function well thus delivering adequate amount of blood within your system. If you cannot totally quit drinking, then it is important that you moderate your intake to not more than 1 glass.
Reduce Salt Intake
The larger is your salt intake, the higher is your blood pressure. You will retain water along with salt intake. When your body retain too much water, it follows that your circulation will become overloaded with fluid. Your body will compensate this too much water by regulating the circulation thereby increasing your blood pressure. You can reverse this by reducing your salt intake. This is the reason why doctors sometimes prescribe low salt-low fat diet to their patients.
Stress is probably the most active aspect of our lives and it is one of the major causes of increased blood pressure especially when we allow it to affect us. Dealing with stress will help you achieve a well-balanced lifestyle. You should not let it build up inside you. You should develop some hobbies that will become an outlet where you can pour off daily stresses. Yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercises can help you relieve the stress from your system as well.
Follow Doctor’s Advice
The reason why other people with high blood pressure continue to suffer from the condition is because they are non-compliant to the doctor’s recommendation. It is important that you drink your medications on time and follow through with every last bit of advice that your doctor tells you. Doing so would help you increase your life span or perhaps even lead quality life ahead.

Weight Loss of Pounds For The Obese
If you are trying for weight loss, you should read this article. Some people need to lose a few pounds. But more and more Americans and those from the Western Societies are in the categories known as obese and morbidly obese. These people need to lose more than a few lbs. They need to lose pounds/kilos.
Some people have been able to have a significant weight loss through diet and exercise. This is made popular by television shows such as The Biggest Loser.
These kinds of people are able to change their attitude and lifestyle for life. They realize that they’re not on a temporary diet. To lose weight, they must change how they view their body and the food they eat.
This means they change the types and quantity of food they buy. They change the types of meals they eat. They change the size of the meals they eat. They change the frequency of the meals they eat.
And, they begin to exercise. Because they may be unable to do vigorous activity, they may have to start slowly. But, morbidly obese people should choose to exercise at least 30 minutes a day in whatever form is possible. As they develop strength and endurance, they should kick this up to 60 to 90 minutes.
But some people feel they cannot change their habits on their own. The weight loss is not realistic to these people with just diet and exercise. That is why Bariatric Surgery has become so popular in the last few years.
With this procedure, also known as Gastric Bypass, the stomach is made significantly smaller and the food bypasses part of the small intestine. People who have undergone this surgery find that they feel full with very small portions of food.
In a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (the most common kind), the stomach is made smaller by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical staples or a plastic band. The smaller stomach is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine.
Gastric bypass surgeries may cause what is known as the “dumping syndrome.” This happens when food moves too rapidly through the stomach and intestines. Symptoms include nausea, weakness, sweating, faintness, and sometimes diarrhea shortly after eating. These symptoms are much more severe when the person has eaten highly refined, high-calorie foods, especially sweets.
There are a number of weight loss conditions that have to be met before a doctor can perform Gastric bypass. For instance, the person has to have been obese for at least 5 years. He or she cannot have an ongoing problem with alcohol or have untreated depression. Most candidates are between 18 and 65 years old.
Most people who have gastric bypass surgery quickly begin to lose weight. They tend to continue to lose weight for up to 12 months. One study showed that most patients will lose about one-third of their original body weight in 1 to 4 years. However, if the recommended diet is not followed properly, the patient can begin to stretch their stomach and weight may be regained.
Strict lifestyle changes and gastric bypass surgery
are two options for quick weight loss pounds.
