Diagnostic Error in Patient With hypertension (high blood pressure)
Hypertension is a “SILENT KILLER”. It is a common dangerous condition that majority of people both young and old can have for many years without knowing it, and can lead to various health problems especially heart related problems. Even without any sign or symptoms, damage to your blood vessels and heart continues.
Hypertension is one of the leading causes of cardiovascular disease, including heart failure, heart attack, stroke, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, pericardial disease and many others. Keeping your blood pressure under control is very important for preserving your health and to reducing the risk of potential effect of these dangerous conditions.
Now the BIG question is: How could patients who judiciously took their BP medications and maintained their blood pressure level still slump and die, some of these patients check their blood pressure regularly, they were also strictly on diet and exercise, they heeded to every advice giving to them by their health care providers yet they slumped and died. How do you explain that?
Well one of the main reasons people slump and die is cardiac arrest or heart attack, but they don’t just happen; they happen as a result of other heart disease that were not detected on time or were never detected at all, like Myocardial infarction, Rheumatic heart disease, Subaortal Stenosis, Hypertensive Heart Disease, Heart defect, etc.
As a matter of fact, we have diagnosed many patients with various heart and blood vessels diseases who were wrongly diagnosed of having only hypertension. Many people with hypertension are dying slowly of chronic heart related disease without knowing, and this is because they do all they could to keep their blood pressure under control, but unfortunately many have died as a result of it.
The fact is that, hypertension that requires the continued use of BP medications is caused by underlying health condition especially heart or blood vessels related disease. Therefore, before the continuation use of BP medications, it is important you consult with a doctor if possible a cardiologist to know type of test or scan to run base on your symptoms to detect the root cause of your hypertension.
At Vine Health we don’t use BP monitor as a yardstick to treat hypertension. We run a comprehensive blood circulatory system scan to detect exactly the root cause of it, that is we run comprehensive heart scan to know the state of the heart and comprehensive blood vessels to ascertain if there is an obstruction anywhere in the arteries or veins that is blocking the free flow of blood which causes sustained elevation of blood that leads to hypertension.
Don’t die from hypertension, rather than keep changing different types of BP medications that may have severe consequences on you. Why don’t you try something different? We have helped many people go of their BP medications. Yours won’t be different.
