Stage II type of Hypertension

Hypertension is defined as systolic BP above 140 mm Hg or diastolic BP above 90 mm Hg. In Stage II type of Hypertension, the Systolic Pressure is greater than 160 mm Hg or the Diastolic Pressure greater than 100 mm Hg.

For this category of patients, High Blood Pressure Medication, a Diuretic and an ACE Inhibitor is recommended. The two drug formula works faster and keeps blood pressure in control.

In this category, other High Blood Pressure Medications include Beta Blockers, CCBs and Angiotensin II receptor blockers.

Patients with stage 2 hypertension should begin diet and lifestyle changes. Lifestyle changes are a first line weapon in the fight against high blood pressure.

Rather than making a single change, a combination of behavioral changes including losing weight eating heart-hearty foods, reducing sodium, and exercise more, yields the best result.
