In young age you are energetic, full of glamour and perfection, but with time they all fade away. What were all beautiful and filled with colors change into gray. This is all but nature’s law and you should happily accept this changing phase in your lifetime. As you grow old your body gets easily susceptible to various physical ailments - you need to go regularly to the doctor; do various tests and then undergo treatments and all these have a cost. To protect your family from the costs of funeral expenses in old age you should get a burial policy.

High Blood Pressure


Hypertension is a termed used for high blood pressure. There are two numbers with the first number representing the systolic pressure (normal less than 140) and the second number the diastolic (normal if less than 90). Hypertension usually causes no symptoms but is a major risk factor for a number of serious long term problems including heart attacks, stroke and kidney failure.


Usually none. If the level is very high the following may be experienced: chest pain, headache, shortness of breath, visual complaints, confusion.


Treatment includes salt restriction, loss of excess weight, exercise and, in many cases, medications to reduce the pressure.


Sometimes, despite dietary and lifestyle changes, medications are still needed to control blood pressure and to prevent damage to organs. These medications may be used alone, but most people with hypertension are on at least two different blood pressure medications. Some medications work better in one person than another depending on other medical conditions.

Medications used to treat hypertension include:

Thiazide type diuretics: These medications are generally tried first. They are specifically used to treat high blood pressure in people with heart failure and chronic kidney disease. Side effects include low potassium levels (hypokalemia).

Examples: hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide), chlorthalidone (Thalitone)

Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) or angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB): ACE inhibitors stop the creation of angiotensin, a hormone that causes blood vessels to narrow. With ACE inhibitors, there is less active angiotensin, and blood pressure decreases. ARBs block the body’s response to angiotension, which causes your arteries to widen and your blood pressure to go down. These medications are used to treat high blood pressure in people with heart failure, left ventricular dysfunction, a history of heart attack, diabetes and chronic kidney disease (with protein in urine). Side effects include cough, dizziness, high potassium levels (hyperkalemia), muscle pain and decreased kidney function.

Examples: lisonopril (Prinivil), losartan (Cozaar)

Calcium channel blockers (non-dihydropyridine): These medications stop calcium from entering the blood vessels and the muscle cells of the heart. Blood vessels then relax, causing blood pressure to go down. This medication is used to treat high blood pressure in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. Side effects include swollen hands or feet, headache, dizziness, flushing and heart palpitations.

Example: amlodipine (Norvasc), dihydropyridine

Beta blockers: This medication causes your heart to beat slower and less forcefully. Your heart then pumps a smaller amount of blood through your blood vessels, causing your blood pressure to go down. This medication is used to treat high blood pressure in people who have heart failure, asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction, atrial fibrillation, angina and recent heart attacks. Side effects include low heart rate (bradycardia), dizziness, fatigue and low blood pressure.

Example: atenolol (Tenormin)

When a person has only high blood pressure and no other conditions, the three main classes (kinds) of medications used to treat hypertension are thiazide diuretics, long-acting calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). All of these medications have been shown to be equally effective.

If you have no medical conditions other than high blood pressure, beta-blockers are not commonly used to start treatment, since they may have adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, especially in older patients.

If initial treatment is not working, your doctor may increase the dose of the medication he or she has already prescribed you, and/or he or she may add a different kind (class) of medication.
Over time, organs affected by high blood pressure generally decrease in function. When organs don’t work as well as they used to, doctors will usually prescribe additional medication.

If you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure and looking for a final expense life insurance policy, we will find you first day coverage at the lowest rate.
