Deaf People Considered High Risk of Hypertension

Recent studies have shown a potential for deaf individuals to be at a higher risk of developing hypertension.  Consult a blood pressure chart to interpret your BP readings.  There are quite a few available online but make sure that you only use one from a reputable source for instance a University or health service.  It may be that for some countries you’ll need to use a fast proxy to access these informational sites as for some reason health information often gets filtered from specific countries.


Blood pressure refers to the force exerted by the blood as it flows through the arteries. Most people have normal ranges of blood pressure. However, aging and other factors can cause the pressure to become elevated and remain high, which is very dangerous especially since high blood pressure does not present with visible symptoms in its earliest stages. Many people may have high blood pressure without knowing it. During this time, the condition could be wreaking havoc on the arteries as well as other important organs such as the heart and the kidneys. An initial diagnosis of high blood pressure can be made when a physician takes a person’s blood pressure using a sphygmomanometer and compares the readings to listed values in a blood pressure chart. The normal blood pressure range is 100-140mmHg systolic and 60-90mmHg diastolic.

Hypertension is a condition where a person’s blood pressure is unusually high, at ranges of 140-159mmHg systolic and 90-99mmHg diastolic. In conditions like these, the heart has to work harder in order to pump blood into the arteries. Hypertension comes in two forms: primary or those with no known causes and secondary, or high blood pressure arising from underlying medical conditions. Persons with high blood pressure are at a greater risk for heart attacks and kidney diseases.

Hypotension is a condition characterized by blood pressure that is below the normal range. Common symptoms include lightheadedness and fainting. It is commonly treated as a symptom rather than a disease, and is often indicative of shock, a condition that occurs when there is a drastic reduction in blood volume due to excessive bleeding. In healthy and fit people, low blood pressure is actually a sign of good health. However, it could also be a symptom of heart or endocrine disorders, as well as a side effect of some medications.
