Hypertension

Arterial hypertension is perhaps the disease most frequently diagnosed during an incidental visit to a general practitioner. Including measurement of arterial blood pressure as part of the routine medical check-up allows us to diagnose this insidious disease quickly. It is estimated that only one in three patients suffering from hypertension are aware of the fact. Of this group, only a further one in three takes medicine, and only one in three of those treated are treated effectively. Very often the first symptom of chronic hypertensive disease is a cerebral stroke. Sometimes this is the first signal for a patient that a disease that does not hurt may still require regular administration of drugs.

Through employing doctors with many years of clinical experience we know how to treat hypertension and coexisting diseases effectively. We are able to diagnose the so-called secondary hypertension, which seldom affects adults, but is one of the few forms of the disease that can be treated. What makes secondary hypertension special is that it is not a disease in itself but a symptom of a disease of another organ or system, e.g. the thyroid or adrenal gland.

During the course of treatment our personnel take into account not only the orders of the doctor, but also the degree of comfort in the life of the patient. This involves individualisation of the therapy being conducted and the choice of method, or set of drugs, achieving maximum benefit with a minimum of side effects. A medicine may have an assortment of side effects, which each doctor ought to be aware of and able to recognise and counteract effectively by a means safe for the patient.

THE ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICINES IS NOT EQUIVALENT TO HYPERTENSION TREATMENT. A THERAPY IS EFFECTIVE IF DAILY VALUES OF ARTERIAL BLOOD PRESSURE DO NOT EXCEED 140 / 90 (mmHg)
