By reducing their blood pressure to normal levels such as 120/80 (120 over 80), men will help reduce the risk of serious health problems such as stroke, heart disease, kidney disease or an aneurysm. Dr. Jeffrey Buch and Legacy Male Health Institute want to stress that men who do not monitor and control their blood pressure are also prone to suffer Erectile Dysfunction (ED), and the inability of a man to effectively perform sexually and impregnate his female partner.
A man’s blood pressure is measured in two numbers such as 120/80 (120 over 80). The figure on the top (120) symbolizes the pressure when the heart is pumping blood and its muscle is contracted, called the Systolic Pressure. The second number is called the Diastolic Pressure. When a male’s blood pressure increase to 140/90, he has developed hypertension or high blood pressure, and therefore must reduce that level.
Hypertension (high blood pressure), which is more prevalent in men than women, is also known as the “silent killer” because its symptoms are very subtle. Some men have the condition for years without even realizing it. According to a National Health and Nutrition Survey, only 44% of men who have high blood pressure get treated, while 61% of stricken women are treated.
Many people think that emotional stress is the sole contributor to hypertension, but men’s weight, and the diets that result in being overweight, are also a major factor. In fact, men who are overweight are more at risk for developing high blood pressure than those who are at or below their normal weight. A good exercise regimen combined with a healthy diet will help males lower their risk of high blood pressure.
In many cases, high blood pressure is notdiagnosed until the man has developed chronic poor eating habits. As a result, it can be difficult for some people to change their diet and eating habits.
