Hypertension or high blood pressure is considered a silent disease, which can exist for a long time without showing any symptoms. More than three million people in the US suffer from hypertension. This condition hastens the aging of the blood vessels and the heart, increasing the risk of stroke, heart disease, and atherosclerosis.
Advanced solutions in compounding pharmacy can help to address hypertension in many cases. The treatment provider will try to determine the underlying cause of the disease and formulate an appropriate solution. Patients who are unable to find relief with conventional medication for hypertension may be able to achieve successful results with compounded medications
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the percipient and terrific Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides compounding solutions for hypertension and various other medical conditions to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and in every state in this country.
What is Hypertension?
Hypertension occurs when blood pressure remains at an elevated rate, which can result in slow damage to the blood vessels and heart, even without any external symptoms. Blood pressure measures the amount of blood and the resistance of blood flow within the arteries. The narrowness of the arteries and the pressure applied to pump blood determines an individual’s blood pressure.
Thyroid Hormone and Hypertension
In many cases, it may be found that an imbalance of thyroid hormones is the underlying cause of hypertension. Thyroid hormones keep the arterial wall flexible and stabilize blood pressure. When thyroid hormones are inadequate, debris accumulates within the arterial walls, leading to swelling to occur around the debris. This compromises the flexibility of the arterial wall, leading to a rise in blood pressure.
In integrative pharmacy, customized treatments are available to restore the thyroid hormonal balance. A focus on improving the thyroid condition will eventually lead to improvement in hypertension in such cases where thyroid is the underlying cause of it. Bioidentical hormone therapies may be used as necessary to achieve better results.
Other Causes of Hypertension
Hypertension may be primarily caused due to family history of blood pressure or due to the specific lifestyle choices of a patient. In some cases, hypertension may be caused by another disease or certain types of medications. This is known as secondary disease, which requires investigation to determine the underlying cause and providing appropriate treatment for it.
Compounding pharmacy medications can help in treating the underlying causes, resulting in improvement of hypertension condition. Patients should choose an experienced treatment provider for compounded medications to achieve most effective outcomes and sustainable relief from hypertension.
Secondary causes of hypertension may include not only thyroid disorders, but also kidney related problems, adrenal gland problems, sleep apnea, and certain medications. Once the treatment provider has diagnosed the secondary cause of hypertension, it becomes easier to treat it with compounded medications.
A balanced diet, controlled sodium intake, and a focused fitness regimen are often combined with a compounding treatment plan to improve the condition of hypertension. AIP provides both traditional and modern compounding solutions, including online prescription refills, to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and anywhere in the continental US.
