High Blood Pressure Impact on Mental Health
There are many know physical health challenges that come with having high blood pressure HBP)– otherwise known as the ‘silent killer’. Unfortunately, what is not discussed often enough are the negative mental health aspects associated with HBP.
Mental Health Impact
A study of more than 1,300 people concluded that high blood pressure has a long-term negative effect on mental function and causes mental decline. When you combine the negative effects of HBP on your mental health with the emotional impact of carrying more weight than you’d like, the effects can be devastating to many.
Harmful side effects of high blood pressure medications impact the person taking the drugs, and in many cases, the side effects can impact your chances to be intimate with a partner which therefore impacts the relationship too.
The good news is that this same study shows that lowering your high blood pressure can reverse the negative impact on your mental function. One of the best ways to lower your blood pressure is to lose weight.
You definitely want help and support and you don’t have to fight this battle alone. We’d love to be that partner to help you beat high blood pressure and take control of your weight.
Can Losing Weight Help?
Weight loss and blood pressure often correlate with each other. In other words, often as people lose weight their blood pressure also lowers as a result.
According to the National Institutes of Health, “Losing even 10 pounds can lower your blood pressure—and losing weight has the biggest effect on those who are overweight and already have hypertension. … And being overweight or obese increases your chances of developing high blood cholesterol and diabetes—two more risk factors for heart disease.”
