Many citizens of Turkey and foreigners face a problem with blood pressure. Both high and low blood pressure require control. So, according to what does blood pressure rise?

What are the differences between high and blood pressure? It is curious about the treatment methods for blood pressure problems that we often encounter.

  • Normal: High blood pressure 12, low blood pressure 8.
  • High: High blood pressure is above 13.5, low blood pressure is above 8.5.
  • Low: Those with high blood pressure less than 10, low blood pressure less than 6.


In low blood pressure, it does not matter if the small blood pressure is low, but the small blood pressure is important.

There is a low blood pressure when the high blood pressure drops below 11. Low blood pressure is called hypotension in medical parlance.

Blood pressure drops during febrile illnesses, after massive hemorrhages, with disorders of the internal secretion gland, or during the recovery period after any illness. It also happens that blood pressure drops in some women during menstruation, or after excessive loss of sweat in the heat, or in irritable people. A constant low blood pressure can be a sign of an important disease.

In addition, anemia, heat, weakness, night insomnia cause low blood pressure.

A desire to sleep, dizziness, a feeling of being knocked off the floor, darkening in the eyes, fatigue, weakness, palpitations, forgetfulness, the appearance of luminous dots as if in the air, ringing in the ears (buzzing) are symptoms of low blood pressure.


Both high blood pressure and low blood pressure being more than normal indicate that blood pressure is rising. High blood pressure is called hypertension in medical parlance.

For the diagnosis of hypertension, it is enough that one of the large and small blood pressure levels is higher than normal. It is important that both high blood pressure and low blood pressure are higher than normal.

Although the causes of high blood pressure are unknown, obesity, not exercising, eating fatty foods, consuming too much salt, and smoking are among the risk factors. As you get older, your blood pressure also rises. High blood pressure is seen as a familial disorder. High blood pressure can also be caused by certain medications, such as kidney disease, hormonal disorders, excessive alcohol consumption, and birth control pills.

Headache, pain in the neck and head area or intensity of feelings, numbness, tingling, dizziness, shortness of breath, double or blurred vision, nasal bleeding and irregular heartbeat, are signs of the high blood pressure symptoms.
