When menopause encounters hypertension, it teaches you to deal with it easily.

As for menopause, the more appropriate term is perimenopause, which refers to the physiological stage in which women transition from childbearing period to menopause and enter old age.

When women reach the age of 45-55, ovarian function gradually declines. Although many people pass menopause smoothly, some women are prone to emotional instability, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue under the influence of estrogen level decline, endocrine dysfunction and autonomic nerve disorder in the body, which is commonly called climacteric syndrome.

Apart from the above symptoms, climacteric women are also vulnerable to hypertension.

Before menopause, the prevalence rate of hypertension in women is lower than that in men of the same age, but after menopause, the incidence rate of hypertension in women will obviously increase.

Hypertension, as a cardiovascular disease that seriously endangers human health, will lead to damage to important organs such as heart, brain and kidney, so climacteric hypertension needs extensive attention.

Is what climacteric hypertension?

Menopausal hypertension includes climacteric syndrome hypertension and primary hypertension occurring during menopause.

Climacteric syndrome hypertension refers to hypertension, which is only one of the main symptoms of climacteric syndrome and belongs to symptomatic hypertension.

Menopausal women have increased blood pressure due to autonomic nerve dysfunction and vasomotor dysfunction. This hypertension may be temporary, and blood pressure may return to normal after menopause.

However, with the increase of age, vascular elasticity gradually decreases, during which cardiovascular problems such as atherosclerosis and essential hypertension also begin to appear. Therefore, the increase in blood pressure during this period may also be essential hypertension.

No matter whether it is hormone effect or essential hypertension, as long as the blood pressure rises, it will have a negative impact on the health of blood and cerebrovascular diseases. Therefore, when the blood pressure rises during menopause, don’t think it is good to pass menopause. You don’t care about or control the blood pressure rise, which is very dangerous.

Does menopause affect blood pressure in what?

Hypertension is not unique to climacteric women. Hypertension may occur at any age.

Menopause does affect blood pressure:

    During menopause, Due to changes in hormone levels, The distribution of body fat changes, Fat accumulates rapidly, It is easy to form abdominal obesity, This is one of the risk factors for hypertension. Before and after menopause, Fluctuations in sex hormone levels will lead to significantly faster heartbeat and easier contraction of peripheral blood vessels. Blood pressure is easy to rise. Endocrine disorders and autonomic nerve dysfunction brought about during menopause will lead to emotional instability, insomnia, dysphoria and other symptoms. So as to cause blood pressure fluctuation. Estrogen has a protective effect on cardiovascular system. During menopause, estrogen level drops sharply, and the protective effect on cardiovascular system also begins to weaken, which is prone to hypertension, coronary heart disease and other diseases.

Menopausal hypertension also needs treatment.

For patients with climacteric syndrome, the treatment first emphasizes the control of climacteric symptoms: lifestyle adjustment, appropriate physical activities and psychological adjustment all play an important role.

Drugs that supplement estrogen, regulate endocrine and improve sleep can also relieve climacteric symptoms, and hypertension will also be relieved.

Monitoring blood pressure is very important for climacteric women. During menopause, patients are extremely vulnerable to the influence of emotions and external environment, which makes blood pressure unstable and will aggravate the damage to cardiovascular system when the fluctuation is too large.

Necessary antihypertensive treatment, when necessary, climacteric hypertension patients should also take antihypertensive drugs under the guidance of specialists. And monitoring blood pressure, timely adjustment of drugs, can minimize the incidence and mortality of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.

After menopause, blood pressure monitoring is very important.

For symptomatic hypertension, hypertension can be recovered to a certain extent after smoothly passing through menopause and can be controlled without drugs.

Most climacteric hypertension patients, after menopause blood pressure is still difficult to return to normal, at this time, patients should pay attention to blood pressure monitoring, and according to the doctor’s advice to standardize medication. Only in this way can long-term health benefit.

Menopause is a normal physiological process. In the face of menopause, one should keep a heart of [smiling and watching flowers bloom and fall, sitting and watching clouds roll and cloud Shu], relieve one’s worries and do not have any fears and worries.

Hypertension is not terrible either. Through reasonable diet and life conditioning, psychological adjustment and correct treatment, the hypertension of most patients can be stably controlled and live happily and safely in old age.
