    High Blood Pressure

    Also called: Benign essential hypertension, Essential hypertension, HBP, HTN, Hypertension

    Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is called diastolic pressure.

    Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually the systolic number comes before or above the diastolic number. A reading of

    • 119/79 or lower is normal blood pressure
    • 140/90 or higher is high blood pressure
    • Between 120 and 139 for the top number, or between 80 and 89 for the bottom number is called prehypertension. Prehypertension means you may end up with high blood pressure, unless you take steps to prevent it.

    High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but it can cause serious problems such as stroke, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure.

    You can control high blood pressure through healthy lifestyle habits such as exercise and the DASH diet and taking medicines, if needed.

    Liver Diseases

    Also called: Hepatic disease

    Your liver is the largest organ inside your body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons.

    There are many kinds of liver diseases:

    • Diseases caused by viruses, such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C
    • Diseases caused by drugs, poisons, or too much alcohol. Examples include fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.
    • Liver cancer
    • Inherited diseases, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson disease

    Symptoms of liver disease can vary, but they often include swelling of the abdomen and legs, bruising easily, changes in the color of your stool and urine, and jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and eyes. Sometimes there are no symptoms. Tests such as imaging tests and liver function tests can check for liver damage and help to diagnose liver diseases.
