Hypertension is a condition in which blood pressure is higher than normal. The normal blood pressure is 120 mmHg /80 mmHg. The age related variations in normal blood pressure exist. The upper figure is systolic pressure and the lower figure is diastolic pressure. Increase in diastolic pressure is considered more dangerous.

Diet plays a central role in all cases of hypertension - mild, moderate and severe.

Mild hypertension: If the diastolic pressure is 90 to 104 mmHg then the condition is mild hypertension. Mild hypertension can be controlled by dietary modifications only. Restriction of sodium itself is very effective in controlling mild hypertension. But how much restriction is required it is subjective and varies at individual level.

Moderate hypertension: If the diastolic pressure is 105 to 119 mmHg, the condition is known as moderate hypertension. In moderate cases suitable medication is also given in addition to a modified diet plan. In moderate cases total restriction of salt with or without restriction of intake of foodstuffs rich in sodium is also imposed.

Severe hypertension: If diastolic pressure is 120 to 130 mmHg and above, it is termed as severe hypertension. In severe cases also suitable medication is also given in addition to a modified diet and total restriction of salt with restriction of intake of foodstuffs rich in sodium.

The diet plans prescribed by Dr Ranjana are very effective in controlling high blood pressure and its complications.
