Water is the source of life. Perhaps you know the effect of water on your body’s blood pressure, but blood vessels are like water pipes. Due to the “concentration” of blood, such as fat, cholesterol, etc., “rust” or “scaling” precipitates. Reasonable water replenishment is especially important for patients with hypertension .
If you have high blood pressure, and if the intake of water is insufficient, it will lead to blood concentration, the viscosity of the blood will increase, and the blood volume will be insufficient. These three conditions add up to the brain. The formation of blood clots . But drink as much as you can. So how do high blood pressure patients drink water?
Guidelines for drinking water in patients with hypertension
1, don’t drink too much water every day
Hypertensive patients should drink water scientifically and reasonably, replenish water reasonably, and drink a small amount of water. Too little drinking water can lead to insufficient blood volume, elevated blood drug concentration, and increased blood viscosity, which can easily lead to cerebral thrombosis. But some people don’t have as much water as possible. Excessive drinking of water, especially when taking too much salt at the same time, can cause water and sodium retention, which increases the burden on the heart and kidneys, and raises blood pressure.
2, the water temperature can not be overheated or too cold
If the water temperature is too high, it will easily cause damage to the mucosa of the digestive tract, accelerate blood circulation, and increase the burden on the heart. The too cold water is easy to cause the blood vessels of the gastrointestinal tract to be affected and contracted, and the reflection causes the contraction of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, resulting in insufficient blood supply to the heart and brain.
3. Pay attention to replenishing minerals when drinking water.
When you sweat a lot, you need to add appropriate salt and try not to drink pure water. Mineral water is rich in minerals, and the mineral content of tea is also rich, but it is best to drink tea and light tea.
Precautions for drinking water in patients with hypertension
In general, 9:00 am to 10:00 am is the peak time of hypertension. The reason is that most people have little drinking habits at night, but the body’s metabolism has not stopped. Moisture loses a lot from various channels such as the respiratory tract, skin, and urine, which reduces the body’s water, causes blood to concentrate, affects blood circulation, and causes dizziness , dizziness, and palpitations. In particular, the elderly are accompanied by high blood pressure and cerebral arteriosclerosis. Drinking too little water will increase blood viscosity and easily form cerebral thrombosis.
To avoid high blood pressure at 9 am, the most effective method is to replenish water in the morning, reduce blood viscosity, and prevent cerebral thrombosis and myocardial infarction. Under normal circumstances, for patients with hypertension, based on strict restrictions on sodium intake, drinking water should be 1500~2000 ml per day.
