High blood pressure symptoms: How often do you have epistaxis attacks? It could be a sign

At the end of the study, there was a higher number of attacks in patients with a history of hypertension.

There was also a “highly significant” positive correlation between the number of attacks of epistaxis and blood pressure readings.

The researchers concluded that the “recurrence of epistaxis was higher in hypertensive patients, and higher BP made the management of epistaxis more complex, indicating that epistaxis was more difficult to control in hypertensive patients”.

How to test for high blood pressure

The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked.

How to treat it

If you are diagnosed with high blood pressure, lifestyle changes are usually recommended to reduce your reading.

One of the most important dietary modifications you can make is to cut back on salt – salt raises your blood pressure.

“Don’t cook with salt or add any to your food at the table, and cut down on processed foods, which contain a lot of salt,” advises the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

For some people, losing weight is all they need to do to get their blood pressure down to a normal level, says the BHF.

You can lose weight by engaging in regular exercise and eating a healthy, balanced diet.
