Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a common condition that can increase the risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease. While many people with hypertension can manage their condition with lifestyle changes and medication, some cases may require specialized care in a hypertension clinic. Some of the conditions that may require referral to a hypertension clinic include:
When blood pressure remains high despite treatment with multiple medications, a hypertension clinic may be able to provide specialized care to manage this condition.
High blood pressure caused by an underlying medical condition, such as kidney disease or hormonal disorders, may require further evaluation and treatment in a hypertension clinic.
In cases of very high blood pressure (hypertensive crisis), immediate medical attention may be required to prevent serious complications. A hypertension clinic can provide specialized care for this condition.
Some women develop high blood pressure during pregnancy, which can increase the risk of complications for both the mother and baby. A hypertension clinic can provide specialized care for managing hypertension during pregnancy.
Coexisting medical conditions
People with hypertension who also have other medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or kidney disease may benefit from specialized care in a hypertension clinic to manage these conditions together.
A hypertension clinic can provide comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and monitoring for people with high blood pressure, and can help to prevent serious complications and improve overall health outcomes.

SRV Hospitals recommends the following treatment options for hypertension (high blood pressure) which involve lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes that can help lower blood pressure include:
Eating a healthy diet, such as the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products, and limits salt and saturated fat
Maintaining a healthy weight
Limiting alcohol consumption
Medications that may be prescribed to lower blood pressure include:
Diuretics, which help the body get rid of excess salt and water
ACE inhibitors, which relax and widen blood vessels
Beta blockers, which slow the heart rate and reduce the workload on the heart
Calcium channel blockers, which also relax and widen blood vessels
Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), which also relax and widen blood vessels
It’s important to note that hypertension is a chronic condition that typically requires long-term treatment and management. Your doctor at SRV Hospitals will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs and health status.
The underlying cause of hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, is often not clear, but certain lifestyle factors such as a sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, being overweight or obese, advancing age, and genetics may play a role in its development.
