Characteristics of Hypertension Diagnosis
Perhaps, by the time when the procedure of diagnosis is confirmed, then the next step is to determine whether there is a serious damage to the organs infected and which one of them or more could be damaged the most. So, it is important that we need to know or at least determine whether our hypertension is appeared to be the type of primary or secondary.

To start kick off the above topic, the typical procedure of performing diagnosis can be done through a complete evaluation which incorporates a patient's medical history, physical check-up, laboratory test, and other diagnostic method such as chest X-ray. When a health professional (in this case, a doctor) inquires some specified details of our medical history, it will be highly sensible to disclose those information candidly (particularly, if there is a change in our body weight, physical activity, alcohol consumption, or the use of tobacco). 

In addition, it is absolutely necessary that we need to mention as well if there is also the list of prescriptions given over the drugs that we may consume routinely, be it the herbal products or the sort of illegal drugs. By the way, there are some drug substances which are proven or found to have a side effect of raising our blood pressure contradictorily.

On the other hand, the results of other medical test can actually help us to perform a better diagnosis. The analysis of urine and blood test on a regular basis, for example, can represent a person's health condition. Additionally, any protein or blood appeared in the urine may indicate kidney damage whereas the level of glucose may illustrate diabetes.

Technically, such a blood test performed can specifically calculate the amount level of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, bicarbonate, glucose, cholesterol, urea nitrogen in which they are identified as the indicator of kidney functions. If let’s say that our doctor suspects that we have suffered from other conditions or damage in our organs, then there is no doubt that our doctor will perform further research or test procedure.

Actually, when we perform our medical test in form of exercise, it is designed to assess how the cardiovascular system in our body is responding to physical activity. The test monitors, for example, are used to display the electrical activity of our heart and blood pressure during the process of exercising like when we do pedaling on a bike/bicycle or walking on a treadmill. Unlike those physical exercises which are intended to assess the cardiovascular system in our body, the stress test on the other hand may help us to indicate problems which do not appear while we are resting. Therefore, in case if we have high blood pressure, then any information given from those tests should be prioritized on the first thought before we begin to do our regular exercise program.

Meanwhile, a variety of symptoms such as urinary tract infections, frequent urination, or pelvic pain towards the lower side of abdomen may indicate the problem of having a kidney damage. If a doctor happens to have heard the sound of rapid blood flow through his or her stethoscope in the pelvis, then this might be the signs of renal artery stenosis. After all, it might be frightening to say that we may have to undergo further diagnosis like the blood test in order to see whether our kidney problem is the one that causes us suffering from hypertension.
