High Blood Pressure, Low Salt Recipes, Low Sodium Recipes

What Is High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)?

low salt recipes, low sodium recipes, recipes to reduce blood pressure. We all regularly use the words ‘blood pressure’ when we feel even slightly ill, without really understanding what they mean. Blood pressure (B.P) is merely the pressure exerted on blood vessels by circulating blood due to the rhythmic beating (contraction and relaxation) of the heart. That means normal blood pressure is not something to be worried about – if your heart is beating your blood will exert pressure on the blood vessels.

What is a cause for worry is when a person has high blood pressure (or hypertension). In such a case his heart has to exert more force to pump almost the same quantity of blood within the same time. The two parameters for this are Systolic B.P, which is the pressure exerted during the contraction of the heart, and is always high; and Diastolic B.P, which is the pressure exerted during the relaxation of the heart, and is comparatively low. Normal blood pressure readings are less than 120 (high end) and over 80 (low end) (120/80). High blood pressure in an adult is defined as blood pressure equal to or greater than 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or equal to or greater than 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure.

High blood pressure or hypertension is more and more prevalent these days, especially among younger people. Apart from stress and obesity, one of the reasons for this is excessive sodium and salt intake. Most people find it difficult to limit the amount of salt in their cooking, thinking it will affect the taste of their favourite dishes.

How to measure salt levels in your recipes

The low blood pressure recipes in this section have been designed to use minimum salt yet retaining its taste and flavour. In most of the recipes we have measured and used the minimum amount of salt required to make a dish appetizing, however you can decrease or increase the salt according to the daily sodium limit prescribed to you. However in other recipes, you can follow a thumb rule – 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon of salt for a serving of 4. When salt to taste is mentioned in the recipe, then follow the above guideline of salt usage.

Levels of High Blood Pressure

The easiest and most reliable way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have your B.P checked regularly. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mm Hg). The average ideal B.P levels are 120/80 for young people, and 140/90 for older people. Levels equal to or higher than these indicate that you may be suffering from mild, moderate or severe B.P. It is very important to initiate the right treatment once you discover what level of high B.P you suffer from.

Level
of
Severity
Systolic B.P Diastolic B.P TREATMENT
Mild B.P (most
commonly
occurring
stage)
140-160 90-100 Canbe easily brought back to normal with some life style management,
diet modification and proper medication.

Moderate B.P -
progre-ssive stage and
predis-poses
one to several other compli-cations

like heart
disease and diabetes

160-200 100-120

Should undergo regular blood pressure checks, take required medication, reduce weight, restrict sodium intake,

and make appropriate lifestyle
modifications.

Severe B.P (highest risk stage) Above 200 Above 120

Once a person’s B.P reaches this level, it is very difficult to bring it back to normal. A person with such high B.P must be very cautious about medications, and maintain the right sodium and potassium ratio in his diet. Lifestyle modifications are also required.
