This trial is evaluating whether FAM ACT will improve 2 primary outcomes and 32 secondary outcomes in patients with Hypertension. Measurement will happen over the course of Baseline vs. 6 months.
This trial requires 536 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. FAM ACT is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
Hypertension is a common problem in the pediatric emergency department. It is treated with a combination of medical and counseling treatments that vary widely between different institutions. The goals of treatment are to decrease the burden of cardiovascular disease and secondary morbidity and reduce the costs to the pediatric patients and families.
Hypertension is a multifactorial disorder. Factors such as diet, lifestyle and genetics all contribute to its development. In the long term, hypertension can be managed by reducing risk factors including stopping smoking, consuming a low salt diet and exercising regularly.\n
Many common signs of hypertension, such as increased pulse in the legs, are frequently noticed for the first time. Most patients, especially males, complain about a sense of heaviness and swelling in the legs. The following signs: dizziness, headaches, and the feeling of cold can be signs of hypertension. The patient must be asked whether the complaint is caused by increased pressure in the arteries supplying the head and neck.
The following are common symptoms and symptoms when hypertension is present. Fever: Fever can be present when the blood pressure is higher. Chest pain: Chest pain is usually felt during physical activity with higher blood pressure. Nausea, irritability and dizziness: These are common symptoms with high blood pressure. Increased pulse rate (tachycardia): Increased pulse rate is typical of hypertension. Weight loss: People with high blood pressure and kidney problems may experience changes in appetite and body weight. Dizziness: Dizziness is one of the typical symptoms at higher blood pressure. Flushed skin: Flushed skin is seen when blood pressure is too high. High blood glucose: High blood glucose can occur when the blood pressure is high.
Recent findings suggests that a substantial number of young adults are experiencing hypertension, although there is limited understanding of its cause or management. Health promotion efforts may be effective in preventing hypertension and its consequences.
Most people with hypertension can maintain lower blood pressures over time by combining one pharmacotherapy with another. These drugs can be taken regularly at the same time without any risk of side effects either during or after the treatment. For most patients with long-standing hypertension and adequate response to these agents, the long-term goal of lowering blood pressure with the least medications is to make the blood pressure low enough that the risks associated with high blood pressure in the absence of symptoms (e.g., stroke, heart attacks, and heart failure) are lowered to the level where preventive health care can be provided. These patients are said to have been cured of their hypertension.
Combination of famactin with other drugs tends to be used less than one would want. This may be for financial reasons, as the family planning fund expects a family to bear more than two children, making it a financial burden. The benefits of famactin, with and without another drug, are comparable. The main disadvantage is that famactin is very expensive. For a family with monthly expenditures and a small income, there is a significant financial burden.
It is reported there are no national guidelines for the diagnosis of hypertension and for management of that illness, there was the need for standardisation of diagnostic tests for hypertension, use of essential hypertension guideline, and regular follow up of hypertensive patients by their healthcare provider and self-monitoring of the patients. It is found from the study that hypertension is diagnosed earlier to adults from the age of 37 years and up to the age of 65 years.
Famact is an efficient, safe and versatile technique, which is more reliable than thiazides or vasodilating drugs (beta-blockers) because of its pharmacokinetic properties and, lastly, its low cost in developing countries.
Many clinical trials are not published in peer-reviewed journals, so it is not easy to find a systematic review of all of them. However, the ones we find are often small and of limited applicability, and we recommend a systematic systematic review of all of them.
Famact can have negative psychological effects and may interfere with people's personal relationships. It should be used with the advice of a health care professional, particularly about the timing and dosage frequency.
In addition to genetic and environmental factors, psychosocial factors may play a role in the onset of hypertension. Furthermore, a combination of genetic and environmental factors may influence hypertension.
