A research study from Kyoto University in Japan revealed that people with high levels of stress hormones detected in their urine are more likely to develop high blood pressure over the next 6-7 years..
According to a report by time now news, in a study of more than 400 adults with normal blood pressure, those who had high levels of stress hormones detected in their urine were more likely to develop high blood pressure over the next 6-7 years, the results of the study were published in Hypertension Journal. Elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol have also been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke.
Studies have shown that cumulative exposure to daily stress and exposure to psychological trauma can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, and a growing body of research points to the relationship between mind, heart, and body, indicating that a person’s mind can positively or negatively affect cardiovascular health. and cardiovascular risk factors and risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease over time.
“The stress hormones norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine and cortisol can increase with stress from life events, work, relationships, financial matters, etc. Stress is a major contributing factor to the risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular events,” the study author said.
“Previous research has focused on the relationship between stress hormone levels and hypertension or cardiovascular events in patients with existing hypertension, however there have been no studies looking at adults without hypertension,” the researchers said.
“It is important to examine the impact of stress on adults in the general population because it provides new information about whether routine measurement of stress hormones needs to be considered to prevent hypertension and CVD events,” Inoue added.
