About Betafit 25 mg Tablet

Betafit 25 mg Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called “Antihypertensive” used alone or together with other drugs to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), symptoms caused by an overactive thyroid gland, heart-related chest pain (angina), heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia). Besides this, it also helps in relieving symptoms of migraine-related headaches. High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a long-term force of the blood against the arteries that may lead to various heart diseases. It can damage the blood vessels (arteries) of the brain, heart, and kidneys if it continues for a long time, resulting in a stroke, heart failure or kidney failure. Lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack and heart-related chest pain (angina).

Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypertension: High blood pressure is a chronic condition when the blood pressure and the heart's workload is too high. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when blood supply to the heart is blocked). Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. High blood pressure can be diagnosed with the help of a blood pressure monitor or sphygmomanometer. Systolic pressure is the pressure when the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is when your heart is at the resting stage between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, it means the systolic pressure is 140 mm of Hg and, diastolic pressure is 90 mm of Hg. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.
