[Clinical study on conducting physical exercise in lowering blood pressure of hypertensive patients and influencing their endocrine hormones].
ABSTRACT To explore the mechanism of conducting physical exercise to lower blood pressure of hypertensive patients, relieve their symptoms and influence the cardiovascular endocrine hormone.
One hundred and twenty-five patients with II or III stage hypertension were divided into the experimental group and the control group and observed. The comparison of conditions before and after treatment, and between experimental and control groups was carried out.
The effect in lowering blood pressure and relieving symptoms in the experimental group were obviously better than those in the control group, P < 0.05. Angiotensin-II (AT-II) level much reduced after the exercise experiment, P < 0.05. Peripheral renin activity (PRA) level had a tendency of reduction, but atrial natriuetic factor (ANF) and 6-keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha (6-k-PGF1 alpha) showed a tendency of increasing.
Physical exercise combined with medical treatment could control the symptoms of hypertensive patients, in some of them could gradually using the way of doing physical exercise to replace the hypotensive medicament, the effect of the combined treatment can be obtained within a month. The change of cardiovascular endocrine hormone indicated that the physical exercise can be helpful in lowering blood pressure and improving blood circulation in hypertensive patients.
