We does Micardis work?
The active substance Telmisartan acts on the blood pressure regulation system of the body, the so-called Renin-Angiotensin-aldosterone-System (RAAS). He docks instead of the body’s Angiotensin II to the Angiotensin II Receptor. As a result, the body’s own blood will prevent the pressure rising effect of the Angiotensin-II.
Normally, the vessels will be provided by the action of Angiotensin II, which leads to an increase in blood pressure. In addition, Angiotensin II causes the electrolytes to be kept sodium and potassium in the body and not excreted. As a result, more water remains in the body, which in turn leads to an increase in blood pressure. Angiotensin II also in the tissue, the cells multiply and the thrombocytes (blood platelets) to accumulate, which increases the risk for heart attacks or strokes.
Telmisartan in Micardis blocks the effect of Angiotensin II on the Angiotensin II Receptor and has a relatively long-lasting effect. It thus causes primarily a dilatation of the vessels and a drop in blood pressure. The active ingredient has but platelets also have an impact on electrolyte excretion and on the accumulation of the blood.
