Hypertension Causes & Treatment

What Is Hypertension?

Hypertension is the condition commonly known as high blood pressure. It occurs due to pressure or force rising inside the artery walls. High blood pressure is when the arteries are narrow, and your heart is pumping more blood. High blood pressure causes thousands of deaths every year. It is mostly due to stroke, heart attack, heart failure and kidney disease.

What Are High Blood Pressure Causes

People can have increased blood pressure for many reasons. Many adults develop high BP slowly over many years for unknown reasons. This condition is termed as primary (or essential) hypertension.

If the reason for high BP is known, the condition is termed as secondary hypertension. Secondary hyper tension usually happens more quickly than primary and causes higher BP.

The center also offers expert care for patients with secondary hyper tension. This is high blood pressure caused by another medical condition or diseases such as

  • Kidney disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Tumours in adrenal glands
  • Congenital blood vessel problems
  • Prescription medications including decongestants and birth control pills
  • Over-the-counter medicines like cold and pain medicines
  • Street drugs like amphetamines and cocaine
  • Alcoholism or drinking too much
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
