Why do I have hypertension?


#1

Hello,

Most commonly, hypertension is something that simply happens with age. In fact, more than half of people over the age of 60 have hypertension. Besides age, there are quite a few factors that can increase the blood pressure causing hypertension to develop early.
Blood pressure is controlled by many different systems in your body including your heart, arteries, veins, kidneys and brain. In any given person there is usually more than one system overactive contributing to increasing the blood pressure causing hypertension. When medication is needed to lower blood pressure, it frequently takes more than 1 medicine to lower blood pressure for this reason.We categorize hypertension as either primary (essential) or secondary.
