hypertension information

Hypertension is an elevation in blood pressure beyond normal levels, indicating increased cardiac (heart muscle) contraction, increased vascular resistance, or both.  It is often also called High Blood Pressure, HTN, HBP, or more grimly as “the silent killer”, as the condition often causes few subjective symptoms before becoming fatal. When untreated, hypertension can lead to an increased risk for strokes, heart attacks and kidney failure. Primary hypertension accounts for the majority of cases where the exact cause of the condition is unknown. Secondary hypertension is caused by a variety of disorders, which include kidney diseases, endocrine disorders, cancer, and drug side effects.
