Hypertension or increased blood pressure over a long period is reason enough to visit a doctor and maintain a steady and regular follow up. Hypertension causes are many but the pathology lies in the vessel walls. Hypertension types: 1. Primary or essential hypertension 2. Secondary hypertension
Risk factors leading to hypertension are :
1. Kidney disease like nephritic syndrome
2. Atherosclerosis i.e. thickening of blood vessels
4. Liver disease
5. Heart disease
Hypertension causes as delineated above are systemic and not because of one particular system.
Hypertension symptoms are less validated in comparison to consecutive blood pressure recordings to confirm hypertension as diagnosis.
Chief complaints are :
2. High blood pressure on more than 3 consecutive readings
3. Blurred vision
4. Sleep apnea
