Types of hypertension
- Primary or essential hypertension gradually develops over time, with no identifiable cause. It can be due to the natural process of aging where vessels become stiff and less elastic, increasing blood pressure.
- Secondary hypertension is caused by pre-existing condition or comorbidities. Kidney disease, adrenal gland tumors, congenital defects in vessels, medication, and drugs are pre-existing conditions that can cause hypertension.
Take note: Hypertension is diagnosed by a doctor by taking your blood pressure twice in a week with a few days interval. Hypertensive BP is 140/90 or greater, meaning 120/90 or 140/70 is still considered hypertensive.
