Hypertension Information:

Hypertension is a cardiac condition in which the patient has high blood pressure. It is not to be confused with hypotension, in which a person has abnormally low blood pressure. There are two levels of hypertension: primary hypertension and secondary hypertension. Primary hypertension is high blood pressure for which no medical cause has been found. Secondary hypertension is caused by problems in the kidneys, arteries, heart, or endocrine system.

Treatments for hypertension include antihypertensive drugs, which are also shown to reduce the likelihood of dementia, heart failure, and mortality for heart disease.
