Reasons for high blood pressure
The majority of blood pressures are idiopathic, which means that 90% of them have no clear cause.
However, the majority has a hereditary component. Therefore, if your parents or siblings have high blood pressure, then it is more than likely you can high blood pressure, too.
Some wrong lifestyle choices such as stress or high salt intake can cause high blood pressure.
Sometimes, it can be due to other causes such as hormonal problems like a pheochromocytoma, Crohn’s disease, a contraceptive pill or blockages of the renal arteries.
