Hypertension or high blood pressure catches you unawares, in the prime of your life, as there are no symptoms. Stress, excessive salt, stiffening and thickening of the artery walls, increased retention of water and salt in the kidneys, obesity are some of the causes of hypertension.
Even mild hypertension can be risky. You can control hypertension by changing your life-style and by medicines. The management of diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking is important. Excessive intake of salt has to be curbed. Restriction of salt in diet is effective in about sixty percent of people with hypertension.
