Secondary Hypertension - Another condition is the trigger!

• The hypertension which is caused by an secondary cause is called Secondary hypertension.

• If you have healthy life style and still are having hypertension, or maybe you have doubts about the reason for the hypertension, maybe is the time to take exams with your personal doctor. It is possible to have what is called secondary hypertension where the reason is to some secondary disease.

• It can be nothing like to much eating liquorice( licorice), or white coat hypertension, or it also can be a side effect of many medications (where is needed precautions), but can be also something much serious like kidney disease or tumors (adrenal adenoma or pheochromocytoma.
