  • Secondary Hypertension

    Introduction: In most cases of high blood pressure (hypertension), there is no known cause. About 6% of the time, however, high blood pressure is caused by another condition or disease. When this happens, it is called secondary hypertension. Most of the conditions that cause secondary hypertension involve the overproduction of one of the body's hormones. High blood pressure may be a side effect of medication, such as hormonal contraceptives and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents.
