10 causes of high blood pressure

10 Damage of other organs

Many organs interfere with blood pressure level, and when one of them is affected, it may trigger secondary hypertension.

The thyroid gland and kidneys are considered important organs in the regulation of blood pressure, so people with acute or chronic kidney disease and hyperthyroidism usually develop secondary hypertension.


It is always important to undergo periodic medical checks to determine if the blood pressure is within the normal limits, less than 120 over 80 millimeters of mercury (120/80 mmHg). Having a healthy lifestyle and taking certain medication (if needed), can help maintain blood pressure levels.
