Possible Causes

Generally, High blood pressure can be related to:

  • Hypertension

    Hypertension is high blood pressure (increased pressure of blood against blood vessel walls). It's classified into primary and secondary. Primary is when the cause is unknown. Secondary is due to underlying conditions, such as kidney or thyroid disease. Risk factors include smoking, being overweight, lack of physical activity, unhealthy diet, excessive alcohol consumption, stress, genetics, etc. There are often no symptoms. If untreated, it can cause health problems, such as heart disease and stroke.

  • Subcortical Hemorrhage

    Subcortical hemorrhage refers to bleeding in the subcortical region of the brain. Causes include hereditary abnormalities of blood vessels in the brain, hypertension, and trauma. It is a type of stroke and is a life-threatening emergency that requires immediate medical attention.

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

    An autoimmune disease caused by the body's immune system attacking organs and cells. The exact cause is unclear, but risk factors include being female, childbearing age, and heredity. SLE may involve nearly every organ system in the body with a wide range of potential symptoms that often wax and wane over time.

  • Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

Related serious diseases

Sometimes, High blood pressure may be related to these serious diseases:

  • Gestational Hypertension

    RPC Reviewer comment - As of current guidelines PIH is not a separate condition. The current terminology is Gestational hypertension or Preeclampsia (both with and without severe features). Please let me know how you wish me to clarify this target page. High blood pressure can be a side effect of pregnancy. In some cases, this can be severe and harmful to both mother and child. The causes are varied, but risk is higher in obese, older, and first-time mothers.

  • Preeclampsia
  • HELLP Syndrome
  • Eclampsia
  • Placental Abruption
  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
