What Is Hypertension?

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a common condition that can put strain on your heart and lead to serious health problems. There are two major types of hypertension: primary and secondary. Primary hypertension develops over many years, sometimes with no identifiable cause. Secondary hypertension can occur quickly and is usually due to another medical condition or taking certain medications.
