Who doesn't know about hypertension? Hypertension or also known as high blood pressure is a condition that shows an increase in blood pressure on the arterial wall. We can find out the occurrence of hypertension by recognizing the symptoms, as well as by measuring blood pressure.Today many people suffer from hypertension. A basic health study known as Riskesdas (Basic Health Research) records more than 25 percent of Indonesia's population over the age of 18 suffer from hypertension. Research data also shows that hypertension is more common among women or men than men. Of course this data is only a little description of the real conditions in the community, given the limitations of medical personnel in reaching all Indonesian people. So, we need to know clearly about one of these deadly diseases.


Causes of Hypertension

Dari berbagai kasus yang muncul, saat ini belum dapat diketahui secara pasti penyebab hipertensi. Beberapa faktor berikut diduga dapat meningkatkan resiko kita mengalami hipertensi :
1. Age Factor
   The age of a person also influences the risk of suffering from hypertension. Usually the risk of suffering from this disease tends to increase with age. Well, if your age is increasing, you should be more careful in maintaining health.
2.Heredity
   In addition to age, heredity or congenital factors also cause hypertension. Congenital factors causing hypertension means that people who have family members with hypertension have a high risk of experiencing hypertension.
3.Smoking Habit
   Smoking habits also increase the risk of hypertension. In addition, smoking can also constrict arterial walls.
4.Obesity
   The cause of hypertension that we also need to pay attention to is obesity or being overweight. This is because the levels of oxygen and nutrients that flow through the blood are proportional to our body weight. Too much weight will require more oxygen and nutrients, so more blood volume is needed. This increase in blood volume causes increased blood pressure.
5.Lack of exercise
   Lack of exercise can also increase the risk of hypertension. People who are reluctant to exercise will usually have a faster heart rate. This more severe heart work also increases blood pressure.
   Thus 5 causes of hypertension that we need to be aware of. Congenital factors that cause hypertension seem to be more difficult to anticipate. So, there needs to be a shared awareness in the family in overcoming this deadly disease.
