Hypertension (high blood pressure)
has been called “the silent killer” because it can be deadly and often goes undiagnosed. The danger of hypertension is the extra load placed on the heart, leading to complications like thickening of the heart muscle, heart failure, and kidney damage. Worst of all, it does all this silently, often without warning.

If you have recently been diagnosed with Hypertension and do not yet know the root cause, or if you believe you may have hypertension, the best thing to do is to start with a proper diagnosis. As hypertension is often caused by non-cardiac issues (e.g.: diet, chronic kidney disease
, diabetes), you should start with an Internist (a doctor specializing in Internal Medicine) who will help evaluate your condition, and then refer you to a specialist, if it is determined a specialist is necessary.
