High Blood Pressure - symptoms and how to test
Hypertension refers to elevated blood pressure over the normal range. Based on what you do, your blood pressure will rise and fall during the day. A higher incidence of hypertension is associated with advancing age. Up until males reach the age of 64, high blood pressure is more prevalent among men. After age 65, women are at increased risk of developing high blood pressure. Your doctor may order further tests to confirm the diagnosis of high blood pressure and rule out other potential causes.
