#FridayFacts Myth 3: “Once high blood pressure, always high blood pressure!” ..true or not?

That myth is not right. First of all, a distinction must be made between the two forms of high blood pressure. High blood pressure occurs as primary and secondary #hypertension (Latin technical term for high blood pressure). While the latter occurs as a result of other diseases, there is no specific underlying disease in primary hypertension. Correspondingly, the high blood pressure that occurs as a result of other illnesses can be lowered more easily by eliminating the organic causes. But even in the case of primary hypertension, the excessive blood pressure can be regulated with the help of antihypertensive drugs, more exercise, a healthy diet and less stress.
