The term essential hypertension is used for high blood pressure when the cause can't really be identified. Its occurrence in a young woman is fairly uncommon.

There are a number of very excellent ones in your town Your doctor is proceeding in the right manner. It is important to know just what your hypertension workup included. It should have included an X-ray study using dye in your and a careful examination of the bladder region to be certain that you have no obstruction of the elimination of urine either at the kidney level or lower. The kidneys should be evaluated carefully for the presence of various kidney diseases. Rarely a person may have a tumor of the center of the small adrenal gland over the kidney that pours out excess adrenalin.-These tumors ordinarily are not malignant but they can cause persistently elevated blood pressure or attacks of high blood pressure. The tests for such tumors are chemical. Some authorities think that small overactive parts of the outer layer of the adrenal gland can also be responsible for elevated pressure. the people with curable causes of high blood pressure are few compared to those who have high blood pressure for unknown and incurable reasons. these remaining cases of essential hypertension can often be managed by a combination of different medicines. The right combination often varies for different and the doctor has the job of carefully evaluating the effects of medicines as he goes along. It is possible that you are not yet on the best combination for you any doctor will need time to evaluate each change in medicine or amount to arrive at the best program for you Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O.
