heartToday’s book excerpts . . .“Blood pressure is usually divided into two categories, designated primary and secondary. Primary hypertension is high blood pressure that is not due to another underlying disease.” . . . “These include cigarette smoking, stress, obesity, excessive use of stimulants such as coffee and tea, drug use, and high sodium intake.” . . . “When persistently elevated blood pressure arises as a result of another underlying health problem, such as hormonal abnormality or an inherited narrowing of the aorta, it is called secondary hypertension.” . . . “Secondary hypertension can also be caused by poor kidney function, which results in retention of excess sodium and fluid in the body.”
