    While Uncontrolled causes such as tumour of the adrenal, bending of a major artery and renal diseases are not so common but need to exclude as being the cause for hypertension, when no such cause is ascertained the increased blood pressure is called as Essential Hypertension? Essential Hypertension in young is generally an outcome of defective living habits- which mainly include improper diet, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol and smoking. Genetic factors also play a role in its early onset. High blood pressure is dangerous as it makes the heart work hard and contributes to hardening of the arteries. It increases the risk of heart disease and stroke .It can also lead to kidney and eye diseases.
