Simply put, it is high blood pressure.

Being an adult is hard, there are no two ways about it. Bills to pay, demanding careers, and all the parental worries that accompany having kids. It takes its toll and can shoot your blood pressure through the roof on bad days.

But hypertension isn’t just caused by bad traffic and your neighbours playing their music too loud on a Sunday afternoon. You should keep an eye on the following as well:


  • Stress
  • Family history of high blood pressure
  • Your salt intake
  • Obesity
  • Over consumption of alcohol
  • Genetics
  • An unhealthy lifestyle
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Smoking
  • Sleep apnea
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Thyroid disorders
