LESS OBVIOUS CAUSES OF HYPERTENSION

A 17-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital with overpowering headaches, irritability, and heavy sweating, and he was found to have severe, life-threatening hypertension (200/130 mm Hg). After a full panel of tests was taken, including urine screening and blood analysis, it was discovered that the boy was harboring dangerously high levels of mercury. Luckily, it was possible to remove this heavy metal from the boy’s body, especially since it had not yet settled into his bones. Physicians immediately gave him several courses of intravenous chelation treatments, which effectively cleared out most of the mercury. His symptoms gradually subsided, and his blood pressure normalized after two months of treatment.
Obesity, dietary indiscretions, inactivity, smoking, excess alcohol, stress – these are the causes most commonly associated with hypertension. However, there are other, less evident determinants that may also increase blood pressure, even in people with none of the primary risk factors for hypertension. Many of these more subtle risk factors, including certain drugs and environmental toxins, are avoidable; it’s just that few people know they are implicated in hypertension. Others, such as age, race, and sex, are beyond your control. However, it is important that you be aware of these “uncontrollable” risk factors, for if any of them apply to you, it simply means that you need to be more vigilant in following the prevention and treatment program for reversing hypertension.
