Hypertension is the term that describes high blood pressure. Blood pressure is calculated by the measurement that is forced against the artery walls when the heart is pumping blood throughout your whole body.
When blood pressure is given, there are two numbers and either of the two numbers can be high. It is measured in millimeters of mercury and written in this form, 110/20.
The top number is systolic pressure and is usually thought to be too high if it is over 140. The bottom number is diastolic pressure and it is considered to high if it over 90. A few causes of hypertension are how much salt is in your body, the condition of your nervous system and kidneys and different body hormones.
