Dear Neels
there are some tests that need to be done like cholesterol, kidney function tests, ECG etc. Most people's hypertension is called "essential" hypertension which means that it is mainly hereditary or without cause. In a small % of people hypertension is caused by narrowed renal arteries or abnormal hormone levels from the adrenal glands.
