The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate hypertension in parents, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

Heredity is a predisposing factor, but the exact mechanism is unclear.  Environmental factors such as dietary sodium, obesity and stress seem to act only in genetically susceptible persons.

Need For Routine Preventative Health Measures

If you have a family history of high blood pressure, heart or kidney disease, diabetes or stroke, you should have your blood pressure tested annually.
