Hi, it is unfortunately not that simple. Hypertension is a multifactorial disease, meaning there are a lot of agents that come into play to determine whether a person is prone to develop hypertension, like your family members having it, genetic predisposition, smoking etc. However, certain lifestyle modifications can help you keep it under control. Have a well balanced diet and avoid salty food. Exercise regularly, at least 30 minutes, 3-4 times a week. And try to keep stress under control. These may sound like very usual things but they go a long way in maintaining your overall health.
