Question and answer
Q: Explain 5 factors that contribute to hypertension?
A: 5 factors that contribute to hypertension: 1. Age. The risk of high blood pressure increases as you age. Through early middle age, high blood pressure is more common in men. Women are more likely to develop high blood pressure after menopause. 2. Race. High blood pressure is particularly common among blacks, often developing at an earlier age than it does in whites. Serious complications, such as
stroke and heart attack, also are more common in blacks. 3. Family history. High blood pressure tends to run in families. 4. Being overweight or obese. The more you weigh, the more blood you need to supply oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. As the volume of blood circulated through your blood vessels increases, so does the pressure on your artery walls. 5. Not being physically active. People who are inactive tend to have higher heart rates. The higher your heart rate, the harder your heart must work with each contraction ? and the stronger the force on your arteries. Lack of physical activity also increases the risk of being overweight.
