Cause Of High BP

Researchers have discovered a new cause of high blood pressure which could lead to major changes in managing the disease. In a study published in the journal JCI Insight, the researchers named the new cause as Connshing syndrome which is linked to the over production of the stress hormone cortisol.


In up to 10% of hypertensive patients, the over production of the adrenal hormone aldosterone — a condition known as primary aldosteronism or Conn syndrome — is the cause of disease. Patients are left untreated for cortisol excess.
