Common causes of high blood pressure

As outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO) hypertension is a leading cause of premature death globally.

Simple lifestyle changes can minimise the risk of developing hypertension, such as eating a balanced diet and engaging in regular physical activity.

In some cases, high blood pressure can be associated with hereditary conditions, making it essential for people with a predisposition to be monitored regularly.

Certain health conditions can also cause a person to develop high blood pressure, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Anxiety
  • Alcoholism
  • Nicotine addiction


Food and beverages that act as stimulants in the body can also increase the risk of developing high blood pressure, such as coffee or other caffeinated beverages, soft drinks, alcohol and energy drinks. Reducing salt intake can also reduce the chance of acquiring hypertension later in life.
