Lisinopril?: Unclear what "lupin" is. There is a lupin 10 which is an antihypertensive, lisinopril, but this is not likely to produce that much of a fall in blood pressure. See your doctor asap.

Non-medicines: Hypertension usually is known as a symptomless disease so it is not clear what symptoms you are trying to treat. If you are trying to treat high blood pressure, then it is through cardiovascular exercise, avoidance of dietary salt, and stress reduction.

It is not: Hypertension is not linked to pneumonia. Pneumonia does not cause hypertenison. If anything, patients seriously ill with pneumonia can actually have a low blood pressure and this can be a sign of the severity of pneumonia.

Dr. Alan Weder
Internal Medicine 46 years experience
Kidney artery: Kidneys are critical regulators of salt balance and bp, and when a partial renal arterial obstruction develops, the level of BP sensed by the kidney decreases. This trigger a number of processes, notably increased secretion of renin, which raise systemic bp, resulting in hypertension. Renovascular hypertension can sometimes be improved or even cured by relief of the obstruction.

None: Hypertension is so dangerous because it causes few if any symptoms. People can have heart and brain damage from many years of high blood pressure and not know it. BP should be routinely checked once a year.
