what causes high blood pressure (100-180), in a 62 years old woman, of weight=127 ibs?

Genetics, arteries: Arteries stiffen with age but genes are a major factor. I know a black belt in tae kwon do who was a vegetarian, avoided salt, worked out all of the time--motivated by not wanting to have to take blood pressure pills--had to take them because his family was loaded with people with hypertension and he had the genes.
