In brief: Uncontrolled hyperte

The most common cause is non compliance with prescribed treatment due to side effects, not able to afford meds and just ignoring the condition as it has no symptoms in most cases.
Other causes are renal artery stenosis, hyperaldosteronism.Excessive salt intake, nonsteroidal drug use and other over the counter drugs, obstructive sleep apnea and chronic kidney disease.
