In brief: Testing

Testing for secondary hypertension would include a blood test.
, a urine test, an ultrasound of your kidneys, & an electrocardiogram (ECG). Once the underlying condition is effectively treated, secondary hypertension may decrease or even return to normal.
Lifestyle changes such as eating healthy foods, physical activity & maintaining a healthy weight may help. I wish you well with your health!
