In brief: Gest. Hypertension
Since people who have gestational hypertension are more likely to get essential hypertension, then any person who is destined to get hypertension are at risk.
A hx of this problem in a prior pregnancy, your first pregnancy, teen pregnancy and older age pregnancy, twins, obesity, and women with diabetes are your largest risk factors for this problem.
