High blood pressure can occur with age due to hardening of arteries, weight, smoking, alcohol, drugs, cholesterol, diabetes, as well as problems with your kidney and some structural heart concerns.
Your age, your response to medication, your medical history and family history will help your physician decide if you need further testing.
