What Is HTN?
HTN is another term for hypertension or high blood pressure as it is commonly known. This is a cardiac chronic medical condition by which the blood pressure is accelerated. There usually no other medical causes or ailments that provoke the existence of HTN. About 80% of the cases have no disease related causes.

As said earlier, there is really no clear medical reason for the existence of this condition. It can basically happen to anyone. Thus, for those who were not really prepared for it, they have suffered too much. In fact, there were those who have complications after experiencing HTN. As a result, they have had stroke, heart failure, aneurysm, and many more. HTN alone will not really cause death. Yet, if the person is already suffering from other ailments, their condition might just complicate.

There are so many signs and symptoms for HTN. Usually, it starts with dizziness, nausea, high fever, tension, difficulty of breathing, and many others.
