thank you.
high systolic blood pressure with normal diastolic pressure is also considered as having hypertension.
it is particularly important in pregnancy.
it is an integral part of pre eclampsia.
it should be treated properly.
the abnormal position of the kidney is congenital & in that case it is not the cause of hypertension.
