Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
is a systemic disease which has a multi-factorial causation. Genetic factors (family history of hypertension), increasing age, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical exercise, dietary habits, smoking
, etc. can all be causative factors.
So, though stress and lack of proper sleep could be contributory factors, it is not possible to say that they are the direct cause of your hypertension. Irrespective of the cause, I would suggest the following:
- take the appropriate medication which has been prescribed to you regularly
- reduce weight - eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly
- avoid excessive stress and try relaxation exercises.
Wish you all the best.
