Abstract

The etiology of hypertension is multifactorial and is strongly associated with behavioral and multiple genetic factors. Despite these non-modifiable risk factors, the role of chronic stress and psychosocial factors like impaired social support, anxiety, depression contributing to the development of hypertension must always be considered. There is compelling evidence suggesting the role of chronic stress and psychosocial factors in the development of hypertension. Further studies are to be undertaken to establish a causal relationship and the role of preventive measures stress induced hypertension. The clinician treating patients with hypertension must always consider the role of chronic stress and associated psychosocial factors.
