Were you looking for information about Hypertension? Hypertention is a common misspelling of hypertension.
 
Hypertension is a problem that occurs when the pressure within your blood vessels is too high. Over time, the strain this condition places on the heart and blood vessels can increase the risk of certain health problems, such as stroke, heart attack, kidney damage, and heart disease. Hypertension can only be diagnosed after taking several readings to find your average blood pressure. A combination of lifestyle changes and medications can help lower blood pressure in many people and get them closer to a normal blood pressure.
