High Blood Pressure
Underwriting the Silent Killer
Hypertension is more common than you think:
Hypertension is common – 25 percent of adults in the world have it to some degree. About 90-95 percent is primary or “essential”, meaning the cause is not known or identifiable. This is usually what is seen in clinical practice and underwriting. The rest is secondary, and has a known cause, such as kidney or endocrine disease, sleep apnea, or pregnancy.
