The concept of childhood hypertension in paediatric practice and subsequent development of essential hypertension
in adult has changed significantly during the past two decades.
Known etiological factors for essential hypertension
include obesity, insulin resistance, stress, sedentary lifestyle, high alcohol intake, smoking, high salt intake, and aging.
The aetiology of essential hypertension
is complex, and by definition it has no obvious cause such as renal, adrenal or vascular disease.
Result: Of the 80 patients, 72(90%) were diagnosed with essential hypertension
and 8(10%) with primary hyperaldosteronism.
Material and Methods: One hundred and eighty patients diagnosed with essential hypertension
fulfilling the inclusion criteria were included in study using consecutive non-probability sampling after taking informed consent.

According to the results of many epidemiological studies, genetic components mediate the formation of essential hypertension
. Experimental studies in recent years have shown that the B2R gene has a protective role against the development of hypertension and cardiovascular pathology (45-47).
(EH), which accounts for 90% of hypertensive cases, is a polygenic and multifactorial disease caused by the interaction of genetic determinants and environmental factors [8, 9].
In addition to these animal data, studies conducted in patients with primary aldosteronism  or essential hypertension
 provided evidence that long-term exposure to inappropriately elevated aldosterone leads to a variety of organ sequelae occurring beyond what could be expected from the increase in blood pressure.
Therefore, we have compared ACE inhibitors either alone or in combination with statins in essential hypertension
in a tertiary care teaching hospital at Dehradun, Uttarakhand.
