High blood pressure contributes to many diseases such as heart attacks and strokes, which are detrimental to human health. Some types of high blood pressure are caused by increases in hormones and cause considerable damage to many organs. These forms of high blood pressure are very difficult and expensive to diagnose early. We wish to investigate if there is a simple marker which in the blood that can tell us if a patient has this condition. This will help us to diagnose quickly, treat appropriately and avoid the detrimental effects.
