    Yes the Dr's are right it's a life time thing so you need to register in a hospital for regular appointments & BP check & continue with your medication so pls go & see a Dr.

    Pls age is no barrier it's just more common in older people but young people get it also so if you've been diagnosed as been hypertensive especially by a Dr [which you should see to confirm] then you must continue to use your antihypertensive drugs daily or as the Dr prescribes
