There are various endocrine causes for the development of arterial hypertension. These include, for example, various diseases of the pituitary, (para-)thyroid and adrenal glands. If a benign hormone-producing tumor is the cause of hypertension, it is surgically removed.
As a result, hypertension usually disappears. However, hypertension is only 5% endocrine in origin. More often, symptoms occur when the adrenal gland produces too much aldosterone. However, this cannot always be treated surgically.
