There are different causes of labile hypertension. These include factors such as anxiety attacks, too much consumption of caffeine, salt sensitivity, or stress overload. The causes might be different but the health implication of labile hypertension is the same in all cases- it poses a serious threat to the life of the individual. Hence, it is absolutely necessary to treat this condition.

treatment would involve medication for stress or anxiety
