Due to the difference in drug treatment strategies between the “2020 International Society of Hypertension Global Hypertension Practice Guidelines” and the “Expert consensus on the management of hypertension in the young and middle-aged Chinese population” consensus, I made a hypothesis on hypertension mechanisms. The mechanisms behind hypertension differ between age groups. For instance, the sympathetic nervous system might play more important role young and middle-aged hypertensive patients. In this commentary, hypertension mechanisms were classified into initiation and secondary mechanisms. Thereafter, their quantity-effect relationship was speculated. These helped deepen the understanding of the time association and the crosstalk mechanisms.
