Is Hypertension a medical disease or is it merely the symptom of another disease?

Hypertension is high blood pressure and what I need is documentation that it can or cannot be a disease on it's own.

    Its a disease brought on from an unhealthy life style…generally a bad diet …& lack of excercise……It can be reversed and erased, so dont let it get you down…its also a genetic trait…you may have gotten it through your mom or dad…Its more prominet in black and pacific rim people…
