Lee Kaplan talk is critiqued in link above.

90% of hypertension is primary.  This means we don't know what causes it.
The remaining approximately 5-10% or less is secondary.  It has a specific cause.  In the office we make the usual blood tests to rule out the obvious secondary causes of high blood pressure and then we usually give a low dose combination ace inhibitor/diuretic to be taken for the patients lifetime.
