This is not rare in the patients with hypertensive heart disease. The reason is simple. Since most patients with heart failure experience numerous changes in the electrical function of the heart. Cardiac arrhythmias here are instant and lethal. So some unknown cardiac function may take you life away.

Hi, Carolyn Scott Gettler:
Family members share genes, behaviors, lifestyles, and environments that can influence your health and  risk for disease. Heart disease can run in a family, and your risk for heart disease can increase based on your age, and your race, or ethnicity.

Genetic factors likely play some role in high blood pressure, heart disease, and other related conditions. However, it is also likely that people with a family history of heart disease share common environments and other potential factors that increase their risk.

The risk for heart disease can increase even more when heredity combines with unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking cigarettes and eating an unhealthy diet.

You should better visit the cardiology clinic every six months for follow-up.
