Children and High Blood Pressure

Hypertension in children and adolescents is a growing health problem. In children and adolescents who are three to 18 years old, the combined rate of prehypertension is 7 percent, while the rate in adolescents who are obese is greater than 30 percent in boys and 23 to 30 percent in girls. High blood pressure in childhood commonly leads to hypertension in adulthood, the leading cause of premature death around the world. Researchers believe obesity is to blame. In this regard, they studied a group of children aged from 8 years to 17 years od. They found those who showed an increased waist circumference of less than a half an inch raised the likelihood of high blood pressure by 10 percent. It also increased their chances of pre-high blood pressure by 5 percent. High blood pressure increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, and quite possibly early death! Parents listen up! It's time to stop this trend. We need to put our children on a proper exercise and nutrition plan.
