Overweight children are more likely to have high blood pressure

Overweight children are more likely to have high blood pressure

A study published in the journal Hypertension revealed that overweight children are nearly three times more likely to develop high blood pressure compared to those who are at ideal weight. The study was led by researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine in the United States. The survey tracked 1,111 school-aged children for four years. Twice a year they measured blood pressure, height, and weight. The results showed that 14% of overweight children had high blood pressure, while only 5% of normal weight children had high blood pressure. The threat of the disease was therefore about three times higher in the first case.

Scholars believe that the study should arouse the attention of parents who only usually show some concern about their children's weight when they are diagnosed with obesity . Unfortunately, overweight is still not seen as a health risk.
