I am hypertensive female, obese , enlarged heart, ocular pressure.
My daughter who is 13 years old, is about 5'3" and weighs about 120 pounds, about the right weight for her height. When I measure d her BP with the digital BP monitor it was 108/69. What should the BP be for a young girl that age. Is this too high for a 13 year old girl. I have a lot of problems and I do not want her to get a high BP at such a young age.
I'm finding it very difficult to get her to eat less starchy/ fatty foods. I would like to take your advice and show it to her.
I would like to know what the long term effects are for a child having to take Procardia and Atenolol for the rest of his life for hypertension. He is now 8 and has been on these medications since age 4.
