It would be helpful to have a few more details.. How old is your daughter? How high is her blood pressure? Was it measured at home? or in a doctor's office? How many different measurements were taken?

Elevated blood pressure, or hypertension, can be caused by many factors. The first step in addressing the hypertension, is obtaining an accurate diagnosis by making an appointment with here doctor.

If your daughter does have high blood pressure, lifestyle changes such as weight loss and a low salt diet can help.

A low pulse could be normal in conditioned athletes, or in certain individuals. A low pulse is generally not a problem unless it causes symptoms of fatigue, lightheadedness, dizzy spells, or episodes of passing out.
