My son is 26, fit, plays sport, eats healthy food - lots of fruit, vegetables etc but when playing around with a blood pressure monitor the other day, we found his blood pressure 143/78 and pulse of 50 . Measured again and basically same results. I have read various articles on the internet since then and all of them talk about high blood pressure in young adults occurring due to bad diet, lack of exercise etc which does not fit. Also articles saying that blood pressure medicine not likely to be efffective on young adults.
How serious is this situation and what should he do?
