Hypertension is now a problem that has hit many people in Germany, but has come in recent years another risk group that you would not have expected.
The high blood pressure risk group adolescents and children
A few years ago there was high blood pressure in this risk group children and adolescents are still under 3 percent.
However, the number of sufferers in this group is increased so drastically, that meanwhile over 8 percent of young people and children suffer from high blood pressure.
Of course, this means that teenagers and children are now more frequent Cardiovascular diseases get sick, and even if this Diseases can now be cured better, it is still so a trend that should not be underestimated. The risk of complications from hypertension also increases in adolescents and children.
For a long time it was true youth to be extremely unusual to suffer from high blood pressure or a consequent cardiovascular disease, but because of the increasingly widespread obesity, the better than obesity should be known, it is no longer uncommon for adolescents and children to become ill and to be exposed to increased risks.
Few adolescents have an illness than root cause, because, like most adults, there is hypertension. This means that adolescents and children suffer from high blood pressure without physical causes.
in the Normally in adolescents it is because they are overweight, that there is increased blood pressure (high blood pressure). Also factors like blood lipids or Diabetes mellitus – a sugar metabolism disorder – can play a role here.
We particularly recommend an immediate measure if the blood pressure is too high in adolescents with overweight F. X. Mayrkur, to quickly and healthily reduce blood pressure and obesity.
The consequences and risks of hypertension Adolescents and children and possible treatment options

As retaining symptoms too high blood pressure such as sleep disorders with the resulting tiredness, frequent a headache or chest pain.
In general got to every young person in this risk group from high blood pressure however, be assessed individually, because there are different, optimal blood pressure values depending on age, weight and height.
Newborns and babies have blood pressure values of about 75-85: 55-65 mmHg.
From around 3 years old the blood pressure values should be around 95:60 mmHg.
From 10 years on is 100-105: 60-65 mmHg in the green.
14 years and older blood pressure should be around values like 110: 70.
Adults have good values with blood pressure values around 130: 80 mmHg.
