Study Finds Almost 1 in 5 Young Adults Has High Blood Pressure
Date:5/25/2011

s, principal investigator of the new study, said in an NIH news release. "None of these factors could account for the differences in estimates between the two surveys."

The investigators also pointed out that the proportion of young people who had been previously diagnosed with high blood pressure was similar in both studies: 9 percent for NHANES respondents and 11 percent for Add Health respondents.

Whatever the reason for the disparity, the new data "are a call to action," Steinbaum said. "We need to remind our younger population the critical nature of the role of diet and exercise in staying healthy, and that it must begin as early in their lives as possible or it will have negative effects on their health."

The American Heart Association has more on the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure.
