The risks of high blood pressure (hypertension) are serious in young men. But many young men don't get treatment or make lifestyle changes.
High blood pressure is nicknamed “the silent killer.” Its silence often leads to health conditions in teens and young adults — and are ignored by.
Mild elevations in blood pressure considered to be in the upper range of normal during young adulthood can lead to subclinical heart damage.
Young adults with mild high blood pressure, also known as prehypertension, are more likely to develop heart problems later in life.
A new study suggests screening younger adults now for high blood pressure, cholesterol, and other risk factors may help prevent stroke later.
