Is my son aged 13 having hypertension if his BP is 90/56 ?
I was told that, when my son was a baby, he had a heart murmer and an extra beat at times . He had all the checks done and there is no sign of a hole in his heart. I checked his bp today (I have hypertension and bought the machine for myself) and his reading was 90/56. Should i be worried? He is of normal height + weight and leads an active life - cycling, snowboarding, skateboarding etc He is now aged 13.
Hi,thanks for query.Many children in childhood have heart murmur and no apparent reason is found.You should not worry about his blood pressure either.He seems to fine and not having complaints so please do not worry.bye.
