High systolic blood pressure termed as Essential hypertension usually runs in the family, which usually starts in 20s age group. But if high BP has come in 40s and 50s it is probably due to lifestyle and poor diet habits. Not to worry. Encourage and cultivate good habits like fresh fruits vegetables in the diet, daily exercise, no junk food in your child and hypertension can be prevented.
