Hypertension and nose bleeds

My friend keeps getting them and I have urged her to go back to see her Gp. What can I say to explain why this is happening and what could happen if she doesn;t get seen by GP

Does she have a pre-existing diagnosis of hypertension? Even if she does the nose bleeds may well be coincidental. Most patients with nose bleeds don't have high blood pressure. I do agree either way that a simple check of her BP is still reasonable.

My daughter is 8yrs old. and she has been having regular nose bleeds out of the blue. A test performed at her school informed us that she has high blood pressure. Is there a way we can change her diet to lower the activity. Her father has sleep apnea, I have seizures and there is a family history of high blood pressure. Any information you can give will be greatly appreciated.
