Study: High blood pressure causes heart damage in young adults

A new study sheds light on the harmful effects of high blood pressure during puberty in young adults, which leads to premature heart damage. The study, published in the journal Pediatrics, showed that high blood pressure during childhood was linked to the risk of premature death in the mid-40s. The study was conducted on 1856 adolescents, including 1011 females, and the adolescents were 17 years old, and they were followed up for 7 years until the age of 24 years, and their high blood pressure was assessed, and their heart health was monitored. During the 7-year follow-up period, high blood pressure doubled in the adolescents, in addition to doubling the rate of heart damage among them, and the researchers observed high blood pressure that caused heart damage in both males and females. The study is new evidence of the harmful effect of high blood pressure on the heart of young people. It is worth noting that high blood pressure is a common condition that affects the arteries of the body, and it is also called hypertension, and in the event of high blood pressure, the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries is constantly very high, and this makes the heart work harder to pump blood, Which negatively affects heart health.
