Hypertension in Young adults

Hypertension in Young Adults

It’s very saddening to see young mothers presenting with kidney failure some of them requiring dialysis in their 30”s for a simple reason that they did not seek appropriate medical advice for their High blood pressure

It’s not uncommon to see young adults, 20-40 years of age present with High Blood pressure

High Blood pressure at this age is most commonly due to other causes like kidney problems, hormonal imbalances, heart related issues, obesity, excess alcohol intake.
