High Blood Pressure

Adolescent boys are far more likely to suffer high blood pressure than girls in the same age group, thus setting the stage for other health problems such as hypertension as they get older, researchers reported on Monday.

Doctors say the reason remains a mystery but it could be hormonal. Men are usually more prone to hypertension than women.

But this is the first study to highlight gender differences in blood pressure among adolescents.
