Poor Skeletal Growth Predicts Risk of High Blood Pressure among Adolescent Boys in India

Poor Skeletal Growth Predicts Risk of High Blood Pressure among Adolescent Boys in India

Background: It is believed that poor height may be associated with blood pressure through socially patterned factors such as early nutrition, infection and stress. We therefore examined association of skeletal measures with high blood pressure among adolescents. Subjects/Methods: Adolescent boys (age 9-16 yr) from low socio economic (n=932) and high socio economic (n =1146) classes (LSE & HSE respectively) were studied for anthropometry and blood pressure.
