7 (HealthDay News) Not enough evidence exists to recommend that children and teens be screened for high blood pressure, a U.S. government-appointed panel says. High blood pressure among American children and teens has been rising, in part due to the increase in childhood obesity. U.S.

Panel Rejects Blood Pressure Screening for Kids, Teens. Despite calls for routine testing, task force finds lack of evidence it would help. Please note: This article was published more than one year ago. The facts and conclusions presented may have since changed and may no longer be accurate. And “More information” links may no longer work.

In 2013, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the American Academy of Family Physicians cited insufficient evidence to recommend screening for high blood pressure in average-risk children. Too many kids and teens have high blood pressure (hypertension) and other risk factors for heart disease and stroke. Using the updated 2017 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Clinical Practice Guideline external icon, a CDC study shows that about 1 in 25 youth ages 12 to 19 have hypertension, and 1 in 10 has elevated blood pressure (previously called “prehypertension”).

Can children have high blood pressure? While a majority of the conversation about high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) centers on adults, children of all ages, from birth to teens, can have high blood pressure. Just like high blood pressure in adults, there are often no symptoms and early diagnosis and treatment are key..

The American Heart Association recommends that all children have. Normal blood pressure in teens lies beneath the 90th percentile. When the blood pressure lies between 90th and 95th percentile or if the blood pressure is greater than 120/80 but the percentile is below 90th for the age of the teenager, it is said to be prehypertension. BP, blood pressure * The 90th percentile is 1.28 SD, 95th percentile is 1.645 SD, and the 99th percentile is 2.326 SD over the mean. For research purposes, the standard deviations in Appendix Table B–1 allow one to compute BP Z-scores and percentiles for boys.

About 193,000 children and adolescents under 20 years of age in the United States had diabetes in 2015, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While most cases of type 1 diabetes are diagnosed in those under the age of 18, the signs and symptoms often develop rapidly and the diagnosis is often made in an emergency room setting.

In a cohort study of 14,187 children and adolescents aged 3 to 18 years who were observed at least three times for well-child care, only 26% of those with hypertension (n = 507) and 11% of those with prehypertension (n = 485) had the diagnosis documented in the electronic medical record.
