Obesity. Obesity is thought to be the number one risk factor for high blood pressure in chidren.

High blood pressure. The most common cause of high blood pressure is unknown. We check their kidneys to see if it functioning well. Also children graduate out of neonatal ICU wo get umbilical catheter has higher risk too.

If BP is consistently elevated, doc will rx med to lower.
