What kinds of treatments are available for high blood pressure? On yesterday's programs, I pointed out that nearly one in three Americans have high blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease, kidney failure and stroke. In an alarming trend, more and more young adults are at risk for high blood pressure. A recent study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, suggests that nearly 20% of people between the ages of 24 and 32 may have high blood pressure, which is much more than previously thought. This figure underlines the importance of having blood pressure checked regularly, even at a young age, since many young people with high blood pressure probably are not aware of their condition, since there are no obvious signs of high blood pressure.
