High Blood Pressure In Children Predicts Heart Disease In Parents

You may be thinking that I mixed up the words in the title. Yes, I did mean to say that children who have high blood pressure or high cholesterol have higher chances that their parents have diabetes or heart disease later on in life. Researchers found that 26 years after screening these children for health problems, 47% of parents of these same kids had suffered a heart attack, stroke, or underwent a procedure to unclog blocked arteries. Thirty-seven percent of parents developed diabetes.

Again, there’s not one mention of the likelihood that there’s any chance of obstructive sleep apnea.
