High Blood Pressure In Childhood Could Signal Future Risk

Researchers also found links between weight and high blood pressure in adulthood: 59 percent of those with high blood pressure in adulthood were obese or overweight in childhood. The new findings are especially important, considering high blood pressure is actually increasing among U.S. kids . A recent study in the journal Hypertension showed that between 1999 and 2008, 19.2 percent of kids ages 8 to 17 in the U.S. had high blood pressure.

Hair Loss Is A Common Problem Among Women

So for many women, when they start to lose it, it has detrimental affect on their self esteem. Doctor Cherry says hair loss looks different in women. “Women have a different pattern of hair loss when they loose in a pattern. This is typically the central scalp that spares the front of the hair line. It can be harder to recognize because it doesn’t have the typical picture that a male would present with,” said Cherry. The technical term for female or male pattern balding is Androgenetic Alopecia.

Hair Loss – Home Treatment

This may be easier for women because inherited hair loss ( androgenetic alopecia ) causes a general thinning that is usually not as severe as it is in men. Hair sprays, dyes, and perms can help make the hair appear fuller. In women with inherited hair loss, hair care and the occasional use of grooming products, hair sprays, hair color, teasing, permanents, or frequent washing will not increase hair loss. But if your hair loss is caused by hair care, then perms and dyes may contribute to more hair loss. Recommended Related to Hair Loss See All Male Pattern Baldness Topics
