Prediction of high blood pressure in young people : the limited usefulness of parental blood pressure data.
Blood pressure was measured in 864 young people aged 16-24 years, 8 years after both of their parents had their blood pressures measured as part of the screening phase of the Medical Research Council Mild Hypertension Trial.
Only 29% of offspring with a conventional « family history of hypertension », defined in terms of having at least one parent with a score in the top 10% of the distribution, had a blood pressure score in the top 20% after 8 years.
