Higher Blood Pressure After Premature Birth

Published tisdag 22 november 2005 kl 11.41
Karolinska Institute

A new Swedish study indicates that blood pressure in young men is higher in those who were born prematurely.

Writing in “Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association”, researchers at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute say further studies are needed to see if this holds true for women.

The findings were based on a study of more than 329,000 Swedish men born between 1973 and 1981, who had their blood pressure measurements recorded 20 years later when they were conscripted for military service.
