Today I took my son  (age 16) to the cardiologist  because he's been having high BP readings for about the past year. Everything appears to be ok with the heart but now they want him seen by a kidney specialist.  Anyone ever seen by one of them due to high BP readings?  Please let me know.

Thanks

Thank you!

The cardiologist said that if any of the passage ways to the kidney are blocked or restricted, that can cause high BP readings as well.  So for now we are going to increase activity more and cut back on salt.

I have a heart baby, She just turned 1. We have seen so many doctors, Cardio seems like all the time. We have seen a Kidney and Gastro specialist as well. My daughter's BP's are depending, sometimes High and sometimes low, but usually hers are high-- They don't think it's due to her heart, but they are still figuring it out.. They have a few different possibilities, maybe her weight gain, that's been a struggle for her she's only 13lbs and turned one on the 4th. (and since she was born)

SO glad to hear your son's heart is OKAY! Praise the lord! I too am sorry you have to see so many dr. I will be praying for you and your son!
