A new study finds many children may have high blood pressure and not know it.
Researchers studied electronic medical records from more than 14,000 children who had gone to the doctor for at least 3 regular check-ups.
Of the children who had symptoms of high blood pressure reported in their chart, only 1 in 4 were actually diagnosed with the condition.
Experts say doctors may not know the normal blood pressure levels children should have, or they may not have been aware of the child's previous blood pressure readings.
