Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38-THE LETHBRIDQE Octobtr 30, 1974 Children, infants can suffer form of high blood pressure By LAWRENCE K. ALTMAN New York Times Service LOS ANGELES, Pediatricians have made the surprising discovery that children even infants a few months old can suffer a form of high blood pressure hitherto considered limited to adults. But the discovery has created an ethical dilemma for the physicians who must care for the young with high blood pressure, one of mankind's most common and destructive diseases. The dilemma focuses on the unanswered question of whether the disease or its therapy is more dangerous. Do the benefits of prescribing pills to prevent affected children from developing long term complications strokes, heart attacks, blindness and kidney damage as adults outweigh the risk that might result from years of taking such medications? Because of this problem, the decision to treat or withhold therapy is a controversy among the pediatricians. Doctors who treat children with high blood pressure said .in Intel-views that definitive answers to such a basic but thorny ques- tion could come only from long term studies. Yet many pediatricians said they felt inhibited from undertaking such investigations on ex- periments involving fetuses and children.

TERPSTRA, Proprietor) Phone 327-7660 adult forms of hypertension represents a new dimension of one of the nation's most serious public health problems. It also raises fun- damental questions about the natural history of hyperten- sion and whether the adult dis- ease might have its origins in childhood, or even the womb. "The myth that children don't have high blood pressure is being Dr. Ellin Lieberman, a leading expert on childhood hypertensions, said in an interview in her of- fice at children's hospital here. So far, high blood pressure cases have been1 detected in about one per cent of the children-who have been tested. Though the percentage is small, the health and life styles of tens of thousands of children are at stake. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is an insidious, painless disease that eventual- ly affects about one in seven Americans. Its cause is un- known. LADIES'WEAR Ladies'Shirts.

SUPER SPECIAL 71 Svnrtng 8.C, Afewrtt, Dear Ann Landers: Recent- ly you told at woman who was fearful of having all her teeth extracted (she was afraid den- tures would interfere with her love life) to "seek another opinion." May I submit that opinion? Dear Lady with the Rotten Teeth: I got my first partial plate at the age of sixteen. Most of my uppers had to be removed. The thought of it distressed me, but before long that partial plate changed my life. For the first time in years I smiled and laughed publicly without putting my -hand to my mouth to conceal my crooked, decayed teeth. At had a complete den- ture made and it was great. When a fellow I liked a lot said, "Pucker I did without fear that my dentures would slip. I am now happily married to a wonderful guy, but I kissed several sweeties before I made the final selec- tion. My dentures never gave me a moment's trouble. I want to tell the world that we've come a long way since George Washington and bis wooden choppers. Today a good dentist can fit you with beautiful, natural-looking teeth that will allow you to eat everything plus you'll look 100 per cent better and you'll be 200 per cent healthier A Witness Dear Wit: Thank you for a letter a great many concerned readers will be able to sink their teeth into. In fact, they'll eat it up. Dear Aon Landers: I violently disagree with your advice to "No. Baloney." I, too, have wretched, miserable parents and I decided to cut them out of my life and have nothing to do with them. It was a good decision. Why cater to people you intensely dislike and whose presence is distressing? Every man and woman who produce children are NOT parents. I disagree that children owe parents anything. You don't owe one damn thing to people who make your life hell. I have two children of my own and I am not a nut Unlike my neurotic mother, I have wonderful friends. I function well in the community and deal successfully with my neighbors, associates and my children. So my advice to "No you Baloney" is. "Right Get away from those people. Move miles from them. Build your own world of relationships as you want them, A lot of people will not understand what I am saying, but I understand Walked In Your Moccasin Dear Walked: Too bad yon and "Baloney" can't get together and swap stories about your "lousy" parents. You kids would have a ball. Go ahead and bet your gums from now till doomsday about how and "content" yon are, but yon know deep in your gats that you hve failed to deal successfully with a very im- portant problem so yon ran away from it. Running away may have been YOUR but the problem remains and my hunch isyou haven't seen the last of it. Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I spent the weekend with my mother-in-law. We left in a rush and I urunten- tionally took a towe! and washcloth tht belonged to her. They were almost identical to mine. This morning I received a very cool letter asking that I return her towel and washcloth. She expressed' "surprise that I would do such a thing. I am sick at heart. Should I tell my husband? Shocked Dear S.: Yes. Then phone your mother-in-law in his presence, explain the confu- sion and send her two towels and two own and your nearly identical ones Playmates Little Douglas Ray- mond, a mere 29 pounds romps with his 180- pound Great Dane in Chicago, enjoying the warm autumn weather.
