The mean age of these children was 7.52 ± 2.48 years old. Overall, 95.4% of the case group and 85% of the control were in the normal range of diastolic blood pressure (P-value = 0.013) and 99.1% of the case group and 89.5% of the control group were in the normal range for systolic blood pressure (P-value = 0.007).
