Can a 15 year old get heart problems?
Can a 15 year old boy get serious heart problems because of their diet? i.e eating a lot of junk food like crisps and fizzy drinks quite often?
Additional Details
i'm actually really skinny, but that runs in the family. however i would consider myself unhealthy, i eat a lot of junk food :P

I doubt you can "get" heart problems at 15. He probably has a long history of diabetes and/or bad cholesterol in his family, which is the biggest factor of all. The junk food just contributes, and can possibly cause his heart to go over the edge. He needs to get a life, exercise, and live life.

If it concerns you deary ... see the doctor so they can do the tests or whatever it was they were monitoring.

It's a common tendency for us humans to not consult a professional when it comes to our health ... so while you're young ... get yourself acquainted with your GP and get used to seeing the doctor when you have real concerns for your well-being.

From what I know (studying nursing) ... normal heart rate for a human is 60-100 bpm (beats per minute) ... and that's when your heart is rested ... not coming from exercise or doing anything that will make your heart race.
It's normal for your heart rate to spike up during or straight after you've done some activity ... but to how high - I wouldn't know. But as I said, I've only been told to take someone's heart rate/pulse when at rest ... because the reading will be more accurate if to notice any irregularity.

But you know ... it's good to go to the doctor every once in a while and check your vital signs and get your blood pressure and blood tested etc.

You can have heart problems from birth. But I'm assuming you're talking about Heart issues due to being overweight. And the answer is yes. You need to maintain a healthy diet, and have plenty of cardiovascular exercise (running, things like that, basically getting your blood flowing). You need to start now before the problem escalates. Better sooner than later.

Good luck!


anyone can suffer from heart problems

The kindly crane driver
You dont look much like a 15 year old boy? but of course, I dont think eating crisps,etc would cause any heart conditions,unless they had,suffered from it since childhood. Surely,as in so many of these questions,its sensible to get your family doctor to check it out if you have any concerns.

Yes . ANYONE can get a heart problem . Specially if their diet isn't good enough.

Heart problems can exist without even provocation. They're usually undetectable. But yes, a healthy diet is needed in order to maintain a healthy body.
The best thing to do is to take in your recommended intake of calories and such, and to also get general check-ups once a year.

'Sunnyside Up'
Yes they can. Anyone can develop heart conditions of any kind depending on heridity, diet and exercise. They all play a vital part in our health at any age.

Sarah McKenna
Yeah, of course,
Are you fat or just unhealthy?

yes. High blood pressure cholesterol. Could cause serious problems. See a doctor if concerned. If you are overwieght, go see a doctor anyway, they can give free advice and help alot.

yes, especially if his family has a history of heart disease. i had a friend who had a stroke when we were only 10 years old... a stroke

Anyone can get heart problems. It's more difficult for a younger person to get it, but if one's diet and/or heart health is poor enough heart problems can be developed at any age.
