Our current cross-sectional survey was led to decide on presumed intensity of anthropometric markers and to prescribe cut-off points to separate hypertension in young people in Bahawalpur, Pakistan. The overall 2,467 persons with ages 13-18 years joined in the survey, which represents an average duration of 15.6±2.52 years. Each anthropometric marker had a critical area below the ROC elbow, with a weight file (BMI) and an abdominal contour reaching from 0.8 to 0.9. The best anthropometric gauges to predict hypertension in young men remained waist circumference, BMI, and abdomen to body weight ratio. For young women, BMI remained best indicator, trailed by body weight and waist circumference. The suggested BMI cut-off for young men was 21 kg/m2 and 21.8 kg/m2 for young women. For WC, suggested cut-off was 68.2 cm for young men and 69.3 cm for young women. The BMI and WC thresholds were prescribed for use in the school setting, where the estimate can be oriented without stretching it too much. Place and duration: the research was conducted in BVH Bahawalpur for one-year duration from Jan 2019 to December 2019. Keywords: Anthropometric Pointer, Hypertension, Young People.
