AbstractThis study accomplished to determine levels of salivary Alpha-Amylase (sAA) in Iraqi children with positive family history of hypertension, Hypertension was believed to be a risk factor in 18% of all deaths in 2010 (9.4 million globally). This study included one hundred children from primary school aged 6 to 13 years, with a focus in child welfare and family health history, with an emphasis on close relatives' hypertension reputations, with hypertension close relatives record categories identified by 1st and 2nd relatives, after documenting the full details, the burden was assessed for the children's families. The influence of age is confirmed by a correlation study of our own numbers, which shows a positive correlation. The disparity between age and salivary amylase level was important, with age group (12-13) years students having a higher mean salivary amylase level (309.7 U/L) than age group (6-7) years students (270.6 U/L). The gender outcome did not exceed statistical significance, but the gap was not important, which may be due to the limited sample size.
