Characteristics of Subjects With Overweight or Obesity at the Onset of Hypertension

2019-09-24 05:27:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study aims to investigate the characteristics of subjects with hypertension at onset among a cohort of apparently healthy subjects, with overweight or obesity (BMI ≥ 25 Kg / m2), and free of any drug treatment at the baseline. The evaluation includes anthropometric (weight, height, BMI, waist circumference), haematochemical (hormones, metabolic and routine) parameters and the screening for hypertension with ABPM. The diagnosis of hypertension is made in accordance with the 2017 guidelines of the American College of Cardiology / American Heart Association ACC / AHA.
