Hypertension (HTN) affects up to 75% of kidney transplant recipients and is associated with premature death. Nocturnal HTN is a common complication of ongoing essential HTN or a secondary cause of HTN. Both the non dipping of systolic blood pressure (SBP) at night time and the reverse dipping is associated with increased target organ damage and adverse cardiovascular outcomes and possibly allograft survival. Treatment of Nocturnal HTN is critical. Chronotherapy has been shown to be effective in halting progression in patients with diabetic nephropathy and chronic kidney disease. There is not enough data on prevalence and management of nocturnal HTN in transplant patients, which is the object of this study.

Hypertension is frequently studied in surveys; however, prehypertension, a new blood pressure status between normotension and hypertension, is rarely reported.
The adaptation of therapeutic approaches such as pharmacological (DRUG CHRONOTHERAPY), surgical, radiological, or physical to the known variations in biological RHYTHMICITY, such as CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS. The treatment is aimed at supporting normal rhythms, or modifying the timing of therapy to achieve maximal efficacy and minimal adverse effect.

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
