The activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is an important mechanism that contributes to hypertension in obese individuals. Thiazide diuretics also activate the RAS in response to volume contraction and can lead to a decrease in serum potassium values and glucose metabolism abnormalities. To evaluate the impact of abdominal obesity on potassium depletion and glucose homeostasis in hypertensive patients receiving thiazide therapy, the authors studied 329 hypertensive patients without kn...

Essential hypertension is a condition of peripheral insulin resistance; thus, fasting plasma glucose level (FPG) alone may not identify glucose tolerance abnormalities. To evaluate the value of an FPG of 100 mg/dL in the detection of these abnormalities in hypertensive women and to identify clinical markers of a high risk of glucose intolerance indicative of further investigation, the authors studied 313 hypertensive women, without known diabetes, in whom an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) wa...

Metabolic syndrome (MS) is seen nowadays as a worldwide epidemic event associated with high cardiovascular morbi-mortality and high socioeconomic cost. The ponderal gain is an independent predictor for the development of MS, although not all obese individuals present it. On the other hand, some populations with low obesity prevalence present high prevalence of MS and cardiovascular mortality. The distribution of corporal fat is relevant and visceral fat (VF), specifically, seems to be the link b...
