Recognition and treatment of secondary causes of hypertension among patients with resistant hypertension may help to control blood pressure and reduce cardiovascular risk. However, there are no studies systematically evaluating secondary causes of hypertension according to the Seventh Joint National Committee. Consecutive patients with resistant hypertension were investigated for known causes of hypertension irrespective of symptoms and signs, including aortic coarctation, Cushing syndrome, obst...

Purpose of review Obesity is established as an important contributor of increased diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, all of which can promote chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recently, there is a growing appreciation that even in the absence of these risks, obesity itself significantly increases CKD and accelerates its progression.

OBJECTIVE —Optimal initial antihypertensive drug therapy in people with the metabolic syndrome is unknown. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS —We conducted a subgroup analysis of the Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial (ALLHAT) to compare metabolic, cardiovascular, and renal outcomes in individuals assigned to initial hypertension treatment with a thiazide-like diuretic (chlorthalidone), a calcium channel blocker (CCB; amlodipine), or an ACE inhibitor (lisinopril...

Abstract Objective: Optimal initial antihypertensive drug therapy in persons with the metabolic syndrome (MetS) is unknown. Research Design and Methods: We conducted a subgroup analysis of the Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial (ALLHAT) to compare metabolic, cardiovascular (CV), and renal outcomes in individuals assigned to initial hypertension treatment with a thiazide-like diuretic (chlorthalidone [C]), a calcium channel blocker (amlodipine [A]), or an ...

OBJECTIVE —We sought to test the hypothesis that a fixed-dose combination of trandolapril/verapamil-SR (T/V) is superior to a fixed-dose combination of losartan/hydrochlorothiazide (L/H) on glucose tolerance in hypertensive patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS —A prospective, randomized, open-label, blinded–end points design was used to assess the effects of a T/V versus L/H combination in patients with IGT and hypertension ( n = 240) followed for up to 1 y...

Background: Obesity-related glomerulopathy is an important complication of obesity that shares some pathophysiological factors relevant to renal damage with diabetic nephropathy. It was recognized that podocyte lesions lead to proteinuria and glomerulosclerosis in patients with some proteinuric glomerular diseases, especially diabetic nephropathy. However, podocyte changes in patients with obesity-related glomerulopathy and the underlying mechanisms are unclear. Methods: Glomerular volume, podoc...

Background Few studies address long-term effects of weight loss on risk of incident hypertension among overweight adults. Methods We evaluated weight loss among 623 overweight (body mass index [calculated as weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters] ≥25) middle-aged (aged 30-49 years) and 605 overweight older (aged 50-65 years) adults in Framingham, Mass. Subjects were classified first according to amount of weight lost over 4 years: (1) weight changed by less than 1.8 kg (s...

Obesity in adulthood is combined with vascular endothelial cell and platelet activation. In this study we evaluated whether or not such activation is already present in obese children. Forty obese (10.3 ± 2.5 yr) and 40 nonobese (10.3 ± 2.3 yr) children were studied. Circulating levels of soluble (s) intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), and E-selectin, as indices of vascular endothelial cell activation, were assessed in both groups. Plasma conce...

The coexistence of hypertension and diabetes dramatically and synergistically increases the risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications. Overwhelming evidence supports aggressive treatment of hypertension in diabetic patients. Tight blood pressure control is cost-effective and is more rewarding than glycemic control. The optimal goal of blood pressure control in diabetics should be 130/80 mm Hg. In subjects who have diabetes and renal insufficiency, the blood pressure should be lowered...
