The present epidemiological study was performed to determine the prevalence of hypertension, obesity and dyslipidemia in minority populations from the pasture area of Xinjiang and to discuss the potential risk(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the association between polymorphisms of rs3740835(C/A) and rs2604204(A/C) in KCNJ5 gene with the susceptibility to unilateral and bilateral primary aldosteronism (PA). METHODS A total of 1043 subjects were studied, which included 83 unilateral PA patients,142 bilateral PA patients and 818 essential hypertensive(EH) patients. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between genetic polymorphisms of six-transmembrane protein of prostate 2 (STAMP2) and metabolic index, TNFα in Xinjiang Uygur population. METHODS STAMP2 gene functional regions were sequenced in Uygur Xinjiang population diagnosed as metabolic syndrome. Patients were divided into the following three groups by their(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of primary aldosteronism (PA) in hypertensive patients with hyperglycemia. Two hundred and thirty-two hypertensive patients with hyperglycemia were screened for PA. Fifty-four subjects with an aldosterone/rennin activity ratio >20 ng/dL per ng/mL/hour underwent a saline loading test. Primary aldosteronism(More)
