BACKGROUND To investigate the associations of 24-h ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) and serum magnesium level (sMg) with risk of carotid artery alteration in a general population. METHODS sMg and ABP, monitored every 30 min, were measured in 728 subjects (mean age, 67 years) from the Japanese general population. The extent of carotid artery alteration was(More)
We evaluated the control condition of morning and evening home blood pressure (BP) and compared patients who had isolated uncontrolled morning hypertension and those who had sustained uncontrolled (morning and evening) hypertension using data from the Japan Home versus Office Blood Pressure Measurement Evaluation study. We evaluated 3303 treated(More)

Therefore, the association between these two factors was examined. METHODS A total of 194 men in the general population of Ohasama underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to clarify the factors affecting the morning-evening home systolic blood pressure (BP) difference (home systolic ME dif) in treated hypertensive patients, including evening home BP measuring conditions, based on the data from the Japan Home versus Office BP Measurement Evaluation study. METHODS The study(More)
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is not widely used in clinical practice, because the measuring procedure is complex and the devices are expensive and need to be fitted by skilled medical technologists. The Microlife WatchBP O3 (Microlife AG, Widnau, Switzerland), which was developed for self blood pressure monitoring at home and adapted for(More)
Family histories over several generations were studied, since it was considered that these might have various influences on the descendants, We hypothesized that poor home management policy by the parental generation would have greater influence on the onset of schizophrenia in the offsprings, and later their social adjustment.
