OBJECTIVES We aim to assess if the relationship between short or long sleep duration and hypertension is present among adults from epidemiological evidence and to investigate the relationship quantitatively. METHODS We performed a comprehensive search of cross-sectional and longitudinal studies using PubMed and the Cochrane Library through February 2012.(More)
BACKGROUND Overweight and obesity are now considered as a serious health problem, and a very important risk factor for many diseases. OBJECTIVE This study was designed to investigate the epidemiologic features of overweight and obesity among rural adults in China. METHOD AND PROCEDURES A cross-sectional survey was conducted during 2004-2005, using a(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the status of overweight and obesity in a Chinese rural adult population and describe relationships between body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure according to JNC-7. METHODS The study was conducted in 2004-2006, used a multistage cluster sampling method to select a representative sample. A total of 45,925 adults, age 35 years or(More)
UNLABELLED OBJECTIVE We wanted to determine the incidence of hypertension and its risk factors among rural Chinese adults. METHODS A population-based sample of 24,360 rural Chinese adults aged 35 years and older and free from hypertension at baseline was observed from 2004-2006 to 2008. Incident hypertension was defined as a systolic pressure of 140 mm Hg(More)
BACKGROUND Prehypertension is a new category of blood pressure (BP) classification according to the Seventh Report of The Joint National Committee. Little is known about the epidemiology of prehypertension in rural China. The purpose of the present study is to determine the prevalence of prehypertension and associated risk factors in rural adult people of(More)
BACKGROUND The coronary sinus (CS) has a myocardial coat (CSMC) with extensive connections to the left and right atria. We postulated that some posteroseptal and left posterior accessory pathways (CSAPs) result from connections between a cuff of CSMC extending along the middle cardiac vein (MCV) or posterior coronary vein (PCV) and the ventricle. The(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of prehypertension and hypertension in the rural adults of Liaoning province of China. METHODS The study was conducted in 2004-2006, using a multistage cluster sampling method to select a representative sample. A total of 45925 adults, 35 years or older, were examined. Two blood(More)
Little is known about the prevalence and risk profile of prehypertension among Chinese children and adolescents. The aim of the present study was to investigate the prehypertensive status and its associated risk factors among rural Chinese children and adolescents. We conducted a cross-sectional study including 5,245 children and adolescents (2,732 boys and(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the risk of progression to hypertension across baseline blood pressure (BP) level among rural Chinese adults. METHODS A population-based sample of 24 052 rural Chinese adults aged at least 35 years and free from hypertension at baseline were followed up from 2004-2006 to 2008. Incident hypertension was defined as SBP of at least 140(More)
BACKGROUND STK39 interacts with OXSR1 and phosphorylates the sodium-chloride co-transporter (SLC12A3), which plays a critical role in regulating the salt/water balance and blood pressure. Here we tested whether STK39, OXSR1, and SLC12A3 genetically contribute to hypertension in the Han Chinese population and how the SNP to SNP or SNP to other risk factors(More)
