Cardiovascular reactivity to stress may have a pathophysiological role in neurogenic hypertension. We studied the value of measuring blood pressure change during standardized mental and physical challenges to prediction of resting blood pressure status 6.5 years later among 206 middle-aged adults and their 164 children, with the latter group originally being tested while enrolled in elementary through high school. After adjustment for age, resting blood pressure, and body mass index at study… CONTINUE READING
