Previous studies report lower systemic blood pressures in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) than in appropriate controls. The etiology of the lower systolic and diastolic blood pressures (SBP and DBP) remains uncertain. Blood pressure measurements from patients followed at our center (UNC cohort) were compared with values obtained from the Cooperative Study of Sickle Cell Disease (CSSCD) and healthy control subjects. Associations of SBP and DBP with clinical and laboratory covariates were… CONTINUE READING
