Objective: Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is used for detection, follow-up of hypertensive patients and also demonstrates the diurnal variability of the blood pressure. Decreased blood pressure variability is associated with hypertensive target organ damage and higher risk for cardiovascular events. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are also related to inflammation and increased… CONTINUE READING
