Red cell distribution width (RDW) is independently associated with morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular diseases. RDW is elevated in hypertensive patients compared with normotensives. Based on the nocturnal course, hypertension classified as dipper and non-dipper. Non-dipper hypertension is associated with higher inflammation and worse prognosis. We aimed to investigate whether RDW and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) are elevated in non-dipper hypertensive patients compared with… CONTINUE READING
