Endogenous dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) levels have been reported to be positively related to blood pressure levels. To further analyze this association, we quantified DHEAS in middle-aged subjects (mean age +/-SEM: 57.8+/-0.1 years) of a population-based sample (n = 646). DHEAS levels were higher in hypertensive as compared with normotensive individuals (1.26+/-0.04 v. 1.09+/-0.03 microg/mL, P = .01). After adjustment for age, gender, and body mass index, DHEAS levels were… CONTINUE READING
