There is substantial evidence that obesity is a prime risk factor for the development of hypertension. Although hyperinsulinemia and an increased activity of the sympathetic nervous system have been implicated in the pathogenesis of "obesity hypertension," their effects on energy metabolism have not been studied thus far. In the present study, we therefore examined resting metabolic rate (RMR) and basal substrate oxidation in subjects with obesity and obesity-related hypertension. A total of… CONTINUE READING
