Excess weight is established as a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, particularly in young individuals. To get a better understanding of the pathophysiology underlying increased cardiovascular disease risk, we evaluated early signs of organ damage and their possible relationship to sympathetic nervous activity. Eighteen lean (body mass index <25 kg/m(2)) and 25 overweight or obese (body mass index >25 kg/m(2)) healthy university students were included in the study. We… CONTINUE READING
