This may contribute to their higher incidence of left ventricular hypertrophy (blacks) and cardiovascular complications (diabetics). Hypertensives who maintain a diurnal pattern of blood pressure variation still exhibit higher daytime and nocturnal blood pressure levels than normotensives… CONTINUE READING
