This study was conducted to evaluate the mechanisms in weight gain-induced blood pressure (BP) elevation focusing, in particular, on the contributions of sympathetic nervous system activity, fasting plasma insulin, and leptin to BP levels. The study design was longitudinal with a cohort of 1897 men. BP, pulse rate, body mass index (BMI), fasting plasma norepinephrine (NE), insulin, and leptin were measured at 6 and 12 months in those 172 lean normotensive, 79 obese normotensive, 64 lean… CONTINUE READING
