This study examined the association between maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy in the Japan Environment and Children's Study, a nationwide birth cohort study. A total of 76 940 pregnant women were included in the analysis. Information about alcohol consumption during pregnancy was obtained using two questionnaires: T1 and T2. The mean (standard deviation) gestational age in the T1 and T2 questionnaires were 16.5 (5.8) and 27.9 (3.7) weeks, respectively. Alcohol consumption was considered as an exposure, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy as an outcome, and possible confounding factors were included in a generalized linear mixed-effects model with a logit link function...

Hypertension is a common comorbidity of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Both conditions are associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, which is reduced by tight blood pressure (BP) and glycemic control. However, nondipping BP status continues to be an enduring cardiovascular risk factor in T2DM. Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy and endothelial dysfunction have been proposed as potential mechanisms. This study tested the hypothesis that microvascular disease rather than cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy interferes with the physiological nocturnal BP reduction...

It remains unknown which surrogate markers can predict diagnostic test results for primary hyperaldosteronism (PA). The Secondary Hypertension Registry Investigation in Mie Prefecture (SHRIMP) study has sequentially and prospectively recruited 128 patients with hypertension with an aldosterone-to-renin ratio (ARR) greater than 20, evaluated the differences among essential hypertension (EHT), idiopathic hyperaldosteronism (IHA), and aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA), and analyzed the predictors for the confirmatory tests...

Previous studies have reported that a high free fat mass (FFM) was associated with elevated blood pressure in children. However, the observed relationship could be confounded by body weight. Thus, we performed cross-sectional analyses to understand the differences between the percentage of free fat mass (FFM%) and FFM in relation to blood pressure in healthy Chinese children. A total number of 2671 (1264 girls; aged 6-14 years) healthy Chinese children was recruited in 2014 (baseline). We further prospectively examined whether these indices predicted hypertension risk during the 2 years of follow-up (2014-2016) among 2094 participants who were free of hypertension at the baseline...

The aim was to investigate the risk of developing type 2 diabetes according to blood pressure (BP) levels and presence or absence of hypertensive treatment. This 5-year cohort study comprised 3508 Japanese adults aged 30-74 years without diabetes who had undergone a medical checkup including a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) between April 2008 and March 2009 at Saku Central Hospital. Participants receiving antihypertensive treatment were categorized into controlled hypertension ( < 140/90 mmHg) or uncontrolled hypertension ( ≥ 140/90 mmHg) groups...

High-salt intake is one of the major dietary determinants of increased blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Thus, there is scientific and medical interest in understanding the mechanistic abnormalities mediating the pressor effects of salt (salt sensitivity). According to historical theory, salt sensitivity stems from an impairment in renal function (referred to as "abnormal pressure natriuresis" or a "natriuretic handicap"), which causes salt-sensitive subjects to excrete a sodium load more slowly, and retain more of it than salt-resistant normotensive controls...

The morbidity of hypertension is increasing among young adults worldwide, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is a high-prevalence genetic disease. We investigated whether G6PD deficiency was associated with abnormal blood pressure (including elevated blood pressure and hypertension) among prepregnant reproductive-age females. We conducted a cross-sectional study in Shenzhen, which included 154 917 females aged 20-49 who participated in the National Free Pre-conception Check-up Projects supported by the Chinese government...

REVIEW
Kei Kamide, Mai Kabayama
Special characteristics of blood pressure (BP) variability have been noted in older people. As some specific types of BP variability related to hypertension or hypotension might be associated with higher mortality or geriatric syndromes, such as dementia and frailty, doctors or medical providers should obtain precise knowledge about BP variations in older people and closely monitor these changes in various situations. In this review article, the proposed mechanisms of BP variability in older people and common and clinically important types of BP variability are explained and discussed using recent studies...

Blood pressure (BP) measured in the clinic is subject to the white coat effect and does not always indicate the 'usual' BP. Ambulatory BP is the current gold standard, but remains inconvenient for routine use. Interest in automated BP, where the healthcare professional is absent from the examination room during BP measurement, is growing, as this reduces the white coat effect and yields BP values that are close to ambulatory readings. The aim of this study was to investigate how well automated office BP (AOBP), measured using the Omron HEM-907 device, compares with observed office BP (OOBP, healthcare professional remains in the examination room) and awake ambulatory BP (AABP) measurements...

Family history of hypertension (FH) is a nonmodifiable risk factor for hypertension. However, cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is a modifiable risk factor and might be important for preventing hypertension in both people with and without FH. The purpose of this study was to investigate the combined association of CRF and FH on the incidence of hypertension in normotensive male Japanese workers. A total of 6890 workers were included in this study. CRF was determined using a submaximal exercise test. A self-reported questionnaire was used to determine FH...

This study aimed to assess the association of cigarette smoking with radial augmentation index among the Asian general population. We conducted a cross-sectional population-based study including 1593 men and 2671 women aged 40-79 years. Smoking status was ascertained through interviews, and the number of pack-years was calculated. The radial augmentation index was defined as the ratio of central pulse pressure to brachial pulse pressure, as measured using an automated tonometer: the HEM-9000AI (Omron Healthcare co...

Blood pressure (BP) responses to dietary sodium intervention vary among individuals. The inwardly rectifying potassium channel (Kir) is a potassium-selective ion channel that allows potassium ions to move more easily into rather than out of the cell. We aimed to investigate the associations of Kir genes with BP responses to dietary sodium intervention. A 7-day low-sodium intervention followed by a 7-day high-sodium intervention was conducted among 1906 participants. BP measurements were obtained at baseline and during each dietary intervention...

We evaluated the relationship between blood pressure variability (BPV) and the development of hypertension during pregnancy. A total of 4163 pregnant women with normal blood pressure (BP) before 20 weeks of gestation were included in this study. The visit-to-visit blood pressure variability (VVV) was evaluated using the standard deviation (SD) of the systolic BP taken three times during pregnancy at approximately 10, 20, and 30 weeks of gestation. The VVV gradually decreased during pregnancy in normotensive subjects (SD: 7...

The association of histamine with adverse cardiac remodeling in chronic pressure overload has not received much attention. A pilot study in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) indicated a reduction of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) with a histamine-2-receptor (H2R) antagonist (famotidine). This finding prompted a detailed investigation of temporal variation in myocardial histamine and H2R expression and the cardiovascular response to H2R antagonism compared with that of the conventional beta-blocker metoprolol...

The authors are retracting this article [1]. In their recent work the authors have found that the degree of fibrosis in the different walls of the left atrium in pigs with hypertensive cardiomyopathy is the same. Sirius Red staining (another method to test for fibrosis) showed that there was no difference between the different walls. The authors are unable to explain this inconsistency. All authors agree with this retraction.
