Abstract

 

Essential hypertension is often associated with a clustering of multiple risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes mellitus including abdominal adiposity, insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, and dyslipidemia in addition to elevated blood pressure (BP)1,2. This clustering of multiple risk factors is referred to as the metabolic syndrome (Msyn) and affects about 30% of the general population3 and 40% of those with hypertension4. The public health burden of hypertension5 and the Msyn4,6 continues to increase as the population ages and grows in size.
