    POVEZANOST HIPERTENZIJE S DUGOTRAJNOM PREKOMJERNOM TEŽINOM I DOBIVANJEM NA TEŽINI: CroHort STUDIJA ----- Povećana težina povezana je s hipertenzijom, međutim longitudinalne studije o utjecaju dobivanja na težini na krvni tlak relativno su rijetke. Cilj ove studije bio je istražiti povezanost dugotrajne prekomjerne težine, kao i prekomjernog dobivanja tjelesne težine s hipertenzijom. Za 1,383 ispitanika Hrvatske kohortne studije kardiovaskularnog zdravlja koji su imali normalni krvni tlak 2003. godine, izračunat je rizik za hipertenziju u 2008. godini. Rezultati su pokazali da su kod žena i dugotrajna prekomjerna težina, kao i nedavno (tijekom posljednjih 5 godina) prekomjerno dobivanje tjelesne težine, značajno povezani s pojavom hipertenzije, dok je kod muškaraca povezanost s hipertenzijom zabilježena samo za dugotrajnu prekomjernu težinu. Preventivne aktivnosti usmjerene na održavanje normalne tjelesne težine trebale bi biti važan dio primarne prevencije hipertenzije.

    English abstract

    Overweight is associated with hypertension, but longitudinal studies on the effect of weight gain on blood pressure are relatively rare. Aim of this study was to investigate association of long-term overweight status as well as of becoming overweight with hypertension. Odds of hypertension in 2008 were calculated for 1,383 respondents from Croatian Adult Health Cohort Study (CroHort) who had normal blood pressure in 2003. The results showed that for women both long-term overweight status and recently becoming overweight (in the last 5 years) were significantly associated with development of hypertension, while for men this was true only for long-term overweight. Prevention activities aimed at maintenance of normal body weight should be important part of primary prevention of hypertension.
