Abstract

Introduction: Obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemia are increasing in prevalence worldwide, and are closely linked to cardiovascular diseases. Non-dipper hypertension pattern is associated with more severe target organ damage and cardiovascular events. Atherogenic dyslipidemia has evidence to be an independent risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. There is still not a study made comparing atherogenic dyslipidemia in hypertension patterns. In this study we aimed to compare the prevalence of atherogenic dyslipidemia and dipper, non-dipper hypertension in patients with grade 1 obesity.
