Hypertension and Obesity

As an important public health challenge, the importance of hypertension and obesity is increasing worldwide. As compared to year 2000, the number of adults affected with hypertension is predicted to increase to a total of 1.56 billion by the year 2025. The increasing commonness of obesity is recognized as one of the most important risk factors for the development of hypertension. Excess body weight is the sixth most important risk factor adding to the overall hardship of disease in the world with more than 1 billion adults and 10% of children are now classified as overweight or obese. Obesity and specifically central obesity have been persistently involved with hypertension and increased cardiovascular risk. Population studies suggest that at least two-thirds of the prevalence of hypertension can be directly associated to obesity. There is growing evidence of obesity contributing to the development as well as to the growth of chronic kidney disease. Glomerular hyperfiltration, increased urinary albumin loss and progressive loss of renal function caused by focal segmental glomerulosclerosis are results of obesity. Obesity accelerates progression in patients with established renal disease.
