Resumen

YANES QUESADA, Marelys et al. Clinical factors related to arterial hypertension in patients with impaired carbohydrate tolerance. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.4. ISSN 0864-2125.

Arterial hypertension is one of the most common diseases at present. Its association with glucose metabolism disorders speeds up the intolerance degree and its complications. In order to identify some clinical factors associated with it in patients with impaired glucose tolerance, a descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted among 329 patients  with previous history of hyperglycemia. A glucose tolerance test was performed to measure glycemia. The following data were collected: age, sex, weight and height. The body mass index and the arterial hypertension were calculated. The arterial hypertension frequency had an elevated prevalence of patients with impaired glucose tolerance, advanced age, male sex and a high body mass index, which are at the same time related to its increase, since when individuals present several risk factors, the arterial hypertension frequency rises.

Palabras clave : Arterial hypertension; impaired carbohydrate tolerance; diabetes mellitus.
