Cardiometabolic Risk in Hypertensive Patients

Hypertension is a potent and modifiable CVD risk factor. The relationship between BP and CVD risk is linear, consistent, and independent of other risk factors. For instance, the probability of myocardial infarction, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, and stroke rises in step with BP. From a start point of 115/75 mmHg, CVD risk doubles for each 20 mmHg rise in systolic BP (SBP) and each 10 mmHg rise in diastolic BP. Hypertension-related CVD risk also escalates in the presence of other risk factors
