Abstract


The relationship between fat distribution and arterial pressure (AP) in women of a reproductive age revealed that AP was reliably higher in women with the abdominal distribution of fat than in the control and directly correlated with the waist circumference and the waist/hips ratio. It is noteworthy that the waist and waist/hips ratio are prognostically significant and simple factors for assessing the possible level of AP in obese women. The level of IRI and the IRI/glucose ratio in this population are also reliably higher than in the control, and directly correlate with the waist/hips ratio. The authors hypothesize that hyperinsulinism and insulin resistance, observed in cases with the abdominal distribution of fat, contribute to the pathogenesis of hypertension in obesity. Hence, abdominal distribution of fat is a factor promoting an increase of AP in obesity. We believe that timely treatment of obesity followed by maintenance of body weight within the norm is a method of preventing and treating hypertension in women of a reproductive age with the abdominal accumulation of fat.
