Sex Differences in Blood Pressure Trajectories Over the Life Course

Sex Differences in Blood Pressure Trajectories Over the Life Course Key PointsQuestionHow do patterns of blood pressure (BP) change over the life course and differ between sexes? FindingsIn this analysis of 4 community cohort studies, trajectories of BP elevation in 32 833 individuals (54% women) were examined serially over 4 decades (age span, 5 to 98 years). Women compared with men exhibited a steeper increase in BP measures that began as early as in the third decade and continued throughout the life course. MeaningSex differences in BP trajectories, which begin early and persist with aging, may set the stage for later-life cardiovascular diseases that frequently present differently in women vs men. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Cardiology American Medical Association
