Impact of body mass index on blood pressure levels in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome

Abstract: As there is controversy about the prevalence of hypertension in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and, up to the present moment, no studies have evaluated the impact of body mass index (BMI) on blood pressure levels (BP) in these patients, we studied retrospectively sixty-nine patients with PCOS, with BMI of 29.0 ± 6.7 kg/m 2 and aged 25.6 ± 5.6 yr, subdivided into three groups according to BMI (normal, overweight and obese) and evaluated regarding BP (mercury sphygmomanometer), basal hormonal pro… Show more

“…In a study of the influence of BMI on hypertension in patients with PCOS, Etling et al [11] found a higher prevalence of high blood pressure among women with a BMI greater than 27. Similar findings for a correlation between increasing blood pressure and increasing BMI were also reported by Cristiano et al [12], who studied 69 patients with PCOS to determine the impact of BMI on blood pressure levels.…”

“…In a study with menopausal and perimenopausal women, a higher incidence of hypertension was observed among patients with PCOS [11]. As reports on the relationship between BMI and PCOS are scarce [12], we carried out the present study to determine whether there is a correlation between BMI and blood pressure and/or the typical clinical features in women with PCOS. …”

“…48 The presence of overweight (BMI between 25 and 30 kg/m 2 ) is associated with the increase of some CV risk factors, which has been demonstrated in patients with PCOS. 41,49 For this reason, we considered it highly appropriate to compare obese subjects with women with normal BMI (BMI between 18-25 kg/m 2 ) and not with overweight (BMI between 25-30 kg/m 2 ).…”

“…19 Another population study from Brazil demonstrated similar findings in 69 women with PCOS when divided by BMI into normal, overweight, and obese categories and revealed a hypertension prevalence of 20.3%,;78.6% of these were obese and 21.4% were overweight. 66 An examination of a Czech population of PCOS women in their early 30s compared to non-PCOS women revealed that, after adjusting for BMI, PCOS women had higher blood pressure. 58 In a population of Dutch women with PCOS aged 45-54 yrs old, the prevalence of hypertension was 2.5 times greater than that of an age-matched Dutch female population.…”
