Abstract

The Camerano study on Arterial Hypertension (AH), was a cross-sectional study carried out on a population living in a small town in central Italy. Its aim was to show the prevalence of certain characteristics of AH. We studied the association between AH and other well-known cardiovascular risk factors (CRF) such as: Hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, cigarette smoking, hyperglycemia, obesity and in particular the hereditary factor, evaluated as the degree of association between the AH of the subject and that of his parents. The results reveal a significantly high association between AH and all the CRF examined. Subjects suffering from AH had double the chance of concomitant another CRF compared to the normotensives. If three CRF are present are the same time, then the hypertensive subjects are three times as many. When hereditary factors are evaluated, then subjects with two hypertensive parents have twice as much probability of developing AH compared to subjects from a normotensive family.
