A group of middle-aged men (n=2322) were examined at a health screening which included an intravenous glucose tolerance test (IVGTT) with insulin determinations, and were then re-examined approximately 10 years later.
At the first survey, 19.6% of the participants had hypertension, defined as diastolic blood pressure >=95 mmHg or were receiving drug treatment for hypertension.
At follow-up survey, the corresponding figure was 34.7%. Baseline blood pressures were the strongest predictors of future development of hypertension.
