  1. Level of control of hypertension in Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic whites.

    Article - En anglais

    Compared with non-Hispanic whites, Mexican Americans have a higher prevalence of diabetes, greater adiposity, and a unfavorable body fat distribution.

    The prevalence of hypertentsion, however, is similar or lower in Mexican Americans than in non-Hispanic whites.

    There is little information on the level of blood pressure control in Mexican Americans.

    We compared the mean blood pressure levels of Mexican American and non-Hispanic white hypertensive subjects in the San Antonio Heart Study, a population-based study of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
