To determine whether Hispanics are at lower risk for the development of hypertension than non-Hispanic Whites.
We also examined selected predictors of hypertension incidence and explored the role of markers of insulin resistance in the development of hypertension.
A cohort study of a geographically-based sample of Hispanic and non-Hispanic white southern Colorado residents who were re-examined an average of 4 years after their baseline examination.
These analyses included 664 participants who were normotensive and confirmed nondiabetic by an oral glucose tolerance test at their baseline examination.
Hypertension was defined as systolic blood pressure =140 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure =90 mmHg or use of antihypertensive medication.
