Country of birth modifies the associations of body mass and hemoglobin A1c with office blood pressure in Middle Eastern immigrants and native Swedes.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Immigrant populations from the Middle East are at high risk of obesity and diabetes, but paradoxically hypertension is reported to be less prevalent. Studies of the risk factors for hypertension in these populations are scarce. The aim was to study the distribution of cardiovascular and metabolic risk factors in the Middle East immigrant population compared with native Swedes.
