Abstract

We evaluated how metabolic disorders affected antihypertension therapy. 2,912 rural Chinese patients with hypertension who provided blood samples, demographic and clinical data at baseline and after 1 year of antihypertension therapy were evaluated. At baseline, 1,515 patients (52.0%) were already receiving drug therapy and 11.4% of them had controlled blood pressure (BP). After 1 year, all 2,912 patients were receiving antihypertension therapy that was administered by community physicians, and 59.42% of them had controlled BP. Central obesity and abnormal triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and glucose were associated with 15-70% higher risks of uncontrolled hypertension. Metabolic syndrome using the JIS criteria was associated with poor BP control (odds ratio: 1.71 and 1.54 for the baseline and follow-up datasets, respectively). The risk of uncontrolled hypertension increased with the number of metabolic disorders (p for trend <0.01). The presence of ≥3 metabolic disorder factors was associated with higher risks of poor BP control. The associations of metabolic factors and uncontrolled hypertension were stronger for the standard and modified ATP III criteria, compared to the IDF and JIS criteria. Metabolic factors were associated with less effective antihypertension therapy, and all definitions of metabolic syndrome helped identify patients with elevated risks of uncontrolled hypertension.
