Abstract

Rationale: Obesity, blood pressure and arterial stiffness are heritable traits interconnected to each other but their possible common genetic and environmental etiologies are unknown. Methods: We studied 228 monozygotic and 150 dizygotic twin pairs aged 18-82 years from Italy, Hungary and the United States, of which 45 monozygotic and 38 dizygotic pairs were discordant for body mass index (BMI; intrapair difference (δ) in BMI≥3kg/m2). Blood pressure components and arterial stiffness were measured by TensioMed Arteriograph. Results: Hypertension was more prevalent among obese than non-obese individuals (55% vs. 29%, p
