Essential hypertension is a major global risk factor for premature death. The Framingham Group have shown that the appearance of diastolic hypertension is linked to: a) Young/middle age, b) Obesity. Central obesity is associated with high sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) (via high blood insulin/leptin levels acting upon the hypothalamus). High SNA, independent of BP is associated with premature cardiovascular death in middle-age. Antihypertensive agents that increase SNA, e.g., diuretics, dihydropyridine calcium blockers, and ARBs, do not reduce (and may increase) the risk of cardiovascular death in younger/middle-aged hypertensive subjects. The first-line choice of antihypertensive drug in such cases should be either beta-blockade or ACE-I. Guide-line Committees around the world are confused on this issue.
