Masked Hypertension in Prehypertensive African Americans After Dietary Stabilization
Objective: Office blood pressure (BP) measurements miss a significant number of individuals with masked hypertension (MHT). The aim of our study was to identify the prevalence of MHT and compare plasma levels of inflammatory biomarkers in apparently healthy prehypertensive (Office BP 120–139/80–89 mmHg) African Americans after a structured 6 wk dietary stabilization period.
