Abstract

 Obesity is a known risk factor for hypertension. The mechanism behind obesity induced hypertension is not clear but has been proved to be associated with autonomic dysregulation in these individuals, which can be screened through various cardiac autonomic function tests like the Cold Pressor Test (CPT). But a major portion of the overweight population in India consists of non-obese overweight individuals and being weight as such has not been defined as a risk factor for hypertension. By studying Heart rate and Blood Pressure responses to CPT in Normotensive non-obese overweight indi-viduals and comparing them with that of Normotensive normalweight individuals, it can be better understood.
