Abstract


Background: The risk associated with serum uric acid (SUA) levels when within the normal range is unknown. This study aims to examine whether SUA within the normal range is a predictor of hypertension.

Methods: The subjects comprised 704 men aged 71?±?9 (mean?±?standard deviation) years and 946 women aged 70?±?8?years recruited for a survey at the community based annual medical check-up. The main outcome was the presence of hypertension (antihypertensive medication and/or having SBP ≥140?mmHg and/or DBP ≥90?mmHg).

Results: At baseline, 467 (66.3%) men and 608 (64.3%) women had hypertension. Comparing to lowest quartile in women (SUA-1, uric acid
Conclusions: These results suggest that baseline SUA within the normal range could be an important predictor for incidence of hypertension in Japanese community-dwelling elderly women.
