Table 4 Mean blood pressure values for groups based on combined ACE I/D genotype and body fat category

From: ACE I/D genotype, adiposity, and blood pressure in children

ACE genotype II D carriers
Percent body fat category Normal fat
(n = 30)
Overfat
(n = 15)
Normal fat
(n = 62)
Overfat
(n = 45)
SBP (mmHg) 103.2 (1.3)* 105.7 (1.9) 102.6 (0.9)# 108.1 (1.1)*#
DBP (mmHg) 68.6 (1.1) 70.2 (1.6) 69.5 (0.8) 71.4 (1.0)
  1. SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure.
  2. * P < 0.05 for difference between II normal fat and D carrier overfat.
  3. # P < 0.05 for difference between D carrier normal fat and D carrier overfat.
