ath), and were more likely to develop eclampsia. Women who had previously smoked and stopped prior to or during their pregnancy also significantly decreased their risks.

-- Gender plays a role in risk factors, treatment and control of hypertension

Two separate studies in the United States found persistent gender disparities in blood pressure control and cardiovascular disease management.

From the 1999-2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Study, researchers analyzed data on 3,475 people, age 18 or older, diagnosed with hypertension. While blood pressure control in women and men was comparable (55.9 percent uncontrolled in women and 50.8 percent in men), the prevalence of central obesity, elevated total cholesterol level and low high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol were found to be significantly higher in women than in men. Those age adjusted risk factors included:

* central obesity (79 percent women vs. 63.9 percent men),

* elevated total cholesterol level (61.3 percent women vs. 48 percent men) and

* low high-density lipoprotein (LDL or "bad") cholesterol (39.7 women vs. 35.6 men.)
