People with severe obesity and a genetic pathway variant have increased risk of hypertension, Mayo Clinic research finds

By Jay Furst Jay Furst (@jayfurst)

Obesity and its associated cardiometabolic issues are a major health concern in the U.S. and internationally. According to a study published in 2017, 12% of the world’s adult population was affected by obesity in 2016, double the percentage from 30 years earlier. With obesity comes an increasing risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke, congestive heart failure and myocardial […]
