Bottom Line: SBP and DBP rose steadily with increasing age, but the rise in SBP was greater than DBP.The findings of present study show that BP percentiles are steadily increased by age and BMI.In addition, most obese or overweight adults are hypertensive.

ABSTRACT
Since no comprehensive study has been conducted on blood pressure (BP) percentiles established upon nationally representative sample population of adults, the present study aimed to construct the blood pressure percentiles by age, sex and body mass index (BMI) of the subjects. Analyses were based on data collected in 2011 from 8,425 adults aged 25 to 69 years old. Data on demographic characteristics, anthropometric measurements, and blood pressure was recorded for each subject. Linear Regression analysis was used to assess the adjusted relationship of age-sex-specific standard deviation scores of BMI, height, and weight with blood pressure. Four separate models for systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) of men and women were constructed for BP percentiles according to age and BMI. Blood pressure increased with the rise in BMI and weight, but showed a negative correlation with height. SBP and DBP rose steadily with increasing age, but the rise in SBP was greater than DBP. Overweight and obese population, seem to fall into the category of hypertensive. The findings of present study show that BP percentiles are steadily increased by age and BMI. In addition, most obese or overweight adults are hypertensive.

T4: BP Levels for females according to age and BMI

Mentions: Tables 3(Tab. 3) and 4(Tab. 4) demonstrate the 50th, 90th, 95th, and 99th percentiles of SBP and DBP for the 5th, 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, 90th, and 95th percentiles of BMI in specific selected ages of both genders. To create a better perception of data presented in Tables 3(Tab. 3) and 4(Tab. 4), four line graphs were designed to show the trend of changes in 90th, 95th, and 99th of SBP and DBP percentiles by age for the 75th and 95th BMI percentiles of men and women. The 75th percentile of BMI for the subjects aged 25 to 70 years old ranged from 25.87 to 29.08 kg/m2 for men and 26.86 to 31.94 kg/m2 for women.
