Abstract

There is mounting evidence that subclinical nonpathological high blood pressure and heart rate during youth and adulthood steadily increase the risk of developing a cardiovascular disease at a later stage. For this reason, it is important to understand the mechanisms underlying the subclinical elevation of blood pressure and heart rate in healthy, relatively young individuals. In the present study, we present a network-based metabolomic study of blood plasma metabolites and lipids measured using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy on 841 adult healthy blood donor volunteers, which were stratified for subclinical low and high blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) and heart rate. Our results indicate a rewiring of metabolic pathways active in high and low groups, indicating that the subjects with subclinical high blood pressure and heart rate could present latent cardiometabolic dysregulations.
