A new study in the American Journal of Preventive Cardiology aimed to analyze the role of aldosterone as a mediator in the association of ICH with T2DF incidence among AAs in the JHS. The association of aldosterone with T2D incidence among AAs was also analyzed using glucose and blood pressure as mediators.
 
   New type of CT scan lights up the obvious cause of hypertensionNew type of CT scan lights up the obvious cause of hypertension
 
Doctors at Queen Mary University of London and Barts Hospital, and Cambridge University Hospital, have led research using a new type of CT scan to light up tiny nodules in a hormone gland and cure high blood pressure by their removal. The nodules are discovered in one-in-twenty people with high blood pressure.
