Hypertension (HTN) is common among obese children and adolescents and increases their cardiovascular risk later in adulthood. The aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of HTN identified by office blood pressure (BP) measurement and ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) in a cohort of obese children and adolescents and its association with anthropometric and glycometabolic indices.
