From: The association between obesity and blood pressure in Thai public school children

Variables Pre-hypertension Hypertension
BMI for age and gender   
- Normal Reference group Reference group
- Overweight 1.05 (0.20-5.50) 0.50 (0.06-4.42)
- Obesity 9.00** (3.20-25.31) 10.60** (3.75-30.00)

- ≥ P75 6.20** (2.60-14.81) 13.73** (4.85-38.83)
  1. Multinomial logistic regression was computed for high blood pressure risk factors controlling age, sex, plasma lipid (TG and TC/HDL-C) and glucose (FPG) levels. Values were reported as odd ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI). **p-value < 0.01.
