Abstract

Correlates of hypertension were assessed in 1266 HIV-positive and 368 HIV-negative women in the Women's Interagency HIV Study. Hypertension prevalence was similar in HIV-positive and HIV-negative women (26 versus 28%, P = 0.38). Factors associated with hypertension included increasing age (P < 0.0001), African-American race (P < 0.0001), and body mass index greater than 30 kg/m (P < 0.0001), whereas current pregnancy was protective (P < 0.04). HIV infection, CD4 cell count, HIV-1 viral load, and antiretroviral therapy were not associated with hypertension.
