ÂWeÂre studying why people who are obese become hypertensive,Â Dr. Schreihofer said of one aspect of her work. ÂWe believe this is due to something about the obese state: We donÂt know what that is, but weÂre starting to rule things out.Â Indeed, the Schreihofer laboratory has already answered one question: Does hypertension occur because the brain loses its ability to sense that the blood vessels are stretching under high pressure? In a study with obese rats, they found the ratsÂ brains could sense the stretch but still became hypertensive, eliminating that mechanism as a possibility.
