Essential hypertensionis a typical example of complex, multifactorial trait and a well studied risk factor for cardiovascular disease. hs-CRP is well known marker of inflammation resulting in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Recent studies showed that 25-OH-vitamin-D has ananti-inflammatory role and decreased levels may increase the cardiovascular risk in subjects with essential hypertension. The study included 30 adults both male and female with essential hypertension (Systolic Blood Pressure ≥ 140 mm Hg and Diastolic Blood Pressure ≥ 90 mm Hg) as cases. 30 age and sex matched healthy individuals both male & female between the age group of 24-60 years attending General OPD, General Medicine Department, NMCH, were taken as controls. The inverse relationship of Vitamin D with hs-CRP levels leads to cardiovascular risk in subjects with essential hypertension.
