Systolic blood pressure (BP, a), adipose mass (b), left ventricular (LV) diastolic diameter (c) and prevalence of LV hypertrophy (d) in normal weight (n = 114), overweight (n = 113) and obese adolescents (n = 223). Note that prevalence of LV hypertrophy follows the excess of adipose mass, more than BP or LV chamber dimension. Adapted from Ref. 12. Asterisk significant vs normal weight subgroup; dagger significant vs overweight subgroup
