  • dietary factors and hypertension;
  • hypertension, due to stress and anxiety of modern lifestyle;
  • carbohydrate-rich and high-fat diet and hypertension;
  • fructose feeding–induced hypertension - insulin resistance and hypertriglyceridemia in Sprague-Dawley rats;
  • energy-dense diet, salt and hypertension;
  • purified synthetic diet - inducing renin-angiotensin system-dependent moderate high blood pressure;
  • high-sugar and high-fat-induced hypertension and reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide;
  • high-fructose and salt-induced hypertension and insulin resistance;
  • renal sympathetic nervous activity (SNA) elevation - blood pressure (BP) elevation;
  • diet rich in refined carbohydrates and saturated fats and insulin resistance


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Diet-induced Hypertension, Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System, and Nitric Oxide

  • High-sugar and High-fat-induced Hypertension and Reactive Oxygen Species and Nitric Oxide

  • High-fructose and Salt-induced Hypertension and Insulin Resistance

  • High-fat and High-carbohydrate-induced Hypertension and Sympathetic Nervous Activity
