How can excess belly fat affect high blood pressure?

High blood pressure is linked to excess abdominal fat, particularly visceral fat. Abdominal obesity and hypertension are linked by many physiological pathways. 

Insulin resistance, which reduces cell response to insulin, is typically linked to abdominal obesity.

Chronic inflammation causes endothelial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and vascular damage, which raises blood pressure.

Adipose tissue releases adipokines. Obesity and hypertension may be linked to leptin and adiponectin imbalances.

Excess abdominal fat overactivates the sympathetic nervous system, which controls heart rate and blood vessel constriction.

Kidney sodium reabsorption increases with insulin resistance, which is typical in abdominal obesity.

Sleep apnea and obese hypoventilation syndrome affect sleep breathing, raising blood pressure.

Hypertension and abdominal obesity patients should contact with doctors for tailored recommendations, including lifestyle changes and medicinal therapies.
