The present study shows that resting blood pressure among young men reflects sympathoadrenal activity. Moreover, sympathoadrenal reactivity during stress at a young age seems to predict a future risk of developing hypertension and insulin resistance, thus supporting the theory that sympathoadrenal activity may play an important role in the development of these diseases.
