Background: The predicable value of triglyceride—glucose index (TyG) for the risk of developing hypertension is still unclear.
Methods: A population-based sample of 4680 subjects aged ≥ 35 years and free from hypertension at baseline were followed from 2012 to 2016.
Results: After 11289.42 person-years of follow-up, there were 478 male and 427 female cases of incident hypertension. Baseline levels of TyG were shown in Fig.1. After adjusted the confounders (Fig.2), Cox regression analyses showed TyG index was significantly associated with developing hypertension(in males, HR=1.192,95%CI:1.024-1.387,p=0.024 ; in females, HR=1.341,95%CI:1.120 -1.607, p=0.001).
Conclusions: Our results evidenced the associations between TyG index and the incidence of hypertension based on a general cohort.
