Abstract

A case of 59-year-old woman with poorly controlled hypertension in the evening at night coexisting with dyslipidemia,
impaired glucose tolerance, left ventricular hypertrophy and obstructive sleep apnea was reported. This case report
presents the possibility of using ambulatory blood pressure measurements to optimize hypertensive therapy throughout
the whole day. Current guidelines emphasize that optimal reduction in the global cardiovascular risk is achieved by simultaneous lowering of blood pressure and LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol. In this case, target blood pressure and target LDL cholesterol were obtained adding valsartan and rosuvastatin.
