ABSTRACT
Total 100 hypertensive subjects and 100 sex matched controls were enrolled in this study. Inclusion criteria was patients with blood pressure 140/90 mm of Hg, while patients with secondary hypertension, stroke, CAD, MI and diabetes mellitus were excluded. Serum hs­CRP was estimated by Latex enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay. Serum Uric acid was estimated by Uricase / POD end point assay. We estimated hs­CRP and Uric acid in hypertensives and controls, then we suggested hypertensives for 3 months Pranayam, again the same parameters were estimated and compared by using Students t test and one - way ANOVA to determine significant differences.
Before Pranayam, hs­CRP was increased significantly (<0.001) in hypertensive subjects compared to controls. Uric acid was also increased significantly (p<0.001) in hypertensives compared to controls .But after 3 months Pranayam, there was significant (p<0.001) decrease in hs­CRP and insignificant (p>0.05) decrease in uric acid levels in hypertensives compared to hypertensives before Pranayam.
It was concluded that Pranayam can significantly suppress inflammation and can reduce inflammatory markers (hs­CRP & Uric acid) in hypertensives. There is positive co­relation between hs­CRP and uric acid in hypertensive subjects, which are all documented as proinflammatory markers for hypertension.
Key words :C­ Reactive Protein, Highly sensitive, Pranayam, Uric acid.
