Introduction: The comorbid course of hypertension and hypothyroidism (HT), a recognized risk factor for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), is characterized by a more severe hypertension and prognosis. Measurement of CAP is required for stratification of CVD risk in hypertensive patients with concurrent HT. At the same time, the possibilities and features of the effect of fixed antihypertensive combinations on the CAP indicators in patients with hypertension and hypothyroidism have not been studied.

Aim of the Study: The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy of various fixed double combinations of antihypertensive drugs and to evaluate their effects on central and peripheral BP in hypertensive patients with concurrent hypothyroidism.

Methods and Results: Patients enrolled in the study (n = 41) were divided into 2 groups using the sealed envelope method. At enrollment, the groups were statistically matched by age, body mass index, duration of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), duration of hypertension, level of office systolic blood pressure, SBP, and DBP. Patients of the first group (n = 21) received a fixed double combination of perindopril with indapamide, patients of the second group (n = 20) received a fixed double combination of perindopril with amlodipine. Based on the obtained regression model, the independent factors associated with the reduction in CAP are BMI, duration of hypertension, TSH level, systolic BP mean in the daytime and diastolic BP mean at night.

Conclusion: Based on the results of both ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and measurement of central aortic pressure, it has been found that the studied fixed combinations of antihypertensive drugs, namely perindopril with indapamide and perindopril with amlodipine, reduce blood pressure (p < 0.05) and central aortic pressure (p < 0.05) in hypertensive patients with concurrent hypothyroidism. Although the fixed combination of perindopril with indapamide led to a more significant reduction in blood pressure, the combination of perindopril with amlodipine showed a greater reduction in central aortic pressure (p < 0.05) in hypertensive patients with concurrent hypothyroidism.
