Active Comparator: CPAP
Treatment with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure
Procedure: Continuous positive airway pressure treatment
Treatment with CPAP for 6 months, pressure will be titrated during a second polysomnography.
No Intervention: Control
Usual anti-hypertensive treatment without CPAP treatment
- clinic and ambulatory blood pressures [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Clinic and ambulatory blood pressures (during 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, which included both daytime and nighttime blood pressures, as well as the nocturnal dipping pattern).
- Microalbuminuria [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Urinary albumin excretion rate on 24-hour urine collection
- Aldosterone excess measurements [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Serum aldosterone concentration, plasma renin activity, aldosterone-to-renin ratio and 24-hour urinary aldosterone excretion.
- Arterial stiffness [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity and aortic pulse wave contour analysis (which include aortic systolic and pulse pressure and augmentation index)
- Autonomic system measurements [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Measures of autonomic system balance derived from 24-hour Holter monitoring, which includes heart rate variability on time and frequency domains.
- Cardiorespiratory fitness [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Cardiorespiratory fitness by 6 min walking test with maximum oxigen consumption measurement and by complete ergospirometric treadmill test.
