This ancillary, descriptive correlational study examined the effect of glucose regulation, blood pressure (BP), and their combined effects on cardiac autonomic function in 128 overweight-obese 11-18-year-olds. Measures included body mass index, resting BP, fasting glucose, glucose tolerance, and cardiac autonomic function (heart rate variability, QT, and Cornell voltage). After adjusting for age and gender, multivariate analysis of covariance revealed no differences in cardiac autonomic measures based on glucose regulation (p = .319), BP (p = .286), or the interaction between glucose regulation and BP (p = .132). The additive effect of prediabetes and elevated BP did not impact cardiac autonomic function in overweight-obese youth.
