Formatted abstract
In a recent article, Chiolero et al. confirmed that the association between birth weight and blood pressure is strengthened upon adjustment for current weight. This phenomenon has been consistently reported in the literature, but its interpretation is still debatable. I would like to ask the following question. Are those estimates useful for predicting future blood pressure or for informing us about the magnitude of blood pressure reduction with a successful birth-weight gain?
