The study included 25 men (mean age 29,24±0,76 years) with Stage I arterial hypertension (AH I) and 25 healthy male controls (mean age 30,27±0,59 years). Both groups underwent 24-hour blood pressure monitoring (BPM), echocardiography (EchoCG) with Doppler ultrasound, heart rate variability (HRV) assessment and measurement of serum cholesterol and its fractions. Analysing correlations between autonomous regulation parameters, cholesterol and cholesterol fractions, and myocardial structure and
