There are studies showing the relationship between high adiposity and hypertension, none about the lipodystrophy in spontaneously hypertensive rats. We analyzed body weight, food intake, white fat pads and morphometry of isolated adipocytes from fed rats in two different hypertensive rat models, induced and genetic. Hypertensive models were lighter, intake less food and shower lower adiposity than controls, and the genetic control was heavier and consumed less food than Wistar.
