Table 1 ACE genotype and allele frequencies in elderly control group, elderly hypertensive group and elderly hypertensive and diabetic group

From: Association study of angiotensin converting enzyme gene polymorphism with elderly diabetic hypertension and lipids levels

Groups n Genotypes Allele
   II ID DD I D
Control group 260 31 (11.9) 60 (23.1) 169 (65.0) 23.5 76.5
Hypertension group 205 61 (29.8)*# 78 (38.0)*# 66 (32.2)*# 48.8*# 51.2
Hypertension with diabetes group 138 44 (31.9)** 51 (37.0)** 43 (31.1)** 0.50** 0.50
  1. Note: Between the elderly hypertensive group and the control group: *χ2 for genotypes = 20.09, P <0.001, χ2 for alleles = 23.63, P <0.001. Between the elderly hypertensive and diabetic group and the control group, **χ2 for genotypes = 10.62, P <0.001, χ2 for alleles = 22.4, P <0.001. Between the elderly hypertensive group and the elderly hypertensive and diabetic group, #χ2 for genotypes =0.68, P>0.05, χ2 for alleles = 0.29, P>0.05.
