DIET AS A MEANS TO PREVENT AND CONTROL ELEVATED BLOOD PRESSURE

By Lawrence J. Appel, MD, MPH

Dietary modifications and other lifestyle changes are vital in preventing or controlling blood pressure (BP) in people of all ages: in children, to blunt the steep age-related rise in BP; in middle-aged adults, to prevent hypertension; and in older adults, to improve BP control even if on medication. Lifestyle changes also provide substantial but unrecognized opportunites to reduce racial disparities in BP. In this video, Dr. Lawrence Appel, a leading authority on nutrition and health, discusses studies in which sodium restriction and other dietary modifications were shown to reduce BP. He also describes the results of studies demonstrating the effect of sodium restriction in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease events. In addition, he reviews the merits of DASH and other current diets, and provides specific recommendations regarding the types of dietary changes that patients need to make to prevent hypertension or reduce BP.
