NutriGenie High Blood Pressure Nutrition for Windows

 


This program has been replaced by Lower High Blood Pressure.


Hypertension, the medical name for high blood pressure, is a common chronic medical problem in the United States responsible for a major portion of cardiovascular disease.

The success in the control of hypertension is generally credited to a combination of improved detection and the use of antihypertensive medication. However, the implications of long-term drug therapy for millions of Americans are unknown. There are documented side effects of the antihypertensive drugs. Thiazide diuretics, for example, can induce short-term increases in serum cholesterol, low density lipoproteins (LDL), and triglyceride levels in some people. These and other risks of drug therapy call attention to the potential benefits of nonpharmaceutical treatment of high blood pressure.

Currently, three non drug methods--weight control, alcohol restriction, and sodium restriction--are recommended as part of the treatment for established hypertension. These measures have also gained support as likely to aid in the prevention of high blood pressure, particularly for those at high risk.

The software is based on the report of the Joint National Committee on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure.
