PATIENTS hypertension can already control the blood pressure in recent years. This is based on the research already done. Unfortunately, not accompanied with the decreasing number of patients.

Dr Brent M Egan, a pharmacology at the Medical University of South Carolina, who wrote about people with hypertension in a statement of the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that research from a national survey from 1988 to 2008. In the United States, the government is targeting the number of patients with hypertension to control this disease by 50 percent. This target also seems to have been fulfilled.

"The good news is the attention of patients to control their blood pressure showed a significant increase from year to year," said Brent.

Brent continued, the awareness to control your blood pressure is increased from 69 percent to 81 percent. While the number of patients with hypertensive patients who underwent treatment with the right, also rose from 54 percent to 72 percent. Unfortunately, this is not followed by a reduced number of hypertensive patients. Numbers of people who suffer from hypertension in the U.S. is still quite high, even declining.

"The way that we doing to prevent this disease to the public like it's no good," said Brent.

An estimated 65 million Americans, approximately 29 percent of the population now suffer from high blood pressure. Hypertension is a condition of chronically increased blood pressure in the long term. Patients who have at least three blood pressure readings exceeding 140/90 mmHg during the resting state, estimated to have high blood condition. Thus, the control in question is to achieve a rate below 140/90 mmHg. To reduce the increasing number of hypertensive patients who appear, Brent advises the government to set a target figure carefully.

"The emphasis now is how to provide a high awareness about the dangers of hypertension and appropriate treatment of young people in particular," said Brent.

Whereas for adults or older, extension given to control high blood pressure. Brent has conducted research on hypertension, namely, examining the level of awareness of hypertension in the southeastern United States. In this area, hypertension is a disease that easily found in the population.

He also found that there was little difference will be the average of hypertension control in black hypertensive patients with other races. However, very few differences emerged. This difference indicates that hypertension can lead to the emergence of a stroke, occurred in whites but not found in the black population.

Furthermore, the impact of not decreasing the number of hypertensive patients in the U.S. cause the government to ban the use of salt on a variety of American food. As is known, high blood pressure triggered by excessive salt consumption. Reduce salt levels in food, according to Brent is one good idea. However, Brent more emphasis to focus on diet quality. Eating lots of vegetables and fruits can reduce salt consumption.

It also approved Dr. Aram V Chobania, former Dean of Boston University Medical Faculty. According to him, the diet and also active in physical activities, including weight loss, is an activity that is needed to control hypertension.

"If this is not done, the population of people who suffer from obesity and hypertension will increase continues," said Aram. Recognized Aramaic, changing lifestyles of Americans who loved the high-calorie foods is not easy. "This will be a long term process and involves many parties. You could say the job is not easy, "Arman cap quoted from HealthDay.
