LOWERING BLOOD PRESSURE MAY HELP REDUCE WOMEN?S HEART DISEASE RISK.

In an article in WebMD (1/24, Hendrick), review of a recent study suggested that middle-aged and older women who lower their blood pressure could reduce the risk of having a stroke, heart attack, or developing heart failure.

This study conducted in over 9,000 adults follow for a median of 11 years found that three risk factors accounted for 85% of reversible risk for women and men. This included high systolic blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking. The most important risk factor in this study was felt to be high systolic blood pressure.

By lowering systolic blood pressure by 15 mmHg in hypertensive women, the study found there would be an increased benefit in quality of life by prevention of cardiovascular disease in about 40% of women. In this study, the researchers used 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. This device measures blood pressure both during the day and at night at certain intervals.

Dr. Steven Reisman, a New York City Cardiologist states that at the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center the doctors have recently been using a new in office automatic blood pressure device called BPTru to diagnose hypertension. This may also prove to be an excellent and more practical way to measure and treat high blood pressure in the prevention of heart disease.
