Abstract

A contemporary approach to hypertension and prevention are covered in this article. It contains important information for clinicians, such as hypertension management, metabolic syndrome issues, lifestyle behavioral management, nutrient issues, weight loss treatments (ie, medications and surgical procedures), the role of physical activity, and pharmacologic treatment. The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) trial eating plan is discussed at length, as well as information from recent trials on hypertension, prevention, and treatment.
