Hypertension in an urban population - who is treated with what and how well?

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This study investigated the profile of long-term blood pressure (BP)-lowering medication in a population-based cohort, and whether treatment effects on BP control or risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) differed between the types or patterns of BP-lowering regimes. In treated hypertensive patients, only 11.3% had a BP < 140/90 mm Hg. Inadequate drug combination and underestimation of global risk score seemed to be the possible reasons for poor BP control. Neither CVD morbidity nor mortality showed any significant difference in relation to treatment types or patterns.
