High blood pressure: Eat this 80p breakfast food to help lower high bp risk

HIGH blood pressure is when there is a high measurement reading of the force exerted against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood to the body. Left untreated it could lead to many serious medical problems. Eating this 80p food item could help with the symptoms of high blood pressure.

HIGH blood pressure is strongly linked to unhealthy lifestyle decisions. Eating certain foods and remaining inactive can cause readings to creep up to dangerously high levels. A new study suggests adding small amounts of a certain vegetable to the diet may help to counteract the risks associated with salt intake.

BackgroundThe purpose of this study was to further clarify the relationship between chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) and osteoporosis in a Korean population.MethodsThe Korean National Health Insurance Service ‒National Sample Cohort, with subjects ≥50 years old, was assessed for the time period 2002‐2013. In total, 68,459 osteoporosis participants were matched with 68,459 control participants at a ratio of 1:1 with respect to age, sex, income group, region of residence, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. We analyzed previous histories of CRS with/without nasal polyp in the osteoporosis and control groups. CRS and...

AbstractBackgroundLiver stiffness (LS) measured by vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE) is influenced by liver fibrosis and hepatic perfusion pressure. VCTE-based controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) is a noninvasive marker for hepatic steatosis (HS).AimsTo investigate the diagnostic performance of CAP in patients with advanced chronic liver disease (ACLD)/portal hypertension (PHT: hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG)  ≥ 6 mmHg).MethodsEighty-eight patients with LS  ≥ 10 kPa and/or HVPG ≥ 6 mmHg who underwent simultaneous liver biopsy, CAP...

ConclusionsIn postmenopausal women, use of RAAS inhibitors, including ACE inhibitors and ARBs, is associated with an increased risk for fracture among new users of these medications in the first 3  years of use. However, long-term use (>  3 years) is associated with a reduced risk. Consideration for fracture risk may be part of the decision-making process for initiation of these medications for other disease states.

AbstractOut-of-office blood pressure (BP) measurement is encouraged by recent hypertension guidelines for assessing BP phenotypes. These showed acceptable reproducibility in the short term, but few data exist about long-term reproducibility, particularly for chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We evaluated changes of the BP phenotypes at 6 and 12  months in 280 consecutive non-dialysis CKD outpatients (186 males, age 71 ± 12 years, eGFR 38 ± 13 ml/min/1.73), without any change in drug therapy. Elevated BP is defined as office BP >  140/90 and home...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTelehealth interventions for alcohol misuse may be especially impactful in hypertensive populations because of the increased blood pressure associated with alcohol overconsumption. This review examines emerging telehealth interventions for alcohol misuse and categorizes them according to phases of the treatment process.Recent FindingsEvidence for telehealth cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is preliminary but suggests it is efficacious and increased access to treatment. Evidence for contingency management (CM) is growing, and mobile adaptation of CM for alcohol misuse suggests it is efficacious in...

AbstractHeart failure represents the end result of different pathophysiologic processes, which culminate in functional impairment. Regardless of its aetiology, the presentation of heart failure usually involves symptoms of pump failure and congestion, which forms the basis for clinical diagnosis. Pathophysiologic descriptions of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) are being established. Most commonly, HFrEF is centred on a reactive model where a significant initial insult leads to reduced cardiac output, further triggering a cascade of maladaptive processes. Predisposing factors include myocardial injury o...
