Abstract

A REVIEW ON ROLE OF COUNSELING IN HYPERTENSION

Dr. Pranita P. Kashyap*, Babita A. Dodke, Agrasen G. Moon, Sumit P. Bagade, Shubham K. Tadas and Sunil S. Bhagat

ABSTRACT

The prevalence of hypertension is high and increasing worldwide. Drug therapy is effective, but for both "pre hypertensive" and treated hypertensive patients, lifestyle changes are also important. Dietary modification is a key part of these changes, although skepticism about the role of diet in determining blood pressure has slowed implementation of the available guidelines. However, there is now a large body of evidence supporting a role for dietary salt, potassium, alcohol, and body mass in determining blood pressure. Various studies have shown that salt restriction, alcohol moderation, weight loss, exercise, and a DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet can achieve decreases in systolic blood pressure of approximately 10 to 15 mm Hg when applied together of the dietary changes, salt intake remains the most amenable to change. But we must further reduce salt in processed food if it is to be part of a wider strategy to lower blood pressure in the general population. Nevertheless, the message to patients must be that dietary changes made within a concerted alteration in lifestyle can have a very significant impact on their blood pressure.

Keywords: The prevalence of diet in determining impact on their blood pressure.
