Book Description

Even though enormous advancements have been made in identifying evidence-based lifestyle strategies for hypertension prevention and management, little progress has been made in implementing these proven strategies. Nutrition, Lifestyle Factors, and Blood Pressure compiles practical, science-based information for health care providers to provide effective lifestyle interventions for blood pressure care.

Divided into three sections, the book features:

  • Evidence-based blood pressure control and relevant considerations for real-life situations
  • Special considerations in blood pressure control and lifestyle modification among children and adolescents, during pregnancy, and among those with diabetes
  • Practical tools that health care providers can put into practice in particular settings

An excellent supplement to existing resources, Nutrition, Lifestyle Factors, and Blood Pressure shortens the gap between current understanding of the science about lifestyle factors and blood pressure and the actual implementation of the science
