My Blood Pressure May Newsletter Released

May 21, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
My Blood Pressure has announced the release of the latest My Blood Pressure Newsletter for May.

This months newsletter includes a review of a clinical study which investigates whether, ‘home monitoring can give better blood pressure control?’ This is an interesting question for those looking to reduce and manage their high blood pressure.

The researchers compared the blood pressure control of those who home monitor with those that had their blood pressure taken in a doctors office. The results of the study were so overwhelming that the researchers concluded, “Our findings imply that it is important that physicians recommend home BP measurement to their patients.”

Also included in the May newsletter is a collection of the latest blood pressure news and stories. Read the promising results released from a blood pressure vaccine study. In addition, new guidelines have been released for those who suffer ‘resistant’ high blood pressure, which persists even with medication and treatment. The latest blood pressure diet information supports a low GI diet and switching to fat free milk.

Nearly one in three adults has high blood pressure, with one third of them unaware that they have it. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease, kidney disease stroke. It is especially dangerous because it often has no warning signs or symptoms.

The My Blood Pressure newsletter is a free newsletter that contains information to help people manage their high blood pressure. It offers support for those people who monitor their blood pressure from home with a home monitoring device.

The My Blood Pressure newsletter will keep readers up to date with the latest news and research and often includes personal stories from our subscribers on how they live with and manage their blood pressure.
