High blood pressure worsening in all states for women; begins to stagnate for men
Date:2/11/2008

en 2001 and 2003, deaths attributed to the higher than optimal systolic blood pressure control among females ranged from 200 to 220 per 100,000 in Minnesota and Massachusetts to 360 to 370 in Washington, D.C., and Mississippi. For males, deaths from high blood pressure were 210 per 100,000 in Colorado and Utah to 370 in Mississippi and 410 in Washington, D.C.

It is alarming that U.S. states are experiencing worsening rates for a risk factor that is so easily controlled by lifestyle, diet and medication, Ezzati said. We need to look nationally, but also especially focus on those states with the highest hypertension prevalence and emphasize interventions to do better than last decades trends.

High blood pressure is the most commonly occurring preventable risk factor for heart disease and stroke, said Dan Jones, M.D., President of the American Heart Association. Easily applied methods for prevention and treatment are available. It is amazing that blood pressure control rates are not improving in our country. Public health officials, policy makers, health professionals, and the American public need to respond. With more exercise, better diets, and appropriate use of antihypertensive medications, this disturbing trend in low control rates can be resolved.
