DEERFIELD, Ill., Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A national analysis conducted by Sperling's BestPlaces and sponsored by Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc., identified Columbus, Ohio, as one of the nation's Hypertension Hot Spots, or cities that have hypertension risk factors and complications.

"The Hot Spots ranking reiterates hypertension's high prevalence in Columbus and reinforces the importance of patients working with their doctors to lower their blood pressure and reduce their risk for complications."
