Lowering your blood pressure just a few points can save you from heart problems
Study researcher Dr Rodriguez, said this week that their 21-year study on blood pressure is complete.
Almost 4,500 patients took part in the study, which aimed to prove the risk of heart problems and heart disease
associated with elevated blood pressure.
And while the results were expected in that a third of the patients with high blood pressure
showed a 47% increase in their risk or occurrence of heart problems there was something more interesting that came out of the study.
The patients who managed to lower their blood pressure to within normal levels – a systolic blood pressure
of just below 139 – showed the same level of heart problems risk as those that had a systolic blood pressure of below 120.
So Dr Rodriguez says there may not be such a great need to significantly lower your blood pressure to 120…
