Effects of the DASH diet on blood pressure in patients with and without metabolic syndrome: results from the DASH trial

Journal of Human HypertensionPor: Fadi Hikmat y L J Appel.   Journal of Human Hypertension (2014) 28, 170–175.

In the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) trial, the DASH diet reduced blood pressure (BP) in a diverse sample of US adults. Subsequent analyses of this trial documented the efficacy of the DASH diet in several subgroups. Although subgroup analyses in individuals with metabolic syndrome (MS) have not been performed, the DASH diet has been recommended in MS patients. This paper is a subgroup analysis of the DASH trial, in which we examined the effect of study diets on BP in participants with and without MS.
