Yet Another Study Reports Poor Control of Elevated Blood Pressure

ComentadoPor: Lewis H. Kuller.  American Journal of Hypertension Volume 27, Issue 6, Pp. 773-774.

The article by Sorlie et al. (this issue) provides estimates of the prevalence of hypertension and of awareness, treatment, and control among the Hispanic community. Previous publications from this study have described the study design and recruitment and baseline measurements and the distribution of risk factors and prevalent cardiovascular disease. The reports documented very substantial variability in the prevalence of hypertension by specific Hispanic groups and communities.
