A reduction of elevated blood pressure (BP) is an important treatment goal in elderly hypertensive patients. However, excessive reduction of systolic BP (SBP) and/or diastolic BP (DBP) might be harmful in such patients. We investigated whether this was the case with regard to risk of incident disability or death in community-dwelling elderly subjects.
