    Abstract : Background: High blood pressure (BP) is the leading risk factor for disease and mortality worldwide. However, risks associated with high BP in very old age (≥ 80 or ≥ 85 years) are not entirely understood, as the majority of scientific studies have been performed with younger populations and existing scientific knowledge about very old individuals is sometimes contradictory.

    Abstract : The general conception is that blood pressure increases with age, but that diastolic blood pressure (DBP) starts decreasing in the elderly. There are, however, indications that systolic blood pressure (SBP) might also decline in advanced age, but further studies are needed to establish whether this is true. READ MORE

    Abstract : To examine cardiovascular disease risk factors, control of hypertension and survival in patients with hypertension treated in primary care, patients with hypertension and/or type 2 diabetes were surveyed for cardiovascular disease risk factors and treatment 1992-1993. For reference, a random population sample from the same community was surveyed 1993-1994. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic predisposition to salt sensitivity and cardiovascular disease

    Abstract : Abstract The average amount of salt ingested is about 10 grams daily compared to less than one gram in pre-historic life. Salt, althought somewhat debated, is considered a risk factor for elevated blood pressure and end organ damage beyond the blood pressure effect. READ MORE
