But the researchers also found that once systolic pressure drops lower than the 120 to 139 category, driving that number even lower did not improve patients' heart health.

This could mean fewer medications for people who have gotten their high blood pressure within the "normal" range of 120 to 139, said lead author Dr. Carlos Rodriguez, associate professor of public health sciences at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C.


High Blood Pressure May Sometimes Be Overtreated: Study


Bringing systolic readings below 120-139 might not provide added benefit, researchers say.


MONDAY, June 16, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Lower is not necessarily better when it comes to treating high blood pressure, researchers report.

It appears that reducing systolic blood pressure below 120 mm Hg (millimeters of mercury) provides no additional benefits for people with high blood pressure, according to new findings from a two-decades-long study of heart disease risk.

This could mean fewer medications for people who have gotten their high blood pressure within the "normal" range of 120 to 139, said lead author Dr. Carlos Rodriguez, associate professor of public health sciences at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Systolic pressure is the top number in a standard blood pressure reading -- for example, 120/80 -- and represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart muscle contracts. The bottom number, diastolic pressure, represents pressure in the arteries between heartbeats.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
