Study findings show lifestyle change lowers blood pressure

Rural Nebraska women, ages 40-69, with prehypertension (high normal blood pressure) were able to achieve reductions in blood pressure and attain normotensive blood pressure (< 120/80 mm Hg) following a distance delivered (web-based or print-mailed)  healthy eating and activity intervention, according to the recently published paper by Patricia Hageman, Carol Pullen, and colleagues in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity.

This paper describes the main effects of a six year NIH funded study conducted by the interprofessional team from the School of Allied Health Professions, UNMC College of Nursing, and University of Nebraska Lincoln Nutrition and Health Sciences.  Complete study.
