Hypertension Epidemiology

Hypertension is a powerful risk factor for fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular disease events. Data from observational studies indicate that this risk is continuous, without evidence of a threshold, down to blood pressures as low as 115/75 mm Hg. Randomized controlled trials have convincingly shown that treatment of hypertension reduces the risk of stroke, coronary heart diseasecongestive heart failure, and mortality. Various studies of hypertension control have been performed in a variety of epidemiological and practice settings. 

Despite the recognition that diabetic persons are at especially high risk of cardiovascular disease, studies suggest that hypertension is as poorly controlled in diabetic persons as it is in non-diabetics. Chronic kidney disease represents another comorbidity associated with both difficult blood pressure control and high cardiovascular risk. Various patient characteristics have been associated with uncontrolled hypertension, including age, obesity, and lack of exercise. These characteristics are risk factors for hypertension itself and presumably contribute directly to difficult blood pressure control.
