This study evaluated whether patients with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) who received coordinated co-located behavioral health and primary care services were more likely to improve health outcomes after 12 months compared to SPMI patients who receive only behavioral health services from the local mental health authority (LMHA) Tropical Texas Behavioral Health (TTBH).The study employed a randomized control trial (RCT) design where intervention participants receiving integrated behavioral health were compared to control participants receiving the usual care provided within an LMHA for SPMI patients. Patients were placed in each group using a randomized number process. Demographic and health outcome data were collected from intervention and control participants at baseline. Health outcome data was subsequently collected at 6-month and 12-month follow-up points.
The purpose of this study is: To evaluate the effects of NEBILET®(Nebivolol), used as monotherapy or in combination with other antihypertensive agents, in the control of BP and in the metabolic profile of patients with essential hypertension (with or without co-morbidities) after 12 weeks and 24 weeks.
An observational double-blind cohort study that examined the association between HCV viral hepatitis, blood sugar level and systolic blood pressure in the Egyptian population
This is the report to assess the effect of supplementation with soybean peptides on blood pressure among people with mild hypertension. Overall, soybean peptides consumption for 8 weeks could successfully reduce mean diastolic and systolic BP through the suppression of ACE that is linked to downstream suppresion of angiotensin II formation, which further decreases the sympathetic outflow that leads to hypertension.
Previous studies have explored the correlation and impact of astrological events in relation of diseases, health concerns and relationship between birth chart and disease risk. Cardiovascular conditions, sleep and fertility were found significantly associated with moon phase. However, to best of our knowledge no study has documented the impact of astrological intervention in disease management. This is a randomised, multi-center, double blind placebo controlled clinical trial with two parallel arms. This trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Vedic medical astrological intervention for patients with mild to moderate hypertension,with respect to decreasing their blood pressure and improving their quality of life.
Sedentary (n=24) adults ≥18 yr with elevated BP to established hypertension were enrolled into this randomized clinical trial entitled, 'Blood Pressure UtiLizing Self-Monitoring after Exercise study or PULSE'. Participants were randomly assigned to either an exercise only (EXERCISE; n=12) or exercise plus BP self-monitoring (EXERCISE+PEH) (n=12) group. All participants participated in a 12 wk supervised moderate intensity aerobic exercise training program 40 min/d for 3 d/wk. In addition, they were encouraged to exercise at home ≥30 min/d for 1-2 d/wk. All participants self-monitored exercise with a traditional calendar recording method and heart rate (HR) monitor. In addition to traditional exercise self-monitoring (EXERCISE), individuals in the EXERCISE+PEH group were given a home BP monitor to assess home BP twice daily (in the morning upon awakening and in the evening) and prior to and after voluntary home exercise sessions. Resting BP, peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak), physical activity, dietary and salt intake, and antihypertensive medication adherence were measured before and after the 12 wk supervised exercise training program. In addition, integrated social-cognitive predictors of exercise that included questionnaires on exercise self-efficacy, barriers self-efficacy, outcome expectations for exercise, exercise intention, and affective responses to exercise were measured before and after the 12 wk supervised exercise training program. Four weeks following the completion of exercise training, self-reported exercise levels were assessed during a telephone interview in both groups. Among EXERCISE+PEH only, self-monitoring of BP was also self-reported during this telephone interview.
This study will evaluate the effect of household-based screening and care encouragement for blood pressure on subsequent changes in blood pressure. The study uses a quasi-experimental regression discontinuity design with existing population-based secondary data from the 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2017 waves of the National Income Dynamics Study in South Africa.
Glucocorticoids are widely used for the treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases. In 2008, it was estimated that 0.8% of the United Kingdom adult population had used long-term (≥ 3 months) glucocorticoids, rising to 3% in women aged over 80 years. The aim of the project is to investigate the dose-response estimates of risk of high blood pressure associated with oral glucocorticoids.
This was a double-blinded randomized controlled trial of 24-hour blood pressure control in sub Saharan type 2 diabetes patients, newly diagnosed for hypertension. They were allocated to receive either a fixed combination of perindopril + amlodipine or perindopril + indapamide for 42 days.
Postmenopausal women have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular (CV) disease than age-match men. Growing evidence from rat studies have demonstrated CV-protective effects of pumpkin seed oil (PSO). The investigators hypothesis is that PSO would improve CV health in postmenopausal women.
