Abstract

A randomized controlled multicenter trial of nonpharmacologic intervention in elderly with treated hypertension concluded that reduced sodium intake and weight loss are feasible, effective, and safe nonpharmacologic treatments for hypertension. This and other trials provide compelling evidence that a variety of dietary interventions are important in the prevention and treatment of hypertension in all age groups.
