Abstract

Phase I of the Trials of Hypertension Prevention was conducted in 2182 adults, aged 35-54 y, with diastolic blood pressure of 80-89 mm Hg to test the feasibility and blood pressure-lowering effects of seven nonpharmacologic interventions (weight loss, sodium reduction, stress management, and supplementation with calcium, magnesium, potassium, and fish oil). At 6 and 18 mo, weight loss and sodium reduction were well-tolerated and produced significant declines in systolic and diastolic blood pressures (-2.9/-2.4 and -2.1/-1.2 mm Hg for weightless and sodium reduction, respectively, at 18 mo). None of the other interventionslowered blood pressure significantly at either the 6- or 18-mo follow-up visits. These results suggest that both weight loss and sodium reduction provide an effective means to prevent hypertension. The long-term effects of both of these interventions are being tested in phase 2 of the trial.
