Abstract

Background Awareness and treatment of hypertension have markedly increasedin the last 30 years in most parts of the world, but a satisfactory control of blood pressure is still infrequent,Objectives To describe trends in community control of hypertension and blood pressure levels in the small town of Gubbio, Italy. Methods Large samples of the populations (aged 30-79 years) were examined 6 years apart for measurement of blood pressure, other cardiovascular risk factors and knowledge, attitude and practice towards control of hypertension. Data were available from a total of 1125 men and 1445 women with two examinations and 1566 men and 1658 women with at least one examination. Two different definitions of hypertension were used told definition: systolic blood pressure (SBP) greater than or equal to 160 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) greater than or equal to 95 mmHg or use of antihypertensive drugs; recent definition: SEP greater than or equal to 140 mmHg or DBP greater than or equal to 90 mmHg or use of anti-hypertensive drugs). Results Awareness, treatment and control of hypertension increased from one survey to the other, whatever definition of hypertension was used. Control rose from 41 to 63% told definition) and from 12 to 24% (recent definition). In a 6-year period, the average population SEP declined 2-8 mmHg and DBP declined 2-3 mmHg depending on type of analysis, against an expected riseof 9 mmHg for SEP and 2 mmHg for DBP, These trends are partly explained bya marked decline in alcohol consumption and by more common and intensive anti-hypertensive treatment, while change in body mass index, which showed aslight but systematic increase, cannot be considered as a contributor to this trend. Conclusions An epidemiological study has motivated a population group and its medical profession towards a better control of hypertension.
