Cardiovascular disease risk. According to the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (JNC VII), in individuals older than 50 years, SBP of greater than mm Hg is a more important cardiovascular disease risk factor than DBP.

[] Beginning at a BP of /75 mm Hg, the cardiovascular disease risk doubles for each increment of. Hypertension is increasing in women. After diabetes hypertension is the commonest antecedent for end stage renal disease which again is increasing in number.

Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness. Epidemiology High blood pressure is estimated to effect more than 16 million people in the UK.High blood pressure (BP), or hypertension, is defined by two levels by American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines [1, 2]: (1) elevated BP, with a systolic pressure (SBP) between and mm Hg and diastolic pressure (DBP) less than 80 mm Hg, and (2) stage 1 hypertension, with an SBP of to mm Hg or a DBP of 80 to 89 mm Hg.
