Significant Reduction of Visceral Adiposity in Hypertensive Participants of Doctor-Supervised, Intense Weight Loss Program
According to new statistics from the American Heart Association, nearly half of all adults in the US have high blood pressure and/or are taking antihypertensive medication. Perhaps even more alarming is that >45% of those with hypertension do not have it controlled. These statistics along with the fact that hypertension is the most common cause of cardiovascular disease-related death, demonstrate a need for effective non-pharmacological antihypertensive strategies. Studies show the amount of adipose tissue accumulating in the abdominal viscera exerts a graded influence on blood pressure. Few strategies exist targeting visceral fat as a means to reduce the risk of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome. The presentation showed statistically significant and clinically meaningful reductions in body weight, BMI, body fat, and visceral adiposity for both hypertension and non-hypertension groups.
