HYPERTENSION MEDICATIONS VERSUS DIET AND EXERCISE 2Hypertension Medications versus Diet and ExerciseAbstractThe occurrence of frequent cases of hypertension (HTN) has escalated over the last ten years. Even though this pandemic is prevalent among all the age groups, the study conducted by Buford (2016) indicates that the aging population is majorly affected by high blood pressure (HBP) as compared to other communities. Persons with significant hypertension are those victims ranging between fifty and seventy years of age. Cohen & Mello (2018) found substantial evidenced-based criteria that illustrate how people are embracing the essence of healthy diets while taking part in physical exercise decrease death rates originating from high blood pressure. World Health Organization (WHO) indicate that eighty percent of cardiovascular disorders prevent HTN if people participate in rigorous physical fitness, a practice that warrants the guidance of consuming healthy food.The World Health Organization is a universal agency that identified people ranging between fifty and seventy years of age at risk of developing hypertension. Research discovery can utilize statistics to project the future outcomes of this malaise. Consequently, Gurarya, London & Gurarya (2014) thoroughly outline fundamental considerations modeling the ethical aspects within society before building conclusions regarding the impact of diet and exercise versus angiotensin-converting enzymes (ACE) inhibitors to lessen blood pressure and decrease hospitalizations in a period of three to six months. Medical practitioners are required to follow through with medical check-ups among the elderly patients to determine if their blood pressure (BP) is normal or above the expected levels. Older people are presumed to have HTN when their systolic blood BP is equivalent to or greater

The research from Health and Human Services (HHS) and clinical research from the Health Insurance Portability Act (HIPAA) indicate variant findings of this malaise (HHS.gov.2019). Results from the HHS and HIPPA reveal that increases in BP are likely to intensify with the increase in age. Various interventions have been developed to prevent and also cure cases of hypertension. For the case ofprevention, the society has been advised to become involved in physical fitness (HHS, 2017).Consequently, Buford (2016) has highlighted the urgency to practice healthy eating habitsto prevent the circumstances of high blood pressure among individuals between fifty and seventyyears of age. In this paper, it is evident that a diet consisting of healthy grains, reduced sodium, increased fruits and vegetables, and reduced alcohol intake are among the dietary
