This article reviews the 90+ year history of increasing potassium intake (K) and lowering sodium (Na) intake in the treatment of hypertension (HTN). It then reviews the DASH Diet eating plan as an intervention to lower blood pressure (BP) by both increasing K intake and lowering Na intake. The term DASH Diet Sensitive (DDS) HTN is used to describe those whose BP decreases significantly when consuming the DASH Diet. A method to determine your patient’s BP is outlined that has been found… Expand
Menu scheduling for high blood pressure patient with optimization method through Integer Programming
TLDR
The model of this study involved 10 type of food groups with 413 types of food variables based on the Malaysian recipes and the findings show that integer programming is a good alternative for linear programming. Expand

Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet
TLDR
The effect of different levels of dietary sodium, in conjunction with the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which is rich in vegetables, fruits, and low-fat dairy products, in persons with and in those without hypertension is studied. Expand
Effects on blood pressure of reduced dietary sodium and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet. DASH-Sodium Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
The reduction of sodium intake to levels below the current recommendation of 100 mmol per day and the DASH diet both lower blood pressure substantially, with greater effects in combination than singly. Expand
The DASH Diet for Hypertension
TLDR
A hearty and healthful selection of DASH menus, recipes, even grocery lists, and the science behind DASH, including calorie worksheets and a formula to calculate body-mass are revealed. Expand
Effects of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Diet on the Pressure-Natriuresis Relationship
TLDR
Blood pressure-lowering mechanisms of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods, were analyzed based on the pressure-natriuresis relationship and suggest a natriuretic action of the DASH diet. Expand
Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension: a summary of study results. DASH Collaborative Research Group.
TLDR
It is concluded that the dietary pattern reflected in the combination diet can substantially reduce blood pressure, and, accordingly, provides an additional lifestyle approach to preventing and treating hypertension. Expand
Dietary sodium restriction as adjunctive treatment of hypertension.
TLDR
Observations suggest that modest dietary sodium ion restriction is feasible in treated hypertensive patients and that adherence to such a regimen may permit blood pressure control with fewer medications. Expand
Effects of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension Diet Alone and in Combination With Exercise and Caloric Restriction on Insulin Sensitivity and Lipids
TLDR
DASH diet with aerobic exercise and caloric restriction demonstrated lower glucose levels after the oral glucose load, improved insulin sensitivity, and lower total cholesterol and triglycerides compared with both DASH diet alone and UC, as well as lower fasting glucose and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol compared with UC. Expand
Electrolyte excretion and hypotensive response.
TLDR
The desirable program for treatment of uncomplicated hypertension appears to be low doses of hydrochlorothiazide, moderate salt restriction, and a potassium-enriched diet. Expand
Dietary potassium and stroke-associated mortality. A 12-year prospective population study.
TLDR
The hypothesis that a high intake of potassium from food sources may protect against stroke-associated death is supported, independent of known cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
Effect of Short-Term Supplementation of Potassium Chloride and Potassium Citrate on Blood Pressure in Hypertensives
TLDR
It is suggested that potassium citrate has a similar effect on blood pressure as potassium chloride, and this results support other evidence for an increase in potassium intake and indicate that potassium does not need to be given in the form of chloride to lower blood pressure. Expand
