PMID:  19297944     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hypertension prevalence rates in Mississippi are currently the highest in our country. Hypertension treatment and control rates are less than ideal. Our best hope is in prevention of hypertension through healthier lifestyles with more physical activity, fewer calories, and lower dietary sodium intake. A commitment by physicians to overcome clinical inertia and achieve control in most patients will be necessary for us to make progress.
