New Research Suggests Low Carb Regimen Reduces Risk of Hypertension
Take a look at this win-win approach to your health: follow a low carb regimen, and you’ll not only reduce your waistline, but you’ll also reduce your risk of deadly hypertension! Take a look at this recent research from scientists at Duke University Medical Center . . .
Dieters need to have a safe manner to lose weight, particularly if you already have pre-existing health issues. Weight loss and dieting becomes more complex as it can increase the risks of those health problems. People with high blood pressure are especially at risk while dieting since the changes of the diet and exercise program can affect their blood pressure.
But there is a new answer in the works . . .
Researchers are Duke University Medical Center have discovered a low carbohydrate diet is a good method of dieting for those suffering from high blood pressure. The findings showed that a low carb diet is far superior to using any diet medication for safely and effectively losing weight without the risks associated with high blood pressure.
One case study consisted of 146 people who had health complications including diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, arthritis, and high blood pressure. These subjects were able to experience a drastic improvement in health by using the low carb diet to reduce their body weight by 10 percent.
Since the case study, some physicians have added the over the counter medication Orlistat to boost weight loss results and group counseling for additional assistance.
Almost 47% of the participants in the study using the low carb diet with Orlistat were able to gradually reduce and discontinue the use of the medication and still meet their weight loss goals.
The physicians participating in the study were surprised with the combination of the weight loss and lowered blood pressure using the low carb diet and Orlistat medication. Originally, they had expected to see weight loss yet the final results of the study proved to have additional benefits as well.
In the past, patients with high blood pressure would often use medications to address the issue. But with this new research at hand, there is an alternative option at hand.
