MMWR: QuickStats: Age-Adjusted Prevalence*,† of Hypertension Treatment§ Among Adults Aged ≥18 Years

Thursday, June 2, 2016   (0 Comments)

During 2011–2014, 74.6% of adults aged ≥18 years with hypertension reported taking antihypertensive medication. Overall, a smaller percentage of non-Hispanic Asian adults (63.8%) with hypertension reported taking antihypertensive medication compared with non-Hispanic white (75.8%), non-Hispanic black (77.3%), and Hispanic (70.7%) adults with hypertension. This pattern was found for both men and women with one exception: the difference between non-Hispanic Asian men and Hispanic men was not significant. A larger percentage of non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic black, and Hispanic women reported taking antihypertensive medication than did their male counterparts.
