Source link Recent research suggests that news coverage of hypertension can have an effect on individual behaviors, as a study from ScienceDaily has revealed.

The study, which polled over 2,200 adults from the US, found that individuals with experience of hypertensive events were more likely to view hypertension-related news articles or television coverage highly. Those same individuals were also more likely to report knowledge of hypertension and its symptoms.

Researchers expect that increased media coverage of hypertension can help to reduce the stigma associated with the condition.

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects more than one in four people in the United States, making it one of the most common medical conditions in the country. People living with hypertension often experience cardiac arrest, stroke, and kidney issues, among other serious long-term health problems.

Studies suggest that the greatest predictor of health complications from hypertension is a patient’s ability or willingness to control their blood pressure. An effective news reporting strategy could play a key role in this process.

By increasing public knowledge about hypertension, it may empower individuals to better manage their condition and reduce their risk of long-term health risks.

This study is one of a number of initiatives from ScienceDaily to provide information about hypertension to the public. The publication works regularly with regional and national media outlets to produce stories about the prevalence, causes and management of hypertension.

In a statement to ScienceDaily, Professor Tom Smith, the study’s lead author, said: “News coverage can play a powerful role in terms of increasing public awareness and knowledge of health conditions, and this study provides further evidence of this. Knowing what is available and what to look out for could be the difference between life and death, with hypertension being no exception.”

The study has been welcomed by public health officials and physicians, with many believing that increased awareness of hypertension can help to save lives. It is now hoped that this result will lead to better communication and understanding of the condition among the general public.
