Learning Objectives

  • Understand the pathogenesis of hypertension and Endothelial Dysfunction
  • Review the role of vascular biology, three finite vascular responses (inflammation, oxidative stress and vascular immune function), plasma renin activity (PRA) and aldosterone to select optimal integrative anti-hypertensive therapy to reduce BP and decrease CVD.
  • Review the role of Nitric Oxide, ADMA and SDMA in hypertension and CVD
  • Review diagnostic testing for hypertension: 24 hour ambulatory BP (ABM), endothelial function and arterial compliance testing.
  • Be able to prioritize and personalize the most important nutritional, nutraceutical supplements and life style treatments for hypertension
