Giving a Low Carbohydrate Diet to Overcome Hypertension

2020-01-23 12:48:50 | BioPortfolio


This study will test the preliminary efficacy of adding a very low carbohydrate dietary intervention to the evidence-based DPP-GLB on blood pressure reductions for lower-income AA men and women in a community-based clinic.


This study will evaluate the effects of consuming a very low carbohydrate (VLC) diet in a sustainable community care setting, in addition to routine medical care, to African American (AA) with pre-hypertension, hypertension (stage 1-3), or cardiovascular disease risk factors. This study will also secondarily assess the feasibility of following a VLC diet in a low-income, AA population.
