News: Prescriber's Letter February 2014
 New hypertension guidelines mean you'll hear controversy about when it's acceptable to aim for HIGHER blood pressure goals.
   We're used to aiming for < 140/90 mmHg in most patients...and < 130/80 in patients with diabetes or kidney disease.
   Now new JNC 8 guidelines bump this up to < 150/90 in patients 60 and older...and < 140/90 for patients with diabetes or kidney disease.
   But not all experts agree...especially for seniors. The concern is that the evidence for the higher goal in folks over 60 isn't robust enough...and raising it might lead to more MIs and strokes.
   Consider the needs of the individual patient and use these best practices for choosing a BP goal.
