dc.description.abstractIn African Americans with hypertension, therapy is best initiated with the low-sodium Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet and a thiazide-type diuretic (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on randomized controlled trials). If the blood pressure goal is not achieved with thiazide monotherapy, a calcium channel blocker, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), or a beta-blocker can be added. An initial combination treatment is recommended for patients with systolic blood pressure >15 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure >10 mm Hg above target (SOR: C, expert opinion).eng
