dc.description.abstractHypertension is a global pandemic which can cause significant complications if left untreated. The silent symptom characteristics associated with hypertension create the urgency for disease management. The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to identify the effects of DASH diet and exercise on hypertension. The study sample included three, 18-65-year-old adults with a diagnosis of hypertension. The project was conducted at a family primary care clinic in the Midwest. DASH diet and exercise were used for the management of hypertension, and pre and post- blood pressure, dietary intake, and exercise data were measured in the project. The results indicated that DASH diet and exercise can lower blood pressure in a period of four weeks. The reduction of hypertension prevalence promotes prevention of advanced cardiovascular diseases, enhances individual wellbeing, and reduces healthcare cost. The economic burden of DASH diet and exercise is less than management of hypertension within antihypertensives. Future studies will be essential in identifying the barriers that affect the use of DASH die and exercise on hypertension.eng
