Related Statistics
  • Data from the FHS/NHLBI indicate that hypertension is associated with shorter overall life expectancy, shorter life expectancy free of CVD, and more years lived with CVD.
  • Nearly 26 million people (13%) in the United States have CKD, and most are undiagnosed.  Another 20 million are at increased risk for CKD.
  • The prevalence of hypertension in blacks in the United States is among the highest in the world, and it is increasing.
