NCP Case Study
34 yrs old Mrs. B came to her doctor appointment, BP was 140/92, wt 160#, ht 5’6”, HDL 30, LDL 210, glucose 92, BUN 20. Dietary habit include meals not prepare at home, eat 2 meals a day and skipped breakfast. Pt does not know how to cook, therefore she eat most of her meals outside of home. Pt is unemployed and has been off blood pressure meds for 30 days. Pt has stress due to unemployment. Medications include Linsinopril (for bp), Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ/diuretic). Diet is NAS/2000mg

BP Regulatory Mechanisms
: (Cardiovascular reflexes)
Brain (CNS) ischaemic response
Renal-body fluid control system
Short term: Rapid
Short term: Intermediate
BP is defined by two measurements:
is measured when the heart contracts
is measured when the heart relaxes between contractions
BP is written as

Stages of HTN

Usually no symptoms until diagnosed with HTN. (Some may experience a dull headache or dizziness)
Untreated HTN contributes to stroke, kidney failure, dementia, etc
Symptoms & Complications?
Persistent DP > 115 mm Hg
Excessive alcohol intake
End damage organ
Not on bp med
for 30 days
Diagnosis: PES Statements
1. Excessive energy intake (NI-1.3) (P), limit access to healthy food choices (E), as evidence by BMI being 25.82 and intake of high caloric density (S)
2. Food and nutrition related knowledge deficient (NB-1.1)(P), related to uncertain how to apply nutrition information (E), as evidence by patient report that she does not know how to cook.(S)
3. Limit access to nutrition related supply (NB-3.3)(P), related to lack of access to financial resource (E), as evidence by b.p. 140/92 and patient reporting for unemployment (S)
Skill development E-2.2
Lowering Mrs. B’s BMI to 24, by incorporate physical activity at least 30 minutes for 3-4x weekly and intake of more healthy foods.
Monitoring & Evaluation
In 4 weeks, re-evaluate Mrs. B’s BMI, B/P and lipid profile to see if there are any changes in reductions. Compare the lab values with another 24-hrr recall. Test her blood glucose to see if she is at risk for diabetes.
Cognitive-behavioral theory C-1.1
Increase Mrs. B’s nutrition knowledge by offering nutrition counseling for 15-20 minutes/ 2x weekly, until Mrs. B know how to choose the foods that can her help to decrease of her LDL.
Referral to community agency/program RC-1.6
Increase Mrs. B’s healthy food consumption at least 3-4x weekly, through referral to DHS-SNAP program and unemployment program.
At 3 months, follow up with Mrs. B lab results, BMI and B/P, if these measurements with significant change, then it reveal Mrs. B in compliance with the recommended diet and exercise plan. If Mrs. B’s lab and other measurement remains the same with slightly change, then this mean she is not following her recommendations.

Perform any moderate- to vigorous-intensity aerobic activity using the following guidelines:
For most healthy people, get the equivalent of at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) per week of moderate-intensity physical activity, such as brisk walking.
If you need to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol, aim for 40 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity 3 to 4 times per week.
You can incorporate your weekly physical activity with 30 minutes a day on at least 5 days a week.
Physical activity should be performed in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably, it should be spread throughout the week.
Include flexibility and stretching exercises.
Include muscle strengthening activity at least 2 days each week.
There are eight main ways you can control your blood pressure.
Eat a better diet; the DASH diet
Enjoy regular physical activity
Maintain a healthy weight
Avoid tobacco smoke
Comply with medication prescriptions
If you drink, limit alcohol
Understand hot tub safety

HTN & Sodium
Sodium Health Claims
17 studies demonstrate the benefit of reducing dietary sodium intake for lowering blood pressure.
A sodium intake of less than 2,300mg per day and further reduction of sodium intake to 1,600mg may have additional blood pressure-lowering effects, especially when combined with the DASH dietary pattern.
Duration: 18mo to 30 mo
Population: 40 to 23,104 subjects
USDA Food Survey: Sodium Intake for 2007-2008
Six studies report that a one-time dose of caffeine (200-300 mg) raises blood pressure, by 3 to 12 mmHg in systolic blood pressure and 3 to 4 mmHg in diastolic blood pressure.
Two studies report that the effect of habitual consumption of caffeine on blood pressure is unclear.
Limitation: small sample size, unknown diet & smoking status, difference products
