Нужно ли лечить артериальную гипертензию 1 степени?

Терапия. 2016. Т. 2. № 1. С. 58-66.
Власов В. В., Аксенов В. А.

Because of the strategy of early diagnosis of arterial hypertension (AH) the majority of patients with prescription of the antihypertensive therapy (AHT) have grade 1 hypertension (AH1). Accumulated scientific evidence on the efficacy and safety of AHT for AH1 is insufficient for introduction of the active therapy, and the balance of harms and benefits is not clear in relation to AHT for AH1. The development of the next generation Russian guidelines for AH management in application to AH1 should take into account the totality of the scientific evidence as well as the perspective of the introduction of the national drug provision scheme. The best way to do it is to introduce more accurate diagnostic criteria for AH1 and the recommendation not to initiate the drug AHT for AH1 in cases of low cardiovascular risk.
