It gives a person the freedom of picking their foods according to calorie count plus much more. I was wondering if there was a place that I hadn’t discovered yet that rates the different diets and their downfalls.

Future Research Directions in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - NHLBI Workshop Summary

Between 3 and 7 million Americans are currently diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and the true prevalence is probably greater than 16 million (1). Many of these individuals suffer years of progressive discomfort and disability. With the number of deaths per year attributed to this disease at approximately 100,000 and increasing, COPD is now the fourth leading cause of death in this country (2) and is expected to be third by the year 2020. Cigarette smoking is firmly established as the major cause of COPD, but approximately one-quarter of Americans continue to smoke, despite aggressive smoking prevention and cessation efforts. Better means are clearly needed for the prevention and treatment of COPD, and more scientific research is needed to enable improvements in its clinical management.

Third Report of the Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (ATP III Final Report)

Third Report of the Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (Adult Treatment Panel III, or ATP III) presents the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) updated recommendations on cholesterol testing and management. The ATP III document is an evidence-based report that provides the scientific rationale for the recommendations contained in the Executive Summary.

Limit 1 copy per customer


ATP III is constructed on the foundation of ATP I and ATP II, with low density lipoprotein (LDL) continuing to be identified as the primary target of cholesterol lowering therapy.

New features of ATP III include:

  • Aggressive treatment of persons who are at relatively high risk for coronary heart disease due to multiple risk factors
  • Use of the lipoprotein profile as the first test for high cholesterol
  • A new level at which low HDL (high density lipoprotein) becomes a major heart disease risk factor
  • A new set of "Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes" to improve cholesterol levels
  • An increased focus on a cluster of heart disease risk factors knows as "the metabolic syndrome"
  • Increased attention to the treatment of high triglycerides

Acute Lung Injury: Future Research Directions, Workshop Summary, January 21-22, 2002

Acute lung injury (ALI) and its more severe form, the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), are syndromes of acute respiratory failure that result from acute pulmonary edema and inflammation. The development of ALI/ARDS is associated with several clinical disorders including direct pulmonary injury from pneumonia and aspiration as well as indirect pulmonary injury from trauma, sepsis, and other disorders such as acute pancreatitis and drug overdose. Although mortality from ALI/ARDS has decreased in the last decade, it remains high. Despite two major advances in treatment, low VT ventilation for ALI/ARDS and activated protein C for severe sepsis (the leading cause of ALI/ARDS), additional research is needed to develop specific treatments and improve understanding of the pathogenesis of these syndromes. The NHLBI convened a working group to develop specific recommendations for future ALI/ARDS research. Improved understanding of disease heterogeneity through use of evolving biologic, genomic, and genetic approaches should provide major new insights into pathogenesis of ALI. Cellular and molecular methods combined with animal and clinical studies should lead to further progress in the detection and treatment of this complex disease.

Working Meeting on Blood Pressure Measurement Summary Report

This report summarizes a meeting convened by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and American Heart Association to provide recommendations for blood pressure measurement in the United States. A central issue is the dependence on the mercury manometer as the "gold standard" for BP measurement. This instrument is no longer available in some health care settings. The goals of the meeting are to examine the science that supports current blood pressure measurement policies and to identify additional research needed to strengthen policies. This may lead to changes in standards by which blood pressure is measured and how instruments are regulated, thereby leading to changes in policies to improve measurement.

I am an Occupational Health Nurse who deals with many employees who have high blood pressure or have suffered heart attacks. This book is an excellent resource for these employees. The first 24 pages are informative, giving information on portion size, reading labels etc, the other 121 pages are devoted to the heart healthy recipes. I have purchased these books to give to employees who need more information along with monitoring their conditions at work. I feel it is worth the $4.00 each as it has helped keep these workers productive and healthier.

Last fall, my doctor expressed concern about my rising cholesterol. I stumbled on this website and began using the recipes that interested me, in addition to making other changes. As a single person, I find most of the recipes very easy to make, very tasty, and the nutiritional info is very helpful too. As a result of this and the other changes, my total cholesterol is down 30 points, my good c. is up, and my bad c. is down! I still eat the foods I like but they are now heart-healthy recipes. The doctor told me recently there is no need to go on medicine, in spite of a family history of heart problems! Thank you!

You can always add to the material if you want. HGHH helps you teach "complex information" in a simple way, broken into manageable steps.

This card is wonderful- but it should be termed a "Clinician Reference Card" rather than a "Physician Reference Card"- it could be confusing to the public, as well as other clinicians and mid-level providers who prescribe medication.

Basic common sense information that everyone probably knows, but are in denial about really having to follow it to be healthy. Lowering your blood pressure is so much more important than you know, and take it from someone who knows what it can do to someone and ruin your life, if not taken seriously! Don’t wait until someone you love, does not follow Drs. recommendations and their medication properly and has a stroke! Live changing! Don’t let it happen to someone you love or worst, yourself!

This was very good in telling you how to handle hypertension and how to avoid it. My question is why should we have different goals as to what our blood pressure should be. I would think one goal would be the same number for everyone.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Clinical Research Needs and Opportunities, Workshop Summary, March 21-22, 2002

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common condition, and one difficult to manage. Available treatments, other than smoking cessation, are only minimally effective, and the knowledge basis for clinical decision making is limited. To identify areas in which further clinical research may lead to significant improvements in the care of patients with COPD, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute convened a Working Group, entitled "Clinical Research in COPD: Needs and Opportunities," on March 21-22, 2002. This group of experts identified important questions in the field and made the following recommendations:

(1 ) establish a multi-center Clinical Research Network to perform multiple, short-term clinical trials of treatments in patients with moderate-to-severe COPD;
(2 ) create a system for the standardized collection, processing, and distribution of lung tissue specimens and associated clinical and laboratory data;
(3 ) develop standards for the classification and staging of COPD;
(4 ) characterize the development and progression of COPD using measures and biomarkers that relate to current concepts of pathogenesis; and
(5 ) evaluate indications for long-term oxygen therapy for patients with COPD.

National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Resolution on Asthma Management at School

Asthma-friendly schools are those that make the effort to create safe and supportive learning environments for students with asthma.

Chances for success are better when the whole school community takes part--school administrators, teachers, and staff, as well as students and parents. This resolution details specific and highly desirable policy actions for schools. 2 pages. It can be used to guide state and local school policies. Updated November 2005.

ATP III Update 2004: Implications of Recent Clinical Trials for the ATP III Guidelines

The Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III) of the National Cholesterol Education Program issued an evidence-based set of guidelines on cholesterol management in 2001 (Executive Summary published in JAMA, 2001;285:2486-2497). Since the publication of ATP III, 5 major clinical trials of statin therapy with clinical end points have been published. These trials addressed issues that were not examined in previous clinical trials of cholesterol-lowering therapy. The present document reviews the results of these recent trials and assesses their implications for cholesterol management.

Clinical Alert: Transfusions Should Continue in Children with SCD who are at Risk of Strokes

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) announced today an advisory recommending that blood transfusions should be continued in order to reduce the rate of strokes (cerebral infarctions or hemorrhages) in children with sickle cell anemia who are at risk of strokes. Strokes occur in approximately 10% of children with sickle cell anemia. These cerebral vascular events can be very debilitating, leading to physical and neuro-psychological impairment which can affect motor skills, school performance, and overall quality of life.

I am a woman age 51. I have always eaten whole grain, no red meat, generally low fat, high fiber diet. My latest blood test came back with very high LDL, and I was shocked (at least my HDL levels were high also). It seems that stress can give you high cholesterol, no matter what you eat. Your own body will make it. So get checked.

The cholesterol information is useful and straight forward. The main solution for high cholesterol seems to be the TLC diet. While those three letters appear many times, nothing tells the reader where to go to find a detailed description of this diet.

I haven’t been around for like 40 years or more but I do know that food didn’t use to have all those bad things that are very harmful to your body. So watch out and take care of your body.

I`m using hormones since 1994 and I`m now 63. I can`t think about something more helpful for me than hormones. I hope that this new trend of trying to persuade women to stop taking the hormones by terrifing them with this new research is not a sign of stoping all the research of what is good for women even if it is not perfect yet. It is neccesary to improve women’s life if we want the family as a unit to roll on. Don`t frighten, go on searching and try improving our life.

A GOOD COMPREHENSIVE KIT FOR WOMEN Although a very good information guideline for the mid-aged woman, the drug therapy for osteoporosis and the various calcium supplements available in regard to their bioavailability profile need to be looked at more deeply.

Very impressed by this superbly prepared guide that one could save on one’s computer desktop or smartphone for quick reference. Have already highlighted relevant portions on my copy. The "Instead of...Replace with" is a great idea and so is the Sample Reduced Calorie Menus section (was however surprised to not see any mention of egg in any of the breakfast menus). A big Thank You!

Contained a fair amount of useful information and plenty of encouragement. Some of the example info such as diet or walking plan was particularly useful. A great overview for beginners to weight loss but longer-sufferers such as myself can learn something too.

OK, so my assessment that I am pleasingly plump doesn’t carry any weight with those I love. But do you have to equate health with weight? Now what excuse can I use? Seriously, thanks for the book and the campaign! Chaplain Paul Slater

star icon 5/30/2010 10:47:22 PM
First, the title of this booklet shouldn’t be "Aim for a Healthy Weight," it should be "Losing weight if you are overweight." There is absolutely no discussion of how to attain a healthy weight if someone is underweight, which occurs less often than obesity in the US but does occur nonetheless. Thus it perpetuates the misconception that thinner is always healthier. Second the advice of substituting certain foods for "healthier" choices often implies that reasonably healthy foods (like whole milk, granola, avocados) are equal culprits in a poor diet as truly empty calories in fast foods or deserts. Please, this is like telling someone who is just leaning how to swim that their form in the butterfly is bad. Concentrate on the basics like not eating fast food, limiting portions, before you worry about if they are drinking 2% milk. Third who wrote the ethnic section? Masala just means a blend of spices, not the calorie or fat content of the dish.

This booklet has a lot of good information to be used for class settings and for the individ. I truly like the BMI chart--for everyone to put it inside their kitchen cabinet so they see it often w/o showing it to the whole world. The best is the Moving Forward--setting goals--rewarding success. Very helpful and inspirational.

my husband and I just woke up to the fact that we are both overweight, but didn’t really know where to start. I found this site and it’s given us everything we need to set goals and start losing weight.

We are kicking off an EatWell/Live Well Campaign with members of our local Chamber of Commerce. It is a voluntary program that lasts for eight weeks to encourages participants to loss weight by walking 10,000 steps a day, eat five fruits and vegetables and reduce sugary beverages. Our jurisdiction includes the cities of Barberton and Norton in Northeast Ohio. This interactive website is an excellent resource that we would never be able to afford to create. Thanks.

The booklet is very appealing visually and very informative. My clients have expressed special appreciation for the restaurant section. The BMI chart has been an "eye opener" for some. It is NOT expensive in quantities and clients feel like that they are really getting something for their money - better than black & white copies.

I read this because I was trying to prepare a booklet for my patients. You use translated Spanish that is very repetitive and not idiomatic. My patients have 1-8TH grade education in Mexico and probably would not understand the context.

My problem is using the nose and mouth piece and then tried the chin strap with tubing similiar to my oxygen tubing...still can’t use. Part of my problem using the equipment comes from pre-existing illness. I do think it may help if I can use the machine.

This article contains information that has finally answered my long standing puzzle regarding my breathing problem during some of my night sleep. I now understand why my wife would sometimes wake me up in the middle of the night just to tell me that my breathing was irregular, actually stopping for a long time after loud inconsistent snoring, and suddenly jerking out of sleep or sometimes she would wake me up with fear in her face. She suspected beer to be the cause but I ignored it until after reading this article. Three signs fit my condition: loss of memory (complete loss after drinking beer), feeling irritable and mood swings. The suggested apnea diagnosis and treatment methods should be helpful. My only worry is that the CPAC gudgets don’t look comfortable. I must see a physician. Thank you for your article.

NHLBI Cardiovascular Disease Thought Leaders Meeting Report: Research Translation, Dissemination, and Application--Moving Toward a New Vision and Strategic Framework

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is taking a new direction to achieve a higher level of excellence in research translation and dissemination, ensuring that the results of our research truly impact clinical practice and public health. The NHLBI convened a Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Thought Leaders Meeting to hear their vision of how to achieve greater penetration of NHLBI research results into the marketplace of new scientific ideas, effective medical practice, and consumer health.

The meeting was a rich source of input on three main issues:

1. Developing integrated approaches to CVD risk factor education programs and clinical guidelines
2. Enhancing dissemination of NHLBI-funded research
3. Fostering stakeholder collaboration and knowledge exchange

Other recommendations were:

1. Continue to produce single risk factor clinical practice guidance when warranted and also develop integrated science and clinical recommendations;
2. Work more closely with current stakeholders to help in translating and disseminating our science; and
3. Collaborate more broadly with other agencies and organizations in reaching those at high risk of developing heart disease.

We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children Activity and Nutrition) - Curriculum for Parents and Caregivers

We Can! Energize Our Families: Curriculum for Parents and Caregivers, is a six-lesson curriculum with dynamic activities for parents to encourage a healthy weight in their family. The core concept explored is "energy balance," or the long-term balance between ENERGY IN (calories from food) and ENERGY OUT (calories burned through activity). In a fun and hands-on way, the lessons focus on helping participants learn essential skills that can help their families increase access and availability of healthy foods and make healthful food choices, become more physically active, and reduce recreational screen time. At the end of each lesson, participants are encouraged to try new nutrition and physical activity tips with their families over the next week. Participants later share their experiences trying the new behavior with the group.

The full curriculum is also available in Appendix A of the We Can! Energize Our Community Toolkit for Action.

star icon star icon star icon star icon star icon 3/23/2011 2:52:06 AM
The DASH study results should be the basis for the way everyone eats. Unless you have a specific health issue that prevents you from using the the "DASH diet" you should be eating this way, this is how you should teach you children to eat, this is how you should feed your family. If every one in the U.S. Ate this way we would solve 8 of the ten top health issues in this country. The cost is nothing compared to the price we pay treating the conditions that are caused by poor dietary habits.

I have uncontrolled high BP. Still don’t have the right drugs for my pressure that goes as high as 200/130. Yet still I don’t have a headache or any bad symptoms. I have started Mrs Dash diet over a two wk period and my pressure is 140/90. I am going to continue this until I see a difference.

Jim Fixx died in 1984 (his arteries were plugged with too much cholesterol). His book The Complete Book of Running was a best seller. He thought that being super fit he could eat whatever he wanted. I’ve lost a ton of weight with another diet but this is better for BP and balanced nutrition. No need to take vitamins in an artificial form. The PDF is a million dollars worth of research diet book for FREE!

I have HBP and high cholesterol in my family. My father has had a serious heart attack and my uncle died from a heart attack. My doctor just tells me to eat right and excercise, but nothing more specific. This PDF download is great! My numbers are in a good place now and I am maintaining my weight. Would like to lose about 5 - 8% more weight, but need to excercise more. Thanks for the recipes!

Am 63. In seven weeks, lost 13 pounds, lowered BP significantly. Overall cholesterol went from 250 to 198; LDL from 155 to 125 and Triglycerides from 191 to 77. With only one kidney I was terrified of my doctor recommended medicine. Now she is almost as delighted as I am. Oh, and don’t forget the exercise which I do most days for thirty minutes.

I give the NON-EXISTENT Spanish version 0 stars. I give the English version 5 stars but it is useless for all my Spanish-speaking patients with limited English. I can’t find a Spanish-language alternative to this publication. None of them provide such a comprehensive instruction on how to implement the DASH diet. PLEASE, I BEG OF YOU, TRANSLATE IT INTO SPANISH!! (would it help if I beg some more???)

I discovered this guide while taking a nutrition class. I had never heard of this diet until then. I had been searching for a guide that I could actually follow and I found it with the Dash EatingPlan. Thank-you so much!

The menu suggestions are way too complicated -- they seem to have been written for the 1950’s, with a mommy housewife in every suburban ranch house. 21st century folks often don’t have the time to make a dinner of 10 ingredients! A simpler, quick- or no-cooking version is needed, or seals of approval for frozen dinners that meet the DASH standards.

Like most, I’m trying to eat (and drink) better, including drinking more water. I’ve been buying gallons of "purified drinking water" from the local market, only to discover they have sodium bicarbonate and sodium sulfate in them "for flavor." I’ve switched to distilled water.

Thanks for the Dash eating plan. Doctors only want to medicate, without a search for cause. I’m convinced that even with hereditary factors, good food, reasonable exercise and minimal stress will lower blood pressure. Now I’m convinced based on the Dash study. Thanks for the free download - it made me trust the information more. I will buy books for my non-profit though.

I’ve lost and kept off 148 pounds following the DASH plan. I started out just adding a vegetable or two at meals. Then my husband joined in. Soon we were eating less salt & my blood pressure gradually went down. We both walk for exercise every day. My cholesterol went down to normal too. It took me five years to lose the weight, but I feel terrific that with DASH as a template, the weight loss is permanent for a longer and much healthier life. Thank you so much!

This is an excellent resource. I am an RD and have been using this for years.

Thanks for keeping this resource current and all the hard work that goes into the updates. I love the recipes and often will hand those out w/o the menus.

It’s the only real way to apply all the information available on My Pyramid in a way that saves me time in planning and money at the store, while making sure my family eats healthy meals.

An excellent resource that can be consulted to help an individual take control of his/her dietary intake that will ultimately lead to lower blood pressure, weight loss and overall better health. The $3.50 price is cheap (or Web portal is free); many monthly magazines cost more than this and do not have near the amount of useful information this resource contains!

star icon star icon star icon star icon star icon 5/30/2007 1:00:11 AM
The potassium to sodium ratio is the key. Reducing salt is very important, but increasing potassium should be emphasized also. I have switched to eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and stay away from processed food as much as possible. I am now off the beta-blocker drugs. Why hasn’t the food industry cut back on salt? One can of Hormel chili has 2200 mg of sodium. You would think they don’t care about our health.

I think it would be reasonable to ask pts or clients to spend $3.50 for an excellent resource. If we all did some soul searching, we probably spend that much on a coffee or bag of potato chips, pretzels, etc. The price of a single book is very reasonable, in my opinion and if a pt is motivated, it is not too much to ask.

Following the DASH diet and lifestyle produced many positive health benefits. It lowered my blood pressure, reduced my cholesterol levels and my waist and weight went down as well. This is a common sense approach for anyone who wants to lead a healthy lifestyle. If you want to increase the quality and quantity of your lifespan then a sensible dietary approach like DASH is the way to do it!

I started the DASH plan on January 1,2007. I browsed the site, checked my weight and BMI with the easy charts on the site. I found the easy eating plans and the suggestions for planning my meals so easy to follow. I printed several of the pages from the PDF file after looking through the whole booklet of information. I had my annual check up yesterday and my blood pressure was down in the normal range, and I have lost 9 pounds! I am so happy I found your website and have shared it with others that are interested in knowing exactly what is good to eat and how to watch for that hidden sodium in so much of the food we eat. My doctor said I was the healthiest 65 year old woman she has seen! I combined the eating plan with a 2 mile walk every day, and I feel great because I found what works!
