The American Academy of Neurology has published a new guideline on how to prevent strokes and other blood pressure related illnesses.
The guidelines state that blood pressure should not be treated with medication.
“Patients should not increase blood pressure medications, and patients should avoid prolonged or intensive therapy with drugs, including drugs that lower blood pressure,” the guidelines state.
“Clinical guidelines should be used to manage blood pressure.”
The guidelines are the latest step in the process to update the American College of Cardiology’s blood pressure guidelines.
The American Heart Association, the nation’s largest professional organization of cardiologists, said last year it would require doctors to give patients natural blood pressures, which is how the American Heart Foundation defines natural blood circulation.
The American Academy guidelines do not say what should be done if patients are prescribed drugs that lowered their blood pressure.
In some cases, it may not be possible to lower blood pressures artificially, according to the guidelines.
In other cases, there may be no way to lower natural blood flow.
If patients are given drugs that reduce their blood flow, they should not use the drugs, the guidelines states.
The guidelines say patients should not take medications that increase their blood volume, including anticoagulants, diuretics, and vasopressors.
The AAN recommends that patients limit their consumption of alcohol to no more than two alcoholic drinks per day.
