Summary Prevalence, treatment and control of arterial hypertension in Denmark - secondary publication Ugeskr Læger 2009;171(3):141-143 The prevalence of arterial hypertension, awareness of the diagnosis, antihypertensive treatment and blood pressure control was measured in a nationally representative population sample comprising both genders and age groups from 20 to 89 years.
