To the Editor: Dr Lloyd-Jones and colleagues1 describe blood pressure control among patients with hypertension in the Framingham Heart Study cohort. While we strongly endorse their recommendation for improved hypertension treatment, particularly in the elderly, a limitation of this work is that it does not examine changes in blood pressure control over time.
