A mega-study following 12,000 middle age adults for over two decades may have cracked the code on how to spot heart problems early, simply by measuring certain blood pressure changes.

Orthostatic hypotension, or a drop of more than 20 points systolic and 10 points diastolic was the diagnostic criteria for identifying those at the highest risk.
Dizziness upon standing is a common complaint for some seniors and apparently can be the signal of other troubles “under the hood.”
