Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training for Lowering Systolic Blood Pressure in Midlife and Older Adults with Chronic Kidney Disease

Is This Study For You?

Let's Get Started!


Participants will be instructed in inspiratory muscle strength training (IMST) during baseline and will be evaluated during a 3 month period to see the effects of the device on systolic blood pressure. There will be a "placebo" arm. Participants will not know which arm they are in.




1) 50 years old or older 2) Women must be post-menopausal 3) eGFR 20 - 59 4) History of poor blood pressure control (systolic blood pressure 130-159) 5) Stable BP medications for the past 3 months 6) Weight stable in the past 3 monthsExclusions include: 1) Chronic dialysis 2) Significant lung disorders 3) History of congestive heart failure 4) Hospitalization in the last month 5) Immunosuppressant agents taken in last 12 months...
