The terms of completion or regularity of carrying out medical recommendations for LSM and MT (at hospital discharge, 18, 36 and 54 weeks of observation) were identified. It was found that middle-aged men with hypertension over a long time followed todoctor’s recommendations for LSM and receiving medications on a background therapy of controlled hypertension with multifactor prevention of cardiovascular disease. In this group the gradual reduction in performing of medical recommendations at 54 weeks of observation was not significant (p>0,05), when compared to that of discharge.
