An app with coaching called Noom has shown to "significantly" decrease hypertension over a 24-week program.

“This is the first study to demonstrate that adults can lower their blood pressure to the normal range by using a mobile platform,” Dr. Tatiana Toro-Ramos, study author and senior academic researcher at Noom, told MobiHealthNews. “Our research should provide hope, help, and guidance to people living with hypertension or prehypertension, regardless of their medical history or experience. No single participant in our study had the same medical history yet the vast majority lost weight and achieved a blood pressure level within a normal range by participating in Noom’s mobile Hypertension Reduction and Prevention Program”

The study showed that higher engagement correlated with better results, but as always, correlation is not causation.
