What Is Hypertension?
Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure. This serious condition can lead to heart disease and stroke. There are often no symptoms of hypertension.
The good news is you can keep your hypertension under control.
- Eat a balanced, low-fat, low salt diet
- Quit smoking and limit alcohol and caffeine consumption
- Reduce stress
- Exercise regularly
- Lose weight
- Take your medication as prescribed
Talk to your doctor to find the best treatment plan to help you control your hypertension.
