Hypertension (high blood pressure) usually produces no symptoms which mean most people may not even realize they have the condition.
Simple lifestyle changes can greatly reduce your risk of hypertension. Some of these changes include the following:
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Regular aerobic exercise
- Low salt diet
- Alcohol restriction
- Eat a balanced diet
- Monitor your blood pressure
If you do have high blood pressure your doctor will advise of the appropriate steps to take.
