Ensure that you have your blood pressure checked regularly, it is important to know your numbers!
Many people with high blood pressure are not aware of their disease and for this reason, are not taking measures that could reduce their risk of death and disability from heart disease and stroke. Detection, treatment and control of hypertension is key.
Lifestyle changes such as cutting out tobacco, eating healthily, exercising regularly and avoiding the harmful use of alcohol, are sufficient to control blood pressure for some people. Reduction in salt intake can also help. For others, these changes are insufficient and they need prescription medication to control blood pressure.
