Hypertension is a dangerous killer because it can lead to stroke, heart attack and kidney disease. The goal is to protect your important organs like the brain, heart and kidneys from damage.
To prevent hypertension, everyone is encouraged to change their lifestyle such as eating a healthier diet, exercising or quitting to smoke. Medication is also recommended to lower blood pressure to as much as 130/80 with risk factors of diabetes or high cholesterol. Reducing the amount of sodium in your diet can help in reducing hypertension. Also, as little as 30 minutes brisk walking a day can reduce it. You may also want to see a doctor once a month to provide you proper medication and help you reach your blood pressure goal. So the only key is your discipline to follow what’s written above and sooner or later, you’ll notice changes in your body, giving you a normal blood pressure all the time.
