HYPERTENSION & HEART DISEASE
By Dr. Jacqueline Eubany

Hypertension is a serious condition that affects one in three adults in the US. It is referred to as the silent killer because people have no symptoms from it until a catastrophic event like a stroke occurs.

If you have been diagnosed with hypertension by your doctor, there are some lifestyle habits that you can adopt to help control your blood pressure. Some of these habits include:
– increasing your physical activity
– moderate alcohol intake if you drink
– low salt diet
– get a good night’s rest
– reduce your stress levels

If your blood pressure remains elevated despite these changes in your lifestyle, your healthcare provider might want to start you on medications. It is important to take these medications as directed, follow up with your physician on a regular basis. It’s also important to have a home blood pressure monitoring kit to monitor your blood pressure regularly at home as this helps your provider prescribe the right cocktail of medications for you.

Managing hypertension is a lifelong journey that may seem overwhelming. Take it one day at a time and you will reach a level where it becomes easier to manage.
