Hypertension Tips

A doctor may recommend medication to get your blood pressure under control, but don't be surprised if you also get a prescription for changing your lifestyle.

Experts usually start with advice about diet and exercise. Watching your weight and what you eat can also make a difference.

Cut back on sodium intake. Reduce alcohol consumption and find ways to manage stress.

Doctors say it's not just one lifestyle change -- but many -- that will make a real difference in reducing hypertension.
