What is Hypertension and How You Can Control it?

Symptoms of Hypertension:

As we discussed earlier, it is a silent disease. It may take years to get severe to show obvious symptoms. Sometimes these symptoms are not related to hypertension. They may be due to another issue.

Symptoms may include:

  • Headaches
  • Nosebleeds
  • Dizziness
  • Visual Changes
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Flushing
  • Chest pain
  • Blood in Urine

How to Treat High Blood Pressure:

Your doctor will determine the proper treatment for you after checking various symptoms. Treatment depends on what symptoms you are showing.

Eat Healthy Foods:

To reduce high blood pressure, healthy diet is necessary. A good diet can reduce the risk of complications and manage hypertension.

Increase Physical Activity:

A healthy weight plays an important role in controlling blood pressure. If you are overweight, reduce extra pounds. If you are below weight increase your weight. Doing exercise daily can burn extra fats, reduce weight, and reduce stress.

Manage Stress:

Exercise and many other activities can prevent and reduce stress. Other activities include:

  • Massage
  • Tai chi or yoga
  • Deep breathing
