High Blood Pressure Is a Warning Sign
High blood pressure (hypertension) is associated with an increased risk for stroke and heart disease, but it generally has no symptoms. So get tested regularly – and use the tips below to help keep your blood pressure in the normal range.
Reduce the PRESSURE
Proactive steps to maintain normal blood pressure:
- Maintain a healthy weight – BP increases as weight increases
- Exercise – keep a consistent routine that includes cardio
- Limit your salt – less than 2,300 mg per day
- Eat a balanced diet – consider the DASH diet eating plan
ACTION: Shop smart – make a list, plan your meals and read food labels!
