Treatments For Hypertension

There are multiple ways to help treat hypertension:

  • Check your Blood Pressure regularly
  • Eat a low Sodium Diet
  • Exercise
  • Lose weight if you are overweight
  • Quit tobacco smoking
  • Limit alcohol intake.


If changing your lifestyle does not help to decrease your blood pressure, a doctor might order medications to help the body rid excess fluid and/or lower the blood pressure.
