Age: as you get older, a person can be at risk for developing blood pressure
Consumption of excess food that contains salt or too little consumption of foods that contain potassium
Lack of exercise and physical activity
In the treatment of high blood pressure, a healthy lifestyle with medication for high blood pressure is effective.
Increase physical activity and exercise
Lose weight if you are overweight
Reduce your salt intake to less than one teaspoon per day
Increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, wheat, nuts
Avoid consuming excess caffeinated drinks such as coffee and tea
Take anti-high blood pressure drugs:
For some cases, people with high blood pressure must take high blood medication for life. However, doctors can reduce the dose or stop treatment if the patient's blood pressure is stable under control with lifestyle changes. It is very important for the patient to take the drug after a direct examination by the doctor, so that the doctor can then determine the appropriate dose of the drug. So it is recommended that before taking anti-high blood pressure drugs, check with your doctor first to get the right treatment.
