Preventing elevated blood pressure - American Medical Centers (Almaty)

Preventing elevated blood pressure

Elevated blood pressure means your blood pressure is slightly above normal. It will likely turn into high blood pressure (hypertension) unless you make lifestyle changes. Both elevated blood pressure and high blood pressure increase your risk of a heart attack, stroke and heart failure.

 

Here are following lifestyle changes you can make to lower your blood pressure and keep it down:

 

  • EXERCISE
  • STOP SMOKING
  • WEIGHT LOSS
  • AVOID TAKING MEDICATIONS AND SUPPLEMENTS THAT INCREASE BLOOD PRESSURE

DIETARY CHANGES

 

  • Reduce sodium (salt) — (less than 2 grams (2000 milligrams) each day).
  • Reduce alcohol
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Eat more fiber
  • Eat more fish
