Managing High Blood Pressure with Home Care

Risks of Chronic High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure raises the risk of cardio-vascular problems, stroke, kidney disease, vision loss and many other medical complications and diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) more than 1,000 deaths each day are related to hypertension. Millions of American adults have this condition—yet only half of them are effectively treating it. High blood pressure is best addressed with a combination of medications and lifestyle/habit changes including diet improvement, exercise, quitting smoking and limiting the consumption of alcohol.
