weight. When it comes to preventing
hypertension prevention, your
weight is crucial. People who
are overweight should try to
lose weight, and people of
normal weight should avoid
adding on any pounds. If you
are carrying extra weight,
losing as little as 10 pounds
can help prevent high blood
pressure. Talk with your
doctor about the best weight
for you.
2. Eat a balanced diet. Eating
healthy foods can help keep
your blood pressure under
control. Get plenty of fruits
and vegetables, especially
those rich in potassium, and
limit your intake of excess
calories, fat, and sugar.

3. Cut back on salt. For many

people, eating a low-sodium
diet can help keep blood
pressure normal. "The higher
the sodium intake, the higher
the blood pressure". You can
cut back on your total salt
intake by avoiding high-
sodium packaged and
processed foods and not
adding extra salt to your

4. Exercise regularly. Get

moving to prevent
hypertension. The more
exercise you get, the better,
but even a little bit can help
control blood pressure.
Moderate exercise for about
30 minutes three times a week
is a good start.

5. Limit the alcohol. Drinking

too much alcohol can lead to
high blood pressure. For
women, that means no more
than one drink a day, and for
men, no more than two.

6. Monitor your blood

pressure. Make sure that you
have your blood pressure
measured regularly, either at
the clinic or at home. High
blood pressure often occurs
with no symptoms, so only
blood pressure readings will
tell you if your blood pressure
is on the rise. If your doctor
determines that you have
prehypertension — blood
pressure in the range of 120-
139/80-89 millimeters of
mercury (mmHg) that puts
you at increased risk of
developing hypertension.
