What Can I Do About My High Blood Pressure?

healthy manIf your doctor says you have high blood pressure (also called hypertension), you might wonder why that matters or how to fix it. It’s normal for your blood pressure to go up and down throughout the day, but if it stays high, you are at greater risk of a stroke or heart attack. Most people can’t feel high blood pressure, so it’s important to check it regularly. The good news is that there are many ways to treat high blood pressure. Losing weight (if needed), eating less sodium, exercising regularly, and limiting alcohol may be enough to get your blood pressure under control. If not, you might also need to take pills.

Take a Stroll for a Healthy Heart

Did you know walking is one of the easiest ways to improve your heart health? When you walk regularly, your heart becomes stronger, your blood moves through your body better, and your lungs can take in more oxygen. Exercise can also help you lose weight and lower your blood pressure. Check with your doctor first if you have heart problems or you haven’t exercised recently, and start slow if you need to—every little bit helps! Try to get up to 30 minutes a day, five times a week. Ask friends to walk with you, or use a phone app to track your progress. Keep reading for more tips on how to start your walking routine.

Heart Attack? Act Fast

If you or someone you know is having a heart attack, acting quickly can mean the difference between life and death. A heart attack might not look like it does on TV. Symptoms include chest pain or pressure, sweating, shortness of breath, nausea, and feeling lightheaded. There can even be pain in the back, neck, belly, or arms. Or instead of calling it “pain,” some people describe the feeling as “strange,” “squeezing,” or “heaviness.” If you think you or someone else might be having a heart attack, call 911. Heart attacks are scary, but many are preventable. Learn more about how to reduce your risk of a heart attack and what to do if you have one.
