While there is no cure, using medications for high blood pressure (HPB) as prescribed and making lifestyle changes can enhance your quality of life and reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and more.

If you’re diagnosed with high blood pressure, you should monitor your blood pressure regularly. Maintaining an awareness of your numbers can alert you to any changes and help you detect patterns. Tracking your results over time will also reveal if the changes you’ve made are working.

If you have high blood pressure, it’s vital that you listen to your doctor. Remember: You’re a part of your healthcare team. You and your doctor are partners. Educate yourself about HBP and learn how to monitor your blood pressure at home. Armed with this information, you can commit to living heart healthy.

By adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle, you can:

Reduce, prevent or delay the development of high blood pressure.
Enhance the effectiveness of blood pressure medications.
Lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure, kidney damage, vision loss and sexual dysfunction.

While heart disease is still the No. 1 “silent” killer all around the world, death rates can decrease significantly by reclaiming your health today for a better tomorrow. Earlier and better treatment of high blood pressure has played a key role in that decrease.
