Monitoring your blood pressure can help you and your doctor identify any issues early on. If treatment is needed, it’s better to start it earlier before any damage has occurred in your arteries.
Treatment may involve lifestyle changes, like a balanced diet low in salty or processed foods, or adding exercise to your regular routine. Sometimes you’ll need to take blood pressure medication, like:
calcium channel blockers
angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)
With proper treatment and lifestyle changes, you should be able to control your blood pressure.
