High blood pressure (hypertension) is a common medical condition that can eventually cause serious health problems such as heart disease, kidney failure, vision problems, stroke, heart attack, and more.
As it is common for people to have high blood pressure for years without any symptoms, it is imperative to regularly check your blood pressure (such as getting your own blood pressure monitor), and to live a healthy lifestyle in both diet and exercise that lower your risk of hypertension.
Lifestyle improvements include quitting smoking, drinking in moderation, exercising daily, and lowering your stress level, which can be done via breathing exercises, meditation, and improving your overall life outlook.
