Take Control of Your Blood Pressure: Common Causes and Effective Treatments for Hypertension

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a common condition that occurs when the force of blood against the artery walls is too high. This can cause the arteries to become damaged and can increase the risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Potential causes of hypertension include:

  • Lifestyle factors such as being overweight or obese, not getting enough physical activity, and consuming too much salt or alcohol

  • Aging

  • Family history

  • Chronic stress

  • Medical conditions such as diabetes or sleep apnea

To prevent hypertension, it is important to make healthy lifestyle choices, including:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight

  • Exercising regularly

  • Eating a balanced diet that is low in salt and processed foods

  • Limiting alcohol intake

  • Managing stress

  • Getting regular check-ups with a healthcare provider

If you have hypertension, it is important to work with your healthcare provider to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. This may include:

  • Medications to help lower your blood pressure

  • Lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise

  • In some cases, more advanced treatments such as surgery
