Six easy ways to lower your blood pressure!Created by:
Hypertension; a modifiable risk factor for various non communicable diseases, is a popular topic in the community. I would like to introduce few simple ways to follow to control high blood pressure. "DASH diet' ( Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) is better to practice. Less that 30% of the total calorie intake should be from fats. Saturated fat and trans fat should be avoided. Next level is to avoid much sodium in the diet since sodium is highly osmotically active it will retain water within the intravascular compartment. Weight reduction and regular exercise will help you to reduce the risk to develob hypertension. Quit smoking and drink moderately. Have enough sleep to give a rest to all the systems. Finally medical advice is really necessary to control high blood pressure and thereby the risk for the secondary conditions to hypertension.
