What is the best way to control my pressure?

High blood pressure can be managed by following these steps: maintain a healthy weight, stay physically active, follow a healthy food plan with foods lower in salt, drink in moderation and take high blood pressure medication if it has been prescribed to you.  Controlling hypertension can cause a 30-45% reduction in stroke, a 20-25% reduction in heart attack and a more than 50% reduction in heart failure.
