Low salt diet: A low salt diet and less food on the plate can help. By controlling the size of your portions, you can start to lose weight which may help to lower your blood pressure.

Diet, exercise +more: All patients with high blood pressure are recommended to change their lifestyle. This includes reducing the amount of salt and saturated fat in the diet, losing weight, avoiding alcohol, exercising regularly, and managing stress. If patients follow these recommendations and their blood pressure is well controlled, they may not need any blood pressure medication. Also see your doctor regularly.
