Exercise,diet,meds: High blood pressure is very treatable. The most important first step is to work on the basics, namely exercise and diet. Reducing dietary sodium, losing weight, and increasing exercise to 30-60 minutes 5 days a week are key. Modern blood pressure medicines are quite good and almost all of them can be found in low-cost generics. Your doctor can help pick the right meds if needed.
