High blood pressure: See fp to make sure it's really elevated. Discuss whether you're under much stress at work/home. Use a lot of salt or eat highly salted/processed foods? Overweight/obese? Eat healthful foods; limit salt intake (use other spices for flavor); exercise (walking/pool exercises); consider yoga/tai chi for exercise, breathing control, meditation. If BP is consistently elevated, doc will rx med to lower.
