Home blood pressure monitoring can help you keep closer tabs on your blood pressure. Home blood pressure monitors are widely available, and you don't need a prescription.

You can help keep your blood pressure from being high with diet and other measures. The dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy foods.
