In brief: Lifestyle, Meds

For the most part high blood pressure is related to genetics and often needs medications to control.
But some lifestyle changes can be tried such as a low salt diet (less than 2000mg sodium), exercise, weight loss, stress reduction, and better sleep hygiene. If you snore and are tired throughout the day you need to be evaluated for sleep apnea with a sleep study. Treating this can lower bp.
