In brief: Get Family History!
Holiday family gatherings are excellent times to ask family members about their health histories.
Learning about what symptoms, conditions, treatments they had can be helpful. It is also important to find out how their siblings prevented getting a condition like hypertension. Did they eat right stay slim, exercise, avoid tobacco, manage stress? Those are things people can do to try to prevent it.
