Avoid salt. Some people are salt sensitive and avoiding salt is as potent as taking meds (in some patients).
The way to diagnose HTN is by BP diary. Check BP first thing in morning (sitting down , both feet on ground). Do it for 7-10 day. If average is >135/85 (both or either number) see you doctor. The correct number depends on your medical profile.
