Our expert says:
Eating healthy, losing weight if you are overweight, exercising and reducing salt intake may help to reduce blood pressure. However, you should rather have your blood pressure checked daily at the same place for a week and work out the average to determine if you really have hypertension. If you have a strong family history of hypertension, you may need to use medication if the life style changes does not help.
