Our expert says:
It is important that your father follows the advice of his doctor. It is very important that he takes his high blood pressure medication daily, to prevent the complications of high blood pressure. He should not eat any salt, as this will raise his blood pressure. I do suggest that your father consults a doctor to exclude heart failure, which might be a possible cause for the swelling of his legs. Motivate your father to do as much exercise that he is comfortable with.
