Day 9: Managing Blood Pressure

High blood pressure (hypertension) is called the silent killer because many people who have it don’t know it.

Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80. Know your blood pressure and remember to check it regularly. Doing so can save your life.

Here are some things you can do to help control your blood pressure:
  • Choose heart-healthy foods
  • Manage stress
  • Maintain a healthy weight
Lowering your blood pressure and keeping it low can:
  • Reduce your risk of stroke by 35 to 40%
  • Reduce your risk of heart attack by 20 to 25%
  • Reduce your risk of dying of heart disease by 25%
  • Reduce your risk of diabetes complications
