Watching Your Blood Pressure

    High blood pressure is a sneaky ailment. The condition has no symptoms that you can see or feel. Having your blood pressure checked is the only way to know if it is high.

  2. Checking Your Blood Pressure at Home

    Home blood pressure monitoring can be a good way for you and your doctor to learn how your blood pressure changes during the day.

  3. Checking Your Own Blood Pressure

    Did you know you can purchase your own blood pressure monitor and check the reading yourself at home?

  4. Heart Disease: How Disease Management Helps

    Participating in a disease management program gives you the chance to ask questions about exercise, medication, diet, and other treatment options.

  5. Managing Hypertension With the DASH Diet

    A study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that following the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet reduced blood pressure. This diet is low in saturated fat, cholesterol and total fat and emphasizes fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products.

  6. Managing Prehypertension Without Drugs

    Even if your blood pressure is normal or high-normal, you're still at increased risk for hypertension (high blood pressure), the condition in which your heart works too hard and the resulting forceful blood flow harms arteries.
