Are You or a Loved One Living with Hypertension?

Are You or a Loved One Living with Hypertension?

Having high blood pressure can be scary, but luckily there are things that can be done to manage high blood pressure.

The American Heart Association recommends:

  • Eating a heart healthy diet full of omega 3s (e.g. salmon, avocados, walnuts, etc.), fiber, fruits and vegetables
  • Maintaining appropriate sodium intake
    • 2,300 mg/day (~1 tsp of salt)
  • Enjoying daily physical activity and avoiding a sedentary lifestyle
  • Managing stress with self-care
  • Avoiding nicotine
  • Medication compliance
  • Limiting alcohol consumption

Having high blood pressure will require some lifestyle changes that will improve your quality of life. Because these lifestyle changes might be difficult for some, it is important to have your closest family and friends involved to help with these changes.

The WellHealth Worx team is also here to support you! Schedule an appointment on your patient portal or call at 317-612-3193.
