Blood Pressure Basics
  Why Control Blood Pressure?
Sometimes, high blood pressure can be brought under control simply through lifestyle changes—a new way of eating or a new exercise program. For most people, though, it takes a combination of medications and healthy life choices.
  Checking Blood Pressure
Many people can check their own blood pressure at home without difficulty, but some rely on assistance from a family member or friend.
  Blood Pressure and Other Conditions
High blood pressure does its damage without your knowledge. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can cause stroke, heart failure, heart attack, and kidney disease.
