Diagnosing and Treating Hypertension
To diagnose high blood pressure the physician typically takes two readings at two separate appointments to confirm the diagnosis. In addition, your healthcare provider may recommend blood tests to check for underlying conditions.
Treatments for hypertension include prescription medication to manage the condition. Some patients need more than one type of medication to treat high blood pressure.
Lifestyle changes also help manage hypertension and decrease blood pressure. Many patients experience positive results with weight loss and obesity treatment. Other options include a heart-healthy diet, exercise, stopping smoking, reduced sodium intake, limiting alcohol, and reducing stress.
