New medical guidelines lower the threshold for high blood pressure
Hypertension is now categorized as having a blood pressure of 130/80 millimeters of mercury or higher, while normal blood pressure is categorized as a blood pressure of 120/80 millimeters of mercury.
With such lowered cut offs, many would fall in hypertensive range
The best way to control BP is by making lifestyle changes:
Lose weight or maintain healthy weight.
Increase physical activity.
Lower salt intake to less than 2g per day.
Reduce intake of processed, ready to eat foods
Reduce stress, meditate 15mins a day
Here’s why blood pressure matters so much: as we age, it tends to rise and slowly damage blood vessels, increasing risks for heart attack, stroke, kidney damage and other health problems. “It doesn’t mean you need medication, but it’s a yellow light that you need to start working on your blood pressure."
The guidelines “have the potential of improving the health of millions.”
