Treating High Blood Pressure

When treating high blood pressure (hypertension), people are often advised to start with lifestyle changes. These may include things like following a specific diet, exercising more regularly, losing weight, and limiting alcohol intake.
 
It can take several months to see if these lifestyle changes have effectively lowered your blood pressure. If your levels are still too high, you may need to take medication. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, beta blockers, and diuretics are some of the drugs commonly used for treating high blood pressure.
