Here are ten ways to reduce high blood pressure. Just awareness of the need and ways to control high blood pressure is the best START...
 
  1. Know your blood pressure. Check regularly.
  2. To maintain weight you must first know what your weight is or should be. Keep it at or below that level.
  3. Avoid salty – fried / prepared foods, especially chips, prepared foods like canned soups. Don't use too much salt in cooking or at meals. Read food labels.
