Tell your health care provider if any family member has or has had high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure.

Go to a hospital emergency department if your blood pressure is high when measured (for example, if your diastolic pressure is greater than 100 mm Hg).

Go to a hospital emergency department if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe headache
  • Unexplained dizziness of faintness
  • Unexplained blurred vision or loss of vision (partial or complete)
  • Chest pain or breathlessness that is severe or occurs at rest

Self-Care at Home

The management and control of high blood pressure involves two major options, lifestyle modification (detailed here) and medications (detailed in Treatment).

  • Lifestyle options include changing what you eat and your activity level.
  • Quitting smoking and moderating alcohol consumption will also help keep your blood pressure in the healthy range.

Maintain a healthy weight.

  • If you are overweight or obese, lose weight. Aim for a healthy weight range for your height and body type. Your health care provider can help you calculate a target weight.
