I had my doctor take my blood pressure the other day and it is at the point where I have to start worrying about treating it either by taking drugs or by other means. High blood pressure is not new to me as I was first diagnosed with it when I was nineteen and I am now 39. I believe it is heredity, as most of the males on my fatherís side of the family have heart disease or have died from it. I eat a very good diet and get plenty of exercise, but I still could drop about 5 kilograms. So if you have or had hypertension how do you treat it? Any advice or information would be appreciated.
