It’s normal to feel worried about taking medication, especially if it’s for a newly diagnosed condition.
If you’ve recently just been diagnosed with high blood pressure, there’s no need to fret. Pure Devotion Home Care is here to provide you with a list of lifestyle changes you may follow to lower blood pressure and live a healthier life.
- Get rid of extra pounds and keep track of your waistline.
Oftentimes, blood pressure rises as weight increases and being overweight can certainly drive you towards that direction. Losing even a small amount of weight can help you reduce your blood pressure.
- Eat a healthy diet.
Our in-home care services in California ensure to provide your loved ones with a meal plan that will fit their specific conditions. This includes hypertension and diabetes.
- Have a regular exercise routine.
Exercising regularly for at least 30 minutes can lower your blood pressure by about 5 to 9 mm Hg. Our personal care services can help patients keep track of their progress and encourage them to continue. Exercise needs to be consistent, or else your blood pressure can rise again once you stop exercising.
