Is There Treatment for Prehypertension? continued...

It's important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. Know your blood pressure number. Let your doctor know if your blood pressure number is higher.

You can monitor your blood pressure between doctor's visits with a home blood pressure monitor. Or, you can use an electronic blood pressure monitor at your local pharmacy, grocery store, or fire station.

Talk to your doctor about your blood pressure. Ask if diet and exercise can help lower your risk of getting high blood pressure.
