Hypertension Treatments FAQs

The most common cause of high blood pressure is being overweight or obese. Other causes include:

  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Lack of exercise
  • High salt intake

Systolic and diastolic blood pressure are two different measurements of the pressure in your arteries.

Systolic blood pressure is the first number you see in a blood pressure reading. It measures the force of your heart’s contraction, or systole, which forces the blood through your arteries to all parts of your body.

Diastolic blood pressure is the second number you see in a blood pressure reading. It measures the force of your heart’s relaxation between beats, or diastole. This helps measure how well your heart is pumping and how well it’s getting oxygen-rich blood to all parts of your body.

The treatment for high blood pressure depends on your age, health, and medical history. In general, it is treated with lifestyle changes such as weight loss, exercise, and diet changes or medications that lower your blood pressure such as beta-blockers or ACE inhibitors.
