World hypertension day

    Doctors and medical experts may suggest various treatments for blood pressure patients. For some, they may suggest to make a change in their eating habits. They may ask you to include fresh fruits and plenty of vegetables in your diet. It is also important for hypertension patients to consume less salt as it is high in sodium, which can increase your blood pressure.
