Hypertension & Stroke Prevention Month Notes

Posted on May 31, 2013 at 11:45 PM


Let's take this last week to look at things recommended by the National Institute of Health (NIH) to help prevent hypertension and stroke:

1. Eat a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables.  
Limit salt added to food.  Prepared foods and restaurant meals can be high in salt!
2. Maintain a healthy weight (Know your BMI)

3.  EXERCISE (Dance, Walk, Swim, Ride your bike)  
Exercise helps to maintain a healthy weight. It can also help lower blood pressure.  The Surgeon General recommends that adults do moderate-intensity exercise for 2 1/2 hours every week.

Smoking injures blood vessels and contributes to hardening of the arteries.

5. Limit Alcohol Use

6.  Have your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked regularly.
Visit your Physician for your yearly physical and follow up, if told to do so.

7.  Learn to cope with and manage stress

Along with the recommendations provided by the NIH, Take Care Community Outreach, Inc. reminds you to:

8.  Participate in services and events provided by Take Care Community Outreach, Inc. that focus on health promotion and disease prevention!

To learn more about Stroke, visit our new blog section, "Nurse Denise's Notes"

It is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly.  Hypertension is known as the "silent killer" because many people do not know they have it.  

When was your last blood pressure check?

Was it in the normal range?

What is the meaning of the systolic number?

What is the meaning of the diastolic number?

Do you need help finding a place to have your blood pressure checked or to be treated fro hypertension?  Contact Take Care Community Outreach, Inc.  We encourage you to post questions, comments or share your stories with us!
