Nutrition and Dietetics/Manage Hypertension with a Proper Diet

Hypertension is the chronic elevation in blood pressure. It is diagnosed if the blood pressure reading is equal to or greater than 130/80 mm Hg. A diagnosis of high blood pressure is usually based on the average of two or more readings taken on separate occasions.

There are several risk factors associated with hypertension:

  • Aging
