Blood Pressure Treatment in King County
If you suffer from high blood pressure, our primary health care providers develop treatment plans that include lifelong lifestyle changes and medicines to control high blood pressure; lifestyle changes such as weight loss can be highly effective in treating high blood pressure.
Our experienced and knowledgeable health care providers will work with you to develop a treatment plan based on whether you were diagnosed with primary or secondary high blood pressure and if there is a suspected or known cause. Treatment plans may evolve until blood pressure control is achieved.
If you are diagnosed with secondary high blood pressure, we will work to treat the other condition or change the medicine suspected of causing your high blood pressure. If high blood pressure persists or is first diagnosed as primary high blood pressure, your treatment plan will include lifestyle changes. When lifestyle changes alone do not control or lower blood pressure, our health care specialists may change or update your treatment plan by prescribing medicines to treat the disease. Bel-Red Internal Medicine prescribes children and teens medicines at special doses that are safe and effective in children.
If we prescribe medicines as a part of your treatment plan, keep up your healthy lifestyle habits. The combination of the medicines and the healthy lifestyle habits helps control and lower your high blood pressure.
Some people develop “resistant” or uncontrolled high blood pressure. This can happen when the medications they are taking do not work well for them or another medical condition is leading to uncontrolled blood pressure. We treat resistant or uncontrolled high blood pressure with an intensive treatment plan that can include a different set of blood pressure medications or other special treatments.
To achieve the best control of your blood pressure, follow your treatment plan and take all medications as prescribed. Following your prescribed treatment plan is important because it can prevent or delay complications that high blood pressure can cause and can lower your risk for other related problems.
Healthy Lifestyle Changes
Healthy lifestyle habits can help you control high blood pressure. These habits include:
- Healthy eating
- Being physically active
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Limiting alcohol intake
- Managing and coping with stress
To help make lifelong lifestyle changes, try making one healthy lifestyle change at a time and add another change when you feel that you have successfully adopted the earlier changes. When you practice several healthy lifestyle habits, you are more likely to lower your blood pressure and maintain normal blood pressure readings.
If you or a loved one is suffering from high blood pressure, give our experts a call today and schedule an appointment so we can start you on your path to lower blood pressure and a healthier life.
