How is Hypertension Treated?

The first treatment of hypertension is to lose weight (if over weight), reduce salt in diet, reduce alcohol and increase exercise. Also, quit smoking. If this doesn't help, then the doctor will prescribe medication such as diuretics or ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers, etc. You can find more information here: http://www.thedietchannel.com/How-is-Hypertension-Treated.htm
