Manage Your Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

Keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol in a healthy range is key to preventing heart disease and stroke. The first step is getting your blood pressure and cholesterol checked — your doctor can check your numbers and teach you how to check them yourself at home.

Once you know your numbers, you can make a plan to keep them in a healthy range. And the good news is that small changes in your eating habits and physical activity routine can make a big difference. Your doctor can also prescribe medicines to help control your blood pressure and cholesterol.
