High blood pressure (hypertension) is the largest preventable and treatable risk factor for chronic disease in the world. More than 85 million people (1 in 3 adults) in The United States and more than 1 billion (40% of adults) in the world have hypertension. It is a major risk factor for stroke, heart attack, heart failure and kidney failure. However, because it rarely produces symptoms, many people don’t know they have it, while many who have it do not control it adequately.

Receiving a hypertension diagnosis can seem overwhelming. What’s more, hypertension affects so many areas of a person’s life, including what to eat, how to move, how to sleep and how to manage stress.

To help you sort through the confusion of what may seem like an unmanageable condition, we provided this guide to hypertension to help keep your blood pressure under control and your health intact.
