Hello Anonymous,
High blood pressure or hypertension risk factors include obesity, consuming too much alcohol. smoking and family history. Treatment ranges from lifestyle changes to medication.

Physicians will prescribe medication to lower blood pressure. These drugs include calcium channel blockers, ACE or angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, diuretics, and bets blockers. In the last decade, many Americans with hypertension started using omega-3 fish oil supplements.

Lifestyle changes to prevent hypertension and/or manage high blood pressure include eating a healthy diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and limiting fatty foods, reducing salt intake, engaging in regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight. managing stress, quit smoking,and limiting alcohol intake.

The size and location of the fibroids, along with your medical history, will determine the treatment options available to you. In some cases, doing nothing is the option of choice, while medications, ablation or a hysterectomy may be the treatment plan.

Anonymous, have I answered your questions satisfactorily,
