Your chronic hypertension may be treated in the following ways:
You may be given medicines to lower your blood pressure. Keeping your blood pressure under control protects your heart, lungs, brain, kidneys and other organs. Your healthcare provider may give you more than one type of blood pressure medicine to take. If another illness is causing your high blood pressure, that illness will also be treated. Healthcare providers will work with you to manage other problems that add to your risk of cardiovascular disease, such as diabetes.
