... ways to prevent hypertension?
Most of the time hypertension is asymptomatic.
Otherwise symptoms may include:
* Chest pain
* Ear noise or buzzing
* Irregular heartbeat
* Vision changes
If you have a severe headache or any of the symptoms above, see your doctor right away. This may be a signs of a complication or dangerously high blood pressure called malignant hypertension.
Lifestyle changes may help control your blood pressure and prevent hypertension:
* Lose weight if you are overweight. Excess weight adds to strain on the heart. In some cases, weight loss may be the only treatment needed.
* Exercise regularly.
* Eat a healthy diet. Eat less fat and sodium. Salt, MSG, and baking soda all contain sodium. Eat more fruits, vegetables, and fiber.
* Avoid smoking.
* If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar under control.

I think both man and women have the same rate of having hypertension. If they have risk factors such as diabetes, obesity, family history, then you are definitely at risk.
