Since he already has a high level of physical activity, I would say cut out salt and stop smoking. The drinking depends on how much he drinks. One drink a day is not a problem, but the higher he goes over that, the more he needs to cut back. I hope he is already seeing a doctor, but he should go back and tell him the medication he gave him is not working well enough.
