HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is understandable to be concerned , you are worried about the possible effects this would have on your life and the potential complications but it is important to remember that you can take control of this situation.
is treatable,it requires lifestyle changes and medication.
You would need to examine your diet and level of activity.
(1) It is important to reduce the salt that you use, not just table salt but look at the spices and can foods because they may contain salt.
(2)Use alot of fruits and vegetables, they should comprise half of your plate for your main meals and be a part of any snacks you use.
(3)Decrease your use of any sodas, fruit drinks and alcohol. These drinks add empty calories, increase weight which would affect blood pressure and they also contribute to fatty liver
(4)Decrease your use of fried foods , fast foods and other unhealthy foods
(5) there is a diet called the DASH diet
that is recommended for persons with hypertension, you may want to look into it.
Exercise,it may not be possible to do 30 mins all at once but you can divide it into three 10 minute segments.
Take any medication that is prescribed.
This is not a death sentence once you take care of your self. In some ways it is an opportunity to adopt a lifestyle change.
I hope this helps
