Ever since my mom have high blood pressure.. Her BP would range to 200/180 (not accurate).. The doctor would always remind her about this and my mom had her brain tumor operation last 1992 which make things more complicated and right now we just found out that her sugar level also increased.. Do you have any advice on this issue?

It is important to take steps to keep your blood pressure under control. The treatment goal is blood pressure below 140/90 and lower for people with other conditions, such as diabetes and kidney disease. Adopting healthy lifestyle habits is an effective first step in both preventing and controlling high blood pressure. If lifestyle changes alone are not effective in keeping your pressure controlled, it may be necessary to add blood pressure medications.
