My husband was diagnosed with high blood presure today. Any tips on ways to lower it and what kind of diet is he going to have to eat? I have no knowledge of dealing with high blood pressure.

i have read that decreasing sodium intake can help, but i am not sure how true it is. you can ask your husband's physician for more info. usually, doctor's offices have little pamphlets on HBP.
