High blood pressure can be caused by many factors, such as age, ethnicity and gender. Other factors, such as diet, exercise and smoking can be changed throughout lifestyle changes to reduce your risk for high blood pressure. It is also important to regularly monitor your blood pressure.
Your prescription medication can be custom packaged in a small box that holds a roll of medication pouches, sorted by day and time. Just toss the box into your suitcase, and you’re ready to go! When you need to take your medication, simply tear away the next package on the roll.
