Blood Pressure:
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a major risk factor or stroke. 'Essential' high blood pressure, or high blood pressure with no known cause, can't be cured but it can be managed. It's important to maintain a diet that is low in sodium, get plenty of exercise, and try to lose weight.
