High Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure
What should I do if I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure?
Eat a healthy diet that is low in salt; low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol; and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. Take at least 1 brisk 10-minute walk, 3 times a day, 5 days a week. Don't smoke. If you smoke, quit as soon as possible.
What’s the Connection?The link between high blood pressure and high cholesterol goes in both directions. When the body can’t clear cholesterol from the bloodstream, that excess cholesterol can deposit along artery walls. When arteries become stiff and narrow from deposits, the heart has to work overtime to pump blood through them. This causes blood pressure to go up and up.
Managing High Cholesterol and High Blood PressureLifestyle changes are often the first step to improving both conditions. Eat a healthy diet. Choose plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish, and other lean proteins, nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils. Good plans to follow are the DASH diet, designed to lower blood pressure, and the Mediterranean diet.
