Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query.
Your husband is suffering from grade 2 hypertension and this is causing him headache too.
Treatment for high blood pressure typically involves a combination of medication and lifestyle changes to help control the condition and prevent or delay related health problems.A normal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower.
A healthy lifestyle is the first line of defense against high blood pressure. Habits that help control blood pressure include:
eating a healthy diet
staying physically active
maintaining a healthy weight
avoiding excessive alcohol
quitting smoking and avoiding secondhand smoke
eating less salt
monitoring blood pressure at home
getting support from family and friends
To make the most of your treatment, it’s vital to get regular medical checkups and blood pressure tests. Regular checkups allow your doctor to monitor how well treatment is going and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. If your blood pressure starts inching back up, your doctor can respond promptly. Doctor visits also give you an opportunity to ask questions and bring up any concerns.
Hope this helps. Take care.
