You should get your blood pressure checked regularly to help prevent your heart from working to hard.

"If your blood pressure is normal (below 120/80 mm HG), have it checked at least every two years. If not, follow your healthcare provider's advice to control it. You ay need to eat more fruits and vegetables along with non-fat dairy products."
