Top tips for travelling with high blood pressure
- Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your holiday and ask for a note confirming your condition and treatment, including doses.
- Activities that involve high-altitude or deep water can affect your blood pressure, so make sure you speak to a doctor before deciding if you want to take part.
- Avoid eating anything salty on the flight as this can increase your blood pressure. Try and get up and walk around whenever you can and sit comfortably with your legs uncrossed when you cant.
- Be careful with food and water, including ice cubes, as these can cause stomach problems that may dehydrate you and increase your blood pressure. Alcohol can have the same effect.
