Study: Many Americans have uncontrolled blood pressure

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Nearly one in three Americans has high blood pressure. And now a new study shows only about half have it under control.

Controlling your blood pressure comes down to a healthy diet, exercise, stress management and in many cases, the right medication at the right dose.
