Managing your high blood pressure

  • Reducing the amount of salty foods (sodium) and avoiding adding salt to your food will help lower your blood pressure

The Day of the D.O.T. physical examination

  • Please bring all pertinent medical records and a list of your medications
  • Eye Glasses – please be certain to bring your eye glasses if needed
