Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program

Did you know?

1 IN 3 American Adults have HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE but ONLY ABOUT HALF of them HAVE THEIR CONDITION UNDER CONTROL?

This is why monitoring matters!  The simple process of checking and recording your blood pressure has been shown to reduce one’s blood pressure allowing you to have better control of your blood pressure management.  It also increases your      awareness of triggers that elevate your blood pressure.  Did you know that even if you are on high blood pressure medication certain triggers throughout your day can still cause you to have high blood pressure?!?!?!

The blood pressure self-monitoring program also includes a nutrition component to help you develop healthier eating habits and research has shown that proper nutrition, particularly a reduction in sodium, can help to lower diastolic and systolic blood pressure.
