Testing regularly is key.
Blood pressure readings can vary significantly from minute to minute. The chart below graphically illustrates an example of just how much blood pressure may fluctuate over the course of a single day.
This person’s average blood pressure is 144/87, but the systolic varied from 118 to 184, and the diastolic ranged from 70 to 120. Many factors affect blood pressure, and these types of fluctuations can be expected. For a good indication of your blood pressure, take the average of multiple readings over a period of days.Important: Please Read Completely Before Use
