Recent News on Blood Pressure readings


and to this article referenced below: 

Important takeaways from my perspective:
  • In Canada, “Normal blood pressure remains 120/80. (The top number, systolic, measures pressure on the blood vessels when the heart contracts; the bottom number, diastolic, measures pressure when the heart relaxes between beats.)”
  •  “..in Canada…. about 20 per cent of adults …. are considered hypertensive.”
  • “Right now, we do a terrible job of measuring blood pressure. That's because blood pressure can fluctuate wildly, especially during a rushed doctor's visit. As a result, a lot of people are over treated and a lot are under-treated.”
  • “The alternative is self-measurement. Home blood pressure monitoring devices are increasingly affordable, but you have to get a decent one.”
Personal Note:
After a rather hi BP reading recently in my GPs office, I was sent for serial quiet BP measurement. A week or so later, ten minutes after arriving, I was placed in a quiet room, where the nurse set up the BP cuff. Over the next ten or so minutes, my BP was taken 5 times. The resultant average BP was significantly lower than that taken in my GPs office a week earlier. RESULT – no need for follow up actions.

I have been suffering from high blood pressure ever since I was in high-school and it's really hard to live under that condition. Often times I get tired and it's greatly affecting my performance in school which is a big deal because I am very concerned with my grades. It's too bad that I also had to stop for a year just to get better but, luckily I'm all well now. It’s very important to take care of ourselves because our body is our key to getting our goals in life.

My mother had no history of high blood pressure but she is diabetic. After our flight yesterday, she had dizzy feeling and doctors examined her and said that she had high blood pressure. After a day, the doctor prescribed her blood pressure medicine and after taking the medicine, she became very weak and unable to walk but her blood pressure went normal. She experienced the shaking of her body and as well as her lips. Can u please advise me what to do now? I want to know whether she can stop the medicine now or she has to take it for her entire life as I heard high blood pressure medicine cannot be stopped after taking once because it is a maintenance and continuous medication. She only took three tablets as prescribed. Thank you for your answers, it will be appreciated.

A high or low blood pressure can have a great impact with our body as well as with our daily activities in life. If you are a person who has a high blood pressure, you should maintain the necessary medicines so that the blood pressure can be regulated and if you’re a person who has a low blood pressure you must intake food or medicine that can normalize your blood pressure. See, blood pressure plays an important role. So we should have to properly measure it and take care also our self so that we can avoid it.

Thank you for this educational article! It made me more aware of my health. I have a question to ask, though? How much can I trust home BP machines? I am the type of the person to personally tract my vitals. I have heard that home BP machines may not necessarily be accurate, but so many of the BP machines I've seen doctors use are similar to those you can simply buy in a drugstore. In any case, I hope to see more quality content in your website!
