Checking your blood pressure at home is easy to do and can be a great way to monitor your health. To get an accurate reading, start by buying a digital automatic device from the store or pharmacy that fits snugly but not tightly around your upper arm. Before taking measurements, it’s important to relax for 5 minutes in a comfortable environment with no distractions. For best results take 2-3 readings at least 1 minute apart and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns about high readings or sudden changes in numbers over time.
