MANAGING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Many factors can affect your blood pressure reading. Here are a few simple tips to help keep normal blood pressure:
Adhere to your doctor's recommendations on medication dosage and frequency
If you’ve recently forgotten to take your medication, please let our staff know. If necessary we can take your blood pressure again (later or the next day).
Limit stimulants such as caffeine and nicotine. Monitor your diet for excess sugar and salt intake.
Making these adjustments can be especially helpful in the weeks and days leading up to your exam.
