Do Try This at Home Part 3

As we’ve been reporting this week, doctors are increasingly recommending that those with PCOS-linked high blood pressure should monitor their readings at home to help achieve healthier levels.
 
Blood pressure readings vary. But in general your blood pressure should not go above 130/80. The first number is the “systolic pressure” or the pressure in the arteries when your heart beats and fills the arteries with blood. The second number is the “diastolic pressure” or the pressure in the arteries when your heart rests between beats, filling itself with blood for the next contraction.
 
Technique matters when it comes to reading blood pressure levels. Doing it wrong can give you a reading that’s too high or too low.
 
There are two things to do before you start a regime of testing your blood pressure. First, ensure you have a machine that your doctor recommends. Second, make sure you have the right size cuff – the inflatable part should encircle at least 80% of your upper arm.
 
When you first start to check your blood pressure at home, measure it early in the morning, before you have taken blood pressure pills if you take them, and again in the evening, every day for a week. After that, follow the plan your doctor recommends, or check your blood pressure on one or two days a month and keep a record to show your doctor.
