Learn How to Monitor Your Blood Pressure at Home

It's important to know how to do it correctly, especially if your doctor has recommended that you regularly monitor your blood pressure.

It’s important to know about blood pressure and how to keep it in the healthy range. High blood pressure (HBP, or hypertension) is a symptomless “silent killer” that quietly damages blood vessels and leads to serious health problems.

While there is no cure, using medications as prescribed and making lifestyle changes can enhance your quality of life and reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and more.
