Blood Pressure Day

We all know that high-stress holidays are approaching. So, why not we should take advantage of the Check Your Blood Pressure Day to find out what’s our blood pressure is today!!?

If your BP turned out to be okay, then relax and happily take charge of the holidays because you can handle whatever stresses the holidays bring. If your blood pressure is a little high or more than a little high, you’ve got time before Thanksgiving to have a regular full body checkup and check it out with your physician before the real stress begins.

When Should I Check My Blood Pressure?

If you want to check your blood pressure then check it about 5-6 times at different times of the day because it fluctuates during the day. Once you develop a habit of checking your blood pressure and have gained a well understanding of the numbers, you can begin checking it once or twice a day, at the same time each day.

What time should you check your BP each day?

If you have high blood pressure, it is advisable to measure your blood pressure at roughly the same times each day to have consistent readings less affected by other factors, and therefore will let you know how well your medication and dosage are working. Generally, the best habit is to check your blood pressure in the morning and again before bed. For the A.M. reading, don’t take it immediately when you wake up; however, you should measure before breakfast or your morning coffee.

If you are taking blood pressure medication, your blood pressure measurements should coincide with your doses. The best time to check it is before you take your medication.

Why Blood Pressure Vary Throughout the Day?

Let me tell you that blood pressure has a daily pattern. Blood pressure is normally lower at night while you’re sleeping. Your blood pressure starts to rise a few hours before you wake up. Your blood pressure continues to rise during the day, usually peaking in the middle of the afternoon. Then in the late afternoon and evening, your blood pressure begins dropping again. As your body cycles through this rhythm each day, responding to both internal and external stimuli, your blood pressure is affected.

People with high blood pressure often don’t experience this night time dip. Non- dipping is the lack of a lowering of blood pressure at night. One should not take this non-dipping seriously because heart attack and stroke are associated with non-dipping. Your blood pressure stays elevated, and your body is not in the relaxed state it should be during rest.

Low blood pressure, while uncommon, can also be dangerous or the symptom of a health problem.
