frequently asked questions
Q.W hy are my blood pressure readings sometimes different?
A. Your blood pressure changes constantly based on your daily activities
and time of day. Because of this, some fluctuations can be expected.
That’s why it is important to use averages over time to compare
readings. Because each person is different, it’s important to consult
with your doctor about what your numbers mean to you.
Q. W hy could my doctor’s reading be different than my readings
taken at home?
A. H aving your blood pressure measured by a healthcare professional in
a doctor’s office can cause nervousness and may result in an elevated
reading. Because these readings can vary considerably, you should
take your blood pressure on a regular basis at home and share your
results with your healthcare provider.
