Ann Arbor Y’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program
Research shows that the simple process of checking and recording your blood pressure at least twice a month over four months may lower blood pressure in people with high blood pressure. Proper nutrition with a reduction in sodium and engaging in regular physical activity each week can also lead to a considerable reduction in blood pressure.
Self-monitoring is the first step in managing high blood pressure and medications. Visit with a Healthy Heart Ambassador in the Y lobby to get your blood pressure checked, and to learn about exercise, nutrition and lifestyle changes that can help you manage or prevent hypertension.
