KSHEPARDSON - You can add that measurement by following the instructions here: www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer.
asp?id=11
and select the option to track your blood pressure.

Hope that helps!

When you go to the "My Tracker" pull down menu and select 'Reports', if you scroll down to the third set of reports "Weight and Other Reports", 'Blood Pressure Over Time" is one of the choices. And I am happy to see that both the Systolic and the Diastolic are now shown on one graph!
Thank you Coach Denise!

I was excited about a place to track my blood pressure. It looks like there is the ability to do so as I found it on the reports side. I cant find where to enter my readings so it will appear on the report! Please assist.

As I am sure you are aware, many people cannot tell whether they are high or low.....that is why hypertension can be a silent killer.
For those of us who have been or are being treated medically for hypertension, it is not a choice. And it doesn't have to be every day, but it does have to be tracked.
Having the option to view it on SparkPeople would be a convenience.

I work in a hospital and have the chance to check it everyday. I don't though, I feel people get overly crazed if it varys. I check it if I feel it is high or low but not every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was looking for a way to track my blood pressure and print reports. Blood pressure is not one of the options that can appear on my Start Page and I would suggest that you consider adding it as an option. It is an important measure of health....I can tell you that having lost 40 pounds and adopting a health lifestyle thanks to SP, I am no longer on blood pressure medication. Tracking BP is more important to me than weighing myself.

Also, in order to view a blood pressure report, separate graphs reflect systolic and diastolic numbers.....that is not particularly useful, although I understand technically how those graphs get created. A much more useful report would be to simply print blood pressure results by date, using the actual numbers and format of systolic over diastolic.

Just thinking about ways to help improve things.
