emoticon It is very important to take a reading in the am and in the pm. Normally our BP is lower in the AM so the reading in the evening will give you a better idea of how you are doing. Limiting salt, losing weight and exercise are important, but you may still have to depend on meds to keep the BP under control. Our bodies are all different, there is no one size fits all.

emoticon Home BP monitoring systems vary in reliability. My doctor recommended using a system the monitors the upper arm pressure. Once a day at the same time. Salt intake can be a factor. Cutting back on your salt may help. Maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly all can affect pressure. However, some people have genetic factors and need medication to control their BP. There is a wealth of information on this site, especially the articles from the Spark experts. The blogs from members can be helpful but we are not doctors and should be used for information about individual experiences.

Welcome to Spark.
There is a place to input your blood pressure on Spark it is printable so you can get a list for your Dr. I was off B P meds after losing weight and EXERCISING. I also try to De stress for a few minutes a day and also I like to breath deep and slow when I stop at a traffic light in the car. It works for me.

MY DH had a problem stopping breathing in the night. He has had a C-PAP machine for 20 years and his Dr. said he was pleased he got it even when it was much more expensive than they are now. Since then insurances and Medicare covers a lot of the cost. If you know you snore your Dr. should know about that, he most likely has asked you otherwise ask him about it so many patients have them these days. It is just my thoughts I am not a Dr. but these things have helped my DH for many years.

Hope fully your Dr . has talked to you about having a Sleep study.
Exercise and weight loss are often the key to lowering your BP for any people but DH is like you, his Dad passed it down to you. You are very smart to do this now.

I am 57 and was diagnosed with high blood pressure before the age of 40. Am currently on two different medications for it - Atacand Plus and Coversyl. I try to remember to take readings twice a day - morning and night, but am not always successful. I use a wrist monitor and take reading in both wrist. This morning my readings at 8AM were for left wrist 121/71 and for right side 126/80. Want to lose weight to be heart healthy and so that I do not end up on 5 different BP meds like my Dad.

We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.
