Understanding a blood pressure chart and what your reading meansPosted June 20, 2012 by Richard Foullon, MD
As a patient, one of the best things that you can do for yourself and your overall health and wellness is to arm yourself with knowledge. But while the Internet is a great resource for doing just that, sometimes it can be overwhelming trying to narrow down your search results to only the most relevant of information.
If you're taking a proactive approach to controling high blood pressure and keeping your heart strong and healthy, here's a great link that explains how to read your blood pressure chart. With this information in hand, you'll be more prepared to talk about how to manage your blood pressure with your doctor and to partner with him to pinpoint those heart-healthy solutions that best fit your lifestyle.
