Blood Pressure Kits

Having high blood pressure (hypertension) increases your risk for heart disease and stroke. Hypertension usually has no symptoms, so you may not even realize your blood pressure is high. Taking your blood pressure daily from home is a proven way to monitor and control your blood pressure. Share your results with your doctor. Your doctor will give you options like medication and lifestyle changes to keep your blood pressure in check.
