To Get An Accurate BP
Take your blood pressure around an hour after you get up, before taking your medicines. If it’s high, check it again an hour after you take your medicines. Avoid doing anything that might raise your BP before you check it (e.g, drinking caffeinated beverages, smoking, exercising, and taking medicines that raise BP. Urinate first, as a full bladder also can raise BP. Sit in a comfortable chair, with good back and arm support, and relax for a minute before measuring your BP. Avoid moving or talking while taking the reading.
