Dr. William Ferrar is reminding his patients to check their blood pressure between office visits.
30% of us have a lower blood pressure outside the friendly doctor's office, but 10% are higher elsewhere and deserve additional medications.
The 30% with a lower blood pressure can avoid medication or lower their blood pressure medicine.
Check your blood pressure one or two times between office visits and write them down. Discuss the results with your doctor.
