If you are living with high blood pressure, taking action to keep it well controlled will minimize your risk for complications like stroke, heart attack, and even death. The simple process of checking your blood pressure at least twice a month over a period of four months has shown to lower blood pressure in many people with high blood pressure. This forms the basis for the YMCA’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program, an evidence based program that features personalized support as you develop the habit of routinely self-monitoring your blood pressure, tips for maintaining your cardiovascular health, and nutrition education.
