Blood Pressure Monitoring

 

High blood pressure is a silent disease. There are no symptoms or warning signs that your blood pressure might be high. Therefore it is important that you monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis. High blood pressure can lead to a heart attack, stroke, heart failure or kidney disease.

Most Discount Drug Stores offer blood pressure monitoring services to our customers. Our pharmacists will take your blood pressure, record it on your personal record and provide you with a print-out to take to your next doctor’s appointment. Each time you come in we can add to your record, giving you a full history of your blood pressure readings.

Your blood pressure may be high if you:

  • are overweight
  • drink more than two standard alcoholic drinks per day
  • smoke
  • have a diet high in salt
  • have a family history of high blood pressure, or
  • are experiencing chronic stress.
