How To Take Your Blood Pressure

 How Do I Take My Blood Pressure?

If you want to maintain optimal health, knowing your numbers is vital. Hypertension is known as the “silent killer” because a person won’t know they have it without using a sphygmomanometer. This infographic will show you how to take your blood pressure.

If you do not have hypertension and want to avoid getting it, there are steps you can take to stay healthy. If you are overweight, lowering your body weight is the most important first step. Monitor and control the amount of sodium in your diet. Try to get regular exercise, avoid tobacco consumption, and limit alcohol usage. Lowering your body mass index (BMI) to below 25 and limiting sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams per day are perhaps the two most important things to do. If you already have HBP, then health care professionals advise you to lower your sodium intake below 1,500 mg/day.

Measuring your own blood pressure is simple, easy and mostly painless. Knowing your numbers is very important for you to achieve and maintain  good health. To learn how to take your blood pressure, please follow the infographic, below.
