    Tools to help work toward your blood pressure goal.

    Eating well, getting active, and reducing stress are all ways to help you work toward your blood pressure goal.

     

    Set up medicine reminders that work around your life.

    It’s easy to forget things, and forgetting to take your medicine is no exception. But missing a dose here or a dose there can throw you off from everything you’ve been working toward. That’s why the Right Fit Program provides resources to help keep you from missing your medicine.

    What may help you remember?

    To help remind you about taking your medicine, think about how you like to get information:

       • If you like to SEE reminders, try e-­mail alerts or just marking your calendar.

       • If you like to HEAR reminders, cell-­phone alarms are easy to set. Or consider getting a pill bottle with a timer cap and reminder alarm.

       • If you like PERSONAL reminders, sometimes all you need to do is ask a friend or family member.

     

    Make sure you check your blood pressure.

    Your blood pressure changes throughout the day. Emotions, exercise, stress, and what you eat or drink can change your blood pressure. In fact, blood pressure can rise or fall just because you’re in your doctor’s office. For all these reasons, it may be important to check your blood pressure at home and not just at your doctor’s office. Use the app or download the tracker below so you are able to record your results. Be sure to share these results with your doctor at your next visit.

  • The American Heart Association recommends home blood pressure checks for everyone with high blood pressure. But remember:

    Checking your blood pressure at home or at the pharmacy does not replace regular visits to your doctor. Do not stop taking your medicine as directed by your doctor-even if your home blood pressure checks show that your blood pressure is in the normal range.
