While I may not have serious health issues yet, hypertension runs in the family (on my dad’s side that is) and based on my readings, this is a health condition that is best prevented than treated because once you get it, you have it for the rest of your life.
Hypertension or what they call high blood pressure is manageable but you really have to lead a healthy lifestyle if you want to make it easy on yourself. One way to manage hypertension is to make use of a home medical equipment like the ADVANTAGE Advanced Blood Pressure Monitor.
If you have a hypertensive person in the house then you’ll see how important a blood pressure monitor is. Even people with regular blood pressure can use this home medical gadget to check their systolic and diastolic pressure. I have tried using the manual blood pressure monitor commonly used by clinics but I have stopped trying since I could never determine the “first” and the “second” click which is both necessary to determine blood pressure level.
However, my first romance with a digital blood pressure monitor proved hopeful because with the click of a button, I was able to determine my systolic and diastolic blood pressure level. Most digital blood pressure monitors work with cheap batteries but make sure to change the batteries regularly to maximize the efficiency level of your monitor.
