Health InformationListen to your body. Take control of your health and live a fuller life
OMRON wants everyone to live a normal, healthy and well-balanced life. The key is health management. We all need to take responsibility for our own health.
Why is it a good thing to measure blood pressure at homeHaving your Blood pressure measured by a doctor can cause anxiety which is itself a cause of high blood pressure. As a variety of conditions affect blood pressure, a single measurement may not be sufficient for an accurate diagnosis.
Many factors such as physical activity, anxiety or the time of a day, can influence your blood pressure. Thus it is best to try and measure your blood pressure at the same time each day, to get an accurate indication of any changes in blood pressure. Blood pressure is typically low in the morning and increases from afternoon to evening. It is lower in the summer and higher in the winter.
