High Blood Pressure Treatment

High Blood Pressure (or hypertension) is assessed from patient to patient and can vary depending on each individual’s health. One of the main ways to avoid developing hypertension is through maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen, although it’s important to visit a provider annually to ensure one’s blood pressure is measured and evaluated. Oak Street Health makes it easy to see a doctor quickly and create a unique care plan for your level of blood pressure.

Where and How to Measure Blood Pressure

Blood pressure can be measured in a variety of places and settings. However, blood pressure can be tricky to measure as it’s sensitive to daily functions such as eating, exercise, and emotions. Because of this, it’s important to understand where blood pressure can be taken and how to measure it properly.
  • Doctor’s Office

    Another common place where patients can measure their blood pressure is at a machine in local pharmacies. The machines also use an automated cuff to measure blood pressure and provide prompts to guide the user throughout the process. Similar to going to the doctor’s office, it’s important to eat a healthy meal prior, don’t smoke, and calm one’s nerves before going in order to have the most accurate numbers.

  • At Home

    It’s also possible for patients to measure their own blood pressure with a cuff or machine in their own homes. For most patients, having a machine or cuff at home is not necessary unless they have blood pressure issues. Be sure to speak to a doctor about whether or not this would be a beneficial step for you to take and to learn more tips about taking your own blood pressure.

With our wide network of senior primary care centers, our experienced team of primary care doctors, specialists and caregivers, and our full range of medical services––which includes hypertension and high blood pressure treatment ––we have your health needs covered.

There is likely not one discernible cause that led to a patient developing hypertension as it normally is the result of a variety of health or lifestyle decisions. High blood pressure tends to gradually develop over a series of years so it’s good to attend one’s annual health check-up in order to be screened for symptoms. Receiving a screening and speaking with a doctor about the aspects of your life that could influence this health issue is perfect for kicking off awareness surrounding hypertension and thus, working on avoiding unhealthy habits that contribute to the problem.
