Blood Pressure Tracker One-Sheet

Do you know your numbers? About one-third of the population has high blood pressure, but millions don't know it! People who lower their blood pressure to a healthy level (the ideal number is 115/75) can lower their risk of stroke, heart disease and kidney disease.

Your blood pressure numbers at a doctor's office are often inaccurate and don't necessarily reflect your health. Instead of getting a yearly reading during a routine exam, Dr. Oz recommends you take your blood pressure regularly at home. Here are Dr. Oz's guidelines:


  • Don't get cuffed too fast! Settle down for five minutes before you take your blood pressure.
  • For one week, take your blood pressure once in the morning and once at night. This will give you the most accurate reading.
  • Take it on a monthly basis, too.

Use this tracker to help you document your numbers. Get the printable version here!

And there's no sensor to determine when the bag is ready, so it'll just keep cooking your popcorn until the set amount of time finishes.
