Tracking Blood Pressure: Check. Change. Control.

Tracking Blood Pressure: Check. Change. Control.

(beating heart) – Since I’ve been on it,
I have been taken off one blood pressure medicine. (cheering and applause) – By tracking your
numbers then you’re able to see first hand where
you are in that process of achieving that goal
of where you want to be in terms of your blood pressure. But it wasn’t high. But the fact that it
was going towards high made me say, well hold on,
I don’t want to get there. Because I know as I get
older this body breaks down. So I wanted to know
what I needed to do now to bring it under control. And then what do I do to
keep it under control? – And this program here
showed me how to manage it. And I feel a lot better. – Although achieving a
better blood pressure is the ultimate goal, the
process of getting there, and those smaller goals
were equally as important. – I have been pushing myself to walk. And all of that I know has
really helped my blood pressure. – There were reports of improved diet. There were reports of more exercise, participants taking advantage of guidance in coping with stress as well. – And so what it has done
for me is to make me aware of wherever I am now, I
don’t want to be there. I want to bring it down. – Cardiac advance and is
the number one killer. Heart disease is the number
one killer in the world. So that changed a lot of
perspectives on you know, blood pressure is one
of those risk factors. In order to ensure that
our country remains healthy and that lives are saved,
I encourage each of you to take charge of your health
and to know your numbers.
