Hypertension is a risk factor for heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke. With more than 50 million people suffering from high blood pressure in the U.S., hypertension has become a growing epidemic. Studies have shown that with the proper use of medication, many of these complications can be prevented. Using reliable home-based health information can help individuals achieve better long term management of hypertension and other chronic conditions.
The use of home blood pressure monitoring is recommended by national and international guidelines for the management of hypertension, including the American Heart Association and the American Society of Hypertension.
