Got a Minute? Blood pressure news
I have had blood pressures on my mind the last few days. When Noyes Health offers blood pressure screenings at summer festivals around the county , we naturally get a lot of blood pressure related questions.

Sometimes I wonder that blood pressure readings and/or are the numbers/readings are overrated or misused. Even the article mentions that you get different readings in different settings at different times of the day so the fact that it changes makes 'A' reading that much less valuable.
For example many people tend to make all of their appointments the sametime of day or in the morning or afternoon. So a person that goes to the doctor with every appointment in the morning DECADES ago. I've known people with high bp numbers released from a hospital because of no insurance after being told other tests don't indicate a heart trouble or stroke at this time. And this person has had high bp for DECADES and is PHYSICALLY active including hobbies & work. So if you have insurance or cadillac insurance high bp numbers are ' a worry ' yet no insurance you can be released from a hospital because of no sign of heart trouble or stroke. Which is it-are high bp numbers an emergency or 'odds' for a Vegas booky ie insurance companies/premiums.

Correction, part of paragraph disappeared.
For example many people tend to make all of their appointments the sametime of day or in the morning or afternoon. So a person that goes to the doctor with every appointment in the morning might get a bp number with a salty breakfest and caffeine in their system or nothing in their system at all.
