It's important to monitor your blood pressure readings accurately. Here are some key points to consider:

- Home Monitoring: At-home blood pressure readings can be more accurate than those taken at a doctor's office due to "white-coat syndrome," where anxiety can cause higher readings.
- Measurement Guidelines: Ensure you rest quietly for five minutes before taking your reading. Take multiple readings, preferably twice a day over five to seven days, with a minimum of two readings each time.
- Consult Your Doctor: If your readings are consistently high, it's crucial to consult your doctor for further evaluation and potential tests to analyze your heart health.

If you have any specific readings or symptoms, please share them for more tailored advice.
