Now more than ever, it is important that we consider the nature of our health. According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in America which claims the lives of 800,000 Americans yearly. It is also the second leading cause of death in Canada affecting more than 1.6 million Canadians.
There are many causes attributed to heart disease, and surprisingly many of us don’t take this issue as seriously as we should.
High blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and even heart failure, making it difficult for family members to deal with a loss of a loved one.
Finding the time to see your family doctor can be a challenge and with a hectic work life, many North Americans do not get regular check ups. Some of us, head to the nearest retailer to pick up an off the shelf, blood pressure monitoring device.
But, some of these devices are either poorly built, displaying inaccurate readings or expensive.
Some smartphones will measure your heart rate, which is important, but a higher blood pressure rate is more dangerous than a high rate. Therefore we need to consider more carefully our blood pressure results.
Sphygmomanometers which are found in doctors offices are great, but they don’t give you any in-depth insights unless you are sitting down with your doctor and he or she pulls up your chart history.
