It’s really important to check your blood pressure regularly. It’s nowhere near enough to only get it checked once or twice a year while visiting your doctor.
Blood pressure monitors are very affordable and the small investment you make will save a lifetime of disability and huge costs associated with it.
You need to be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following 2 questions.
1. Have you checked your blood pressure in the last month?
2. Was it green when you entered into the App?
