BLOOD PRESSURE INSTRUCTION

Our dietitian can help you make the dietary adjustments to help lower your blood pressure.

A good resource for this is the DASH diet. You may download a booklet on this from the National Institute of Health at:

Our Nurse Educator can help you learn to measure your blood pressure at home. We suggest you ask us for a recommendation about proper equipment BEFORE you purchase any blood pressure monitoring equipment.

The educators work by appointment for this service.
