Show Notes

With "new" recommended standards for blood pressure, your blood pressure is HIGH if it tops 130/80. The previous standard was 140/90. While you're trending in the wrong direction, you're definitely not in "unhealthy" territory... yet.

This lowered threshold for diagnosing high blood pressure from 140/90 now means that nearly half of the U.S. population will be considered as having high blood pressure, with the greatest impact on younger people.

But what if your blood pressure if artificially being made to look higher than it really is?

Clinicians aren't taking enough care to make an important measurement when it comes to your health: measuring blood pressure values.

Having an accurate measure is important because more people than ever are keeping a close eye on their blood pressure and trying to keep it in a healthy range through diet, exercise, and if necessary... medications.
