The YMCA’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program is an evidence-based program that features personalized support as you develop the habit of monitoring your blood pressure. Research shows that checking and recording your blood pressure at least twice a month over a period of four months may lower blood pressure in many people with high blood pressure.

If you are diagnosed with high blood pressure, there are things you can do to manage it, even without medication. Lifestyle changes—including the
simple act of monitoring your own blood pressure on a regular basis—can play an important role in managing your high blood pressure.
