Blood pressure monitoring

When is the best time to measure blood pressure? My mum is on bp medication and would like to enquire when is the right time to do bp monitoring at home. Tq

Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

It is recommended to take blood pressure measurement 2 times in a day. One reading is the first thing in the morning before eating or taking medication and the other reading would be in the afternoon. For each reading, it is advisable to measure 3 times to make sure the reading is accurate and it is best to always measure at the same time everyday. Do not forget to write down the reading into a book to be presented to the doctor later.
