Re: Low BP readings
I have also gotten some very low readings once in awhile, but as long as it isn't consistant wouldn't worry about it. Don't know what kind of monitor you have, but I have the Omron self inflateable and had it checked with 2 different drs. to be ok.
Make sure the tube is running down the middle of the inside of your arm and about 1/2 inch above your elbow. Sometimes if it is in the wrong place you will get a wacky reading, as my dr. tested it just to show me. Don't forget, your BP changes constantly but if it is within the normal range most of the time, I think you'll do just fine. Next visit to your dr. have him/her check it out to ease your own mind. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> JJ
