Talking Recording BP Readings

Hi all, I have more than a years worth of BP readings which i summarise by month. Up until recent i have seen my doc once every quarter, i take my monthly readings with me for him to see. Recently i have started recording BP readings after exercise so that i can determine my peak values.

My question is should i let these readings post-exercise be included in my monthly averages, or should i consider this completely separately?
If i include them my MEAN results will be increased and i am unsure if this is a true representation on my BP.

Any views will be great.

Re: Recording BP Readings


I keep "experimental" readings entirely OUT of my long term averages.
Likewise, I keep separate trials (one drug instead of 2, NO drugs for a period, etc.) COMPLETELY separate.
That way I have averages that reflect only what they are meant to reflect.
Right now I can demonstrate results of periods with my ARB+HCTZ, ARB alone, HCTZ alone, NO DRUGS.
No sense comparing apples and oranges.
