Blood Pressure Monitor...Which one???

I found out I have mildly high BP in January (around 130/90). High BP runs in my family. I'm a runner and road cyclist, not overweight, don't smoke or drink and still have an issue. My doctor didn't recommend lifestyle modifications because, for me it seems to be a genetic link. I've been taking 5 mg of lisinopril since January and my BP seems to be hovering in a range around 110-115/77-85 now. However, my docotor wants me to monitor readings at home. I was looking at the Omron automatic monitors and I'm wondering if others have found these reliable. If so, what model? Thank you.

Re: Blood Pressure Monitor...Which one???

I too have a omron monitor. Nothing fancy like the newer ones that can check for irregular heartbeats and what not, thank god though, i don't need another thing to have to worry about but it gets the job done.

It's the Omron model HEM-712c. All the reviews i read says omron makes very accurate monitors.

I have two monitors - an Omron and a Microlife. Personally I prefer the Microlife to the Omron even though it reads a bit higher. I am not a fan of the Comfit cuff on the Omron. Having said that, I don't think you can go wrong with an Omron.

Omiron has withstood my millions of readings while I adjusted to having HBP. I tested every b/p monitor at Walmart plus all the monitors of all my friends & neighbors . The last consumer report on monitors said Omiron was very accurate. Read the directions went you get yours. Customer service was excellent. Fam
