Does anyone average out their bp readings to spot trends?
My wife is Type 2 diabetic and has to take her BG readings several times a day to spot how well (or not!) her body is dealing with sugar/carbs. I used to keep her company by taking several bp readings daily as well! Our house was like a surgery sometimes!!
At the beginning of this year I decided to reduce readings to about 1 every other day, although I must confess if I got a reading I didn't like or was suspicious of, I would take another one!
I now have almost 4 months readings in my Little Black Book! I have averaged them out as follows:
What is interesting is that on some days my readings were quite high but I had compensating low reading days.
The thing is this.......is it dangerous to become complacent because averages appear acceptable and does this mask the dangers of the high readings?
Has anyone else done the same thing? I would be interested to know.
