I have access to a calibrated BP machine in my doctors but I can get no advice on how to come up with an overall measurement which is meaningful. I have been told variously to take two measures and take the lowest whereas my chemist said take three and average the last two. I even created a wonderful spreadsheet to work everything out. In summary I can get no definitive advice which encourages me to take my BP in the knowledge of never being able to establish what my overall BP average is and whether it is acceptable, So what is the definitive advice about taking BP measurements over say a week and how should it be interpreted . Should it be an average over the whole day or just solely mornings /evenings or what
