Recognizing the Ups and Downs of Blood Pressure

A cardiologist recommended the number of times during the week you should take your blood pressure is – one. That may sound a bit odd to people who are hypertensive or have heart issues given that controlling your blood pressure is a priority.
The explanation given was that your blood pressure does not swing much high or low during the course of a week unless something is seriously wrong. Should that happen, you will know that you need to see a doctor.

Daily Cycles

A person’s blood pressure will rise and fall naturally over the course of the day. The afternoon blood pressure level will usually be higher than any other part of the day, in part because that is when most people are most active.
When you are sleeping, your body needs the rest and so your blood pressure drops. In a way this is common sense, but for people who gave high blood pressure any unexpected rise can be a cause for concern.

Sleeping it Off

Recent studies have shown that people who have heart problems usually have high blood pressure readings when they are sleeping. One cause of higher blood pressure readings when sleeping is when a person’s sleep is broken up, with several shorter sleeping times during the day.
The objective is to have one continuous period of sleep that is 7 hours or longer in duration. Subjects in the study who slept one continuous period of time had more normal cyclical pressure readings throughout the day.

The Simplest Solution

The simplest solution to keeping your blood pressure at healthy levels is to make sure you get that one continuous period of sleep every day. The problem with the solution is that for many people it is not practical. Lifestyles of working people with children is very demanding, and other studies have reported that teenagers do not get adequate amounts of sleep that contribute to a number of other health problems.
This seems to be a situation that requires most people to make significant changes to the way they live or face long term health problems related to hypertension. Based on the current evidence, this is not an action many people are likely to take anytime soon.
