An estimated one-quarter of Canadian adults have high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease, kidney failure, heart failure, stroke, eye disease, erectile dysfunction and other conditions. Blood pressure is often measured wrong. Midhurst Pharmacy offers free blood pressure monitoring done by a trained pharmacist (not a kiosk). We have recently purchased a state of the art blood pressure machine that takes an average of 3 of your readings (which is equivalent to wearing a 24hr monitor), that measures children over the age of 5yrs, and sensor technology that allows optimal accuracy.
Pharmacist owners Jenna Lougheed and Carolyn Glover offer LiveWell tips here and in the Springwater News.
