LANSING ICE STORM: Older people, how's your blood pressure?
December 31, 2013
My wife and I did some grocery shopping yesterday at the Meijers on West Saginaw, across from the Lansing Mall to replace what we lost because of last week's ice storm. While passing their blood pressure machine in the pharmacy area, I took my blood pressure. I was moderately concerned that it would be elevated.
However, it was very normal and in the healthy range. I don't take any meds for it, but I do take an assortment of eyedrops for chronic open angle glaucoma.
What's your opinion? Do these store blood pressure machines give an accurate reading?
