When to Measure Your BP at Home

When to Measure Your BP at Home

Your PCP can recommend the ideal self-monitoring schedule for you. If you haven’t been given a set schedule, we recommend monitoring your BP at these key times:

  • As you begin your Omada program, so you can track your progress.
  • Before each scheduled checkup, to give your provider useful data.
  • After a change to your hypertension medication, to measure its effectiveness.
  • Once a month to check in on how your BP may be changing.

Because BP fluctuates so much throughout the day, getting an accurate measurement can be tricky. To capture the most clinically useful data, we recommend you measure your BP twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening — for 3 days in a row.

Each time you measure your BP, take two readings, one minute apart, and record both results using your Omada Blood Pressure Tracker. Do not change your position or remove the BP cuff between readings.
