Correction: Best time of day to check blood pressure.

Q: Can you please tell me when the best time of day it is to check blood pressure? Thanks

A: The best time to check your blood pressure is a time that will be routinely convenient.  Blood pressure varies throughout the day. Because of this, you want to compare readings that are taken about the same time. Early morning high blood pressure is associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.  If you are in poor control, you may want to check your blood pressure first thing in the morning.
