Frequently Asked Questions



When is a good time to take my blood pressure?

It is best to measure your blood pressure in the middle of the day. It is typical for your blood pressure to be lower in the morning than in the evening. Also, smoking, eating, and working out can affect your blood pressure, so we recommend that you wait at least 1 hour after any of these activities before checking it.

Is it normal for my blood pressure to fluctuate?

Yes, it is normal for an individual to have 25-30% fluctuation in blood pressure throughout the day. Normal, everyday activities can cause blood pressure to rise or fall, such as walking a certain distance, high stress levels, or even what you ate for breakfast. However, if you are sure there is no reason your blood pressure should fluctuate as much as it is, then we recommend you go see a doctor.

Are There People for Whom the Scale is Not Appropriate?

People with pacemakers are advised not to use the monitors. Although there are no known health risks, this is a precaution that is advocated by all manufacturers of BIA (Bioelectric Impedance Analysis). Accuracy is an issue for certain categories of people, but the units may still be used to monitor trends and accurately show degree of change.

They include:

• Pregnant women

• People who exceed the weight capacity of the scale (models vary) and/or exceed 75% body fat

• Professional athletes and bodybuilders
