One of the most important things you can do to manage high blood pressure is to track it every day to spot trends that warrant a closer look and measure the success of your treatment.

Hypertension caused or contributed to more than 500,000 deaths in 2019, and Black Americans are disproportionately affected. Hypertension medications work when taken as prescribed, and Walgreens solutions can match patients’ preferences.

Explore all of the tools Walgreens offers to help you manage and track your blood pressure.
