    A colleague of mine at schol keeps having nosebleeds so I jokingly suggested it could be her blood pressure. I borrowed one and tested us both first thing in the morning at school and was a bit worried by the results. It has made us both determined to loose weight to start with.
    Just wondering if anyone takes their own blood pressure.

    I would make an appointment with the Practice Nurse, if
    they feel that your BP is too high they will refer you quickly to the GP. I
    have to monitor my BP constantly, well take three random readings a week, and
    then I send them into the surgery. I ended up buying an electronic monitor as I
    was finding it difficult to get to the surgery so frequently (and I have white
    coat syndrome!). The deal is that every two months I bring my results in and my
    monitor and the nurse takes my BP with both to check the readings are the same.
    They have said that they will send it to be calibrated if necessary.
