The PCOS* Protection Plan: How to Cut Your Increased Risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity, and High Blood Pressure

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

        Do you struggle with your weight? Have irregular periods (or none at all)? Get acne? Notice thinning hair? Or do you have to deal with unwanted facial and body hair? If you have any of these problems, the chances are fairly good that you have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), along with one in ten women.

        We now know that women with PCOS are more likely to get diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity and its related health problems; and research is currently linking PCOS to a host of other health complications as well. And while you might see this as a frightening glimpse into the future, at least women with PCOS can look future health risks in the eye and then do something right now to reduce them instead of never knowing what could be around the corner.

        That something is the PCOS Protection Plan, an action plan written by women with PCOS for women with PCOS—to help you take control of your health so that you can significantly reduce the risk of serious health conditions.

Facts About Blood Pressure

Your heart is your most important organ, and it’s a good idea to know how well it’s doing. With Omron home blood pressure monitors, you consistently get an accurate picture of your heart’s health.

One in three adults suffer from high blood pressure in America. This condition can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and blindness. With the Omron 3 SERIES wrist monitor, you can monitor your blood pressure at home, and with the help of your physician, take steps to decrease your risk of heart disease. A healthy heart combined with a healthy lifestyle will help increase your chances for a long, active life.

Chart
View this chart to learn more about what the numbers mean.

What the Numbers Mean
Understanding your readings is easy with the Omron 3 SERIES blood pressure monitor. The easy-to-read screen displays your readings in large font and labels each number with a tab along the side.

     Systolic Pressure is the top number on the display. It’s the pressure created as your heart contracts to pump blood throughout the body.

     Diastolic Pressure is the bottom number on the display. It’s the pressure between beats, when your heart relaxes.

These numbers combine to give you your blood pressure reading (systolic over diastolic pressure).

How to Monitor + Tips
Your blood pressure numbers often change. For instance, your blood pressure in the morning can be significantly different than at night, when you visit a doctor’s office, or after exercising. By using an Omron blood pressure monitor at home, you’re able to detect changes in your blood pressure any time you want.

Monitoring at Home is Easy
To ensure an accurate reading, do not measure your blood pressure within 30 minutes of:

  • Exercising
  • Eating
  • Smoking
  • Drinking Alcohol
  • Bathing

Place the blood pressure arm cuff on your left arm and sit quietly for approximately five minutes with both feet flat on the floor. Then, when you are ready to test, simply press the start button and the Omron monitor will do the rest.

WSN® Blood Vessel Support Formula, a Medical Food Specifically Formulated for the Dietary Management of Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

This Formula is a completely natural product that is support blood pressure levels. Under normal conditions when the tiny muscles that control blood pressure are relaxed, your arteries operate like soft rubber tubes that expand with each beat of your heart, and your blood pressure remains normal. When these muscles tense up, the arteries become narrower, more rigid and less flexible and raises blood pressure. Poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, overweight, alcohol and caffeine in excess, emotional and physical stress and the diabetic condition all cause the loss of vital minerals to the body. These minerals are essential to the natural and effective control of blood pressure. Not having enough magnesium is one of the primary causes of high blood pressure. The Blood Vessel Support formula is a unique combination of wholefood Vitamins and minerals, especially Magnesium, that will nourish the cells of your vascular system with the nutrition they need. If you give the body the right fuel and the right nutrients, it will respond and help to bring down your blood pressure naturally. These supplements are rapidly absorbed by the body and transported to where they are needed, retained and utilized We’re so sure about the quality and effectiveness of the WSN® Blood Vessel Support Formula, and that you will experience the results you want, we offer a 90-day money-back guarantee and a free support line to help you get the results you seek.

This monitor comes equipped with a standard adult-sized cuff that fits arms nine-to-13 inches in circumference. Simply wrap the cuff around your arm and squeeze the bulb to begin inflation. In a few seconds your blood pressure and pulse readings are displayed on the large digital panel. Omron’s monitors are clinically proven for accuracy so you can use the HEM-432C to track your blood pressure and pulse progress as your work towards a healthier lifestyle.

    The Omron HEM-432C delivers accurate, clinically-proven blood pressure readings in the comfort of your own home.

    To take an accurate reading, first position the marker so it is centered on the inside of your arm and aligned with your middle finger.

    Next, place your arm on a table so the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart.

    Instructions for Manual Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitors
    There are several easy steps to taking your blood pressure with this monitor. First of all, avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your upper arm, and sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Slide your left arm through the cuff and position the cuff approximately 0.5-inches above the elbow. On the cuff you’ll notice a blue marker; position this marker so it is centered on the inside of your arm and aligned with your middle finger. Next, secure the cuff with the closure strip. The cuff should make direct contact with your skin, but you should be able to easily fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm.

    Place your arm on a table so that the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart. Rest comfortably in a relaxed environment for at least 15 minutes prior to taking your blood pressure measurement. Once you feel relaxed, begin inflating the cuff by rapidly squeezing the inflation bulb until you have reached approximately 30-40 mmHg higher than your normal systolic reading. If your normal systolic blood pressure reading is unknown, inflate the cuff to 180 mmHg (never inflate higher than 299 mmHg). When the desired pressure has been achieved, release the inflation bulb. Once inflation stops, the measurement is started. As the cuff deflates, decreasing numbers will appear on the display. When the measurement is complete the Heartbeat symbol stops flashing and your blood pressure and pulse rates are displayed on the screen. And remember, always consult your physician for specific information about your blood pressure.

    The Importance of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring
    Doctors, diabetes educators, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals all recommend home blood pressure monitoring for various reasons. Home monitoring provides your healthcare professionals with better information to understand and manage your high blood pressure. Many types of hypertension can only be detected by monitoring your blood pressure at home, including:

    • White-Coat Hypertension: blood pressure reading is high in your doctor’s office but lower at home
    • Masked Hypertension: blood pressure reading is low in doctor’s office but higher at home
    • Morning Hypertension: blood pressure reading is higher in the morning

    Additionally, many factors can affect your blood pressure, including physical exertion, emotional fluctuations, medications, and stress. So having your blood pressure monitored at a pharmacy with an in-store device after you’ve been shopping or walking around might not provide you with the most accurate measurement. Monitoring your blood pressure at home allows you achieve a relaxed state more easily, and it gives you the flexibility to take your measurements at various times during the day. By keeping track of your home blood pressure readings, you can provide your healthcare professional with a log of your measurements over time. This can help them evaluate the effectiveness or need for medication.
