How do I take my blood pressure when I have white coat syndrome at home as well?
I gather that most people with white coat syndrome only get it at the doctor's office.   I get it at home as well.  I take three readings at a time now.  I average the last two.  (My bp drops between 10 and 40 pts between the first and second!)  But I remember other theories on how to interpret the readings.  I read somewhere that you should take the lowest - after all, the issue isn't spuriously low readings.  Some have said to take the highest - just to be safe.  That was fine when I was 40.  Now that I am 70, I feel the effects of too much medication.  Ambulatory cuffs don't help.  I notice the cuff tightening around my arm.  Any thoughts?
