I heard from one of our experts that you should take your home monitor into the doctor's office and have them take it with both so if it is off--you will know to what degree and also I think they can adjust them so maybe they can help you with that--of course that would depend on the monitor.
I know that APEC (our UK sister group) says only two home blood pressure monitors have been tested as effective for use with preeclampsia (that is that they are the only ones approved--but not that they are the only good ones). BUT of course I don't know which ones those are. We were thinking of seeing if we could get a BP monitor company (with one of the approved ones) to sell them through our site and give us a donation everytime they were purchased. What do you all think about that idea? I will find out which ones APEC says have been approved. I have heard though that when in doubt--take it in to your next appointment.
