The Power of Knowledge: How Aktiia’s Blood Pressure Monitoring Device Empowers Working Dads to Take Control of Their Health

In the UK, over 9 in 10 fathers with dependent children are in employment. Today’s working dads care about success in their careers whilst remaining committed to providing for their families. Balancing these priorities is often challenging, to which many would say this comes as ‘part of the territory’. 

But the demands of this lifestyle should not come at the cost of their health. 

It is widely known that men are more prone to hypertension than women. Moreover, recent studies have shown that working too much could lead to high blood pressure. Naturally, it follows that the working dad demographic may be more at risk of cardiovascular health issues.

Certain elements of family and working life can, of course, contribute to risk factors for hypertension. Perhaps the most obvious would be work or family-related stress elevating blood pressure.

Finally, chronic sleep deprivation has been associated with an increased risk of developing hypertension. This may be an issue for working dads as a product of caring for young children whilst employed. 

Living With High Blood Pressure  

It can be difficult to manage the physical symptoms of hypertension in a professional environment. Sufferers may experience fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath. 

As with any patient, working dads would be encouraged to make certain lifestyle adjustments following a diagnosis of high blood pressure. Adopting a heart-healthy diet is a great place to start. Slowly introducing exercise into everyday life will soon demonstrate that small changes can make a big difference. Changes can be tough to accommodate when you already have enough on your plate!

Understandably, a diagnosis of hypertension can be quite worrying. Health anxieties can take a toll on emotional wellbeingtoo. Not to mention it can be very time consuming to sit down and take readings on a blood pressure monitor multiple times a day. Surely there’s a way to …
