    Does anyone know of a good "free" blood pressure tracking application (diary) for the Blackberry? I just found out that I have high blood pressure and with no insurance this could get expensive. Any kind of App out there that I could use to help me keep track? Preferably free, as I don't have alot a cash at the moment.

    Thanks for your help.

    without it being hooked up to your body, how would the app/phone keep track of your blood pressure.

    Basically would just keep a daily log file of my current BP. Not to actually "check" the BP. Info would be input by myself, just asking....if nothing exists then I will just have to carry a small notepad with me for when I check my stats. Thanks.

    there are some medical based apps in appworld, and you can try searching the 3rd party apps forum (where this question shouldve been posted anyway). but i dont recall seeing an app like this. maybe you can use Docs to Go to create a spread sheet.

    actually, if there was a digital blood pressure monitor that displayed a 3d barcode that a blackberry could read, then your criteria could be settled.

    it would be cheaper than a digital blood pressure monitor with a sim to sms the data.

    any inventors here?

    A diet app might be your best bet as you could input stats and you need to change diet anyway.

    Best thing I have used is a plain simple excel spreadsheet. Periodically you could open it on your computer and graph the results.

    Yeah - definitely make sure you cut WAY back on your sodium intake. Best of luck - I was diagnosed with high BP recently, too.

    I was told by my doc a while back that I was "on the edge" of having high blood pressure, and he requested that I monitor my BP till my next appointment. I used Notepad which is in the applications folder and is a resident program. No app to download or pay for. I was able to keep a running diary of my BP readings and when I went back to the doc I pulled up the document on my phone to show him.
