2 or more doctor visits a year keeps blood pressure under control (October 21, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From South Carolina - Visiting the doctor 2x a year can help keep blood pressure under control, according to a report published in Circulation. Researchers studied data on 37,000 adults taking part in a long term study, having their blood pressure measure regularly between 1999-2012. After controlling for risk factors, results showed that those who visited their doctor at least twice a year were 3.2x more likely to have their blood pressure under control when compared to those who only saw their doctor once a year or less.
