Can Celiac Disease Cause Reactive Hypoglycemia And Low Blood Pressure
Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. Less than 100/60 (of either number) can ...Read more
Intermittent tachycardia with blood pressure changes every few hours, looking like but is not hypoglycemia, needing diagnosis and treatment.....?
More information would help clarify how to solve the problem: The combination of recurrent tachycardia, "unstable" blood sugar and blood pressure, "all the symptoms of diabetes" but normal HgbA1c, "reactive hypoglycemia" and symptoms occurring every three hours, and atypical sleep apnea. The differential diagnosis would include: *Insulinoma (insulin secreting tumor) producing recurant hypoglycemia with tachycardia) *Pheochrocytoma (adrenaline secreting tumor often of the adrenal glands) *polyendocrine syndome encompassing either or both with possible hypophysitis with ovarian hypofunction or autoimmune oopheritis. You may have been screened for insulinoma but remember that common screening test use monoclonal antibodies which will not pick up proinsulin. To assist in diagnosis - providing more detail to the phrases in paragraph 1 including labs and then consultation with an endocrinologist would be an appropriate next step. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm just wondering, if you always have good normal, low blood pressure, are you likely absent of heart disease?
Not necessarily: Hypertension is just one of the risk factors for heart disease. If you have a normal blood pressure but weigh 300 pounds, smoke two packs per day, have diabetes, have a high cholesterol, and are a couch potato, the normal blood pressure will probably not be very protective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

LBP and Venous Stasi: Blood pressure is disease of the arteries. Venous stasis is disease of the veins. While both may exist in the same patient, they are not necessarily connected. Venous stasis is due to floppy veins, usually in the lower extremities. The back flow of blood is what causes the increased blood pressure in the veins. The increased pressure allows fluid to leak into the tissues causing venous stasis. ...Read more
Will having low blood pressure cause fainting spells? could it be related to an undiagnosed A-fib?
Fainting yes...: The fainting can absolutely be related to low blood pressure. The afib is less likely unless your heart rate is going too fast to perfuse your brain. There is less of a connection between afib and low blood pressure, unless you heart rate is going fast, usually >120-140. Check your blood pressure, get an ECG and possibly a holter or event monitor depending on the frequency of events. See your dr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In celiac disease, the body reacts to gluten (in wheat and gluten-like proteins in rye and barley) resulting in damage to the small intestine. This limits the intestine's ability to absorb some nutrients. Typically, people with celiac disease have loose stools, bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort, weight loss, poor weight gain ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
