Why is my hubby having to take tablets for both high and low pressure? I need some advice.

Why is my hubby having to take tablets for both high and low pressure? I need some advice.

This is weird: "Low blood pressure" in someone who's out walking around in the ordinary world isn't a bona fide illness. This may be a case of a common truism -- seeing too many physicians. You can't make his health care decisions for him, but you can develop your own discernment for charlatanism. ...Read more

See you doctor: This may be something as minor as a bladder infection. However, anyone who urinates that often at night should be checked for diabetes. If those are normal, see your gyn. You might have a prolapsed bladder or vesicocele. ...Read more

Low bp: These BP values are too low. Call your prescriber to discuss a dose reduction. Losartan is excellent. 50 or 25 mg may be sufficient. Be careful that you do not faint or fall. ...Read more

I got my pod pressure checked and i'm a 50 yr old female with diabetes and it was130 over 80, I use to be kinda low? Is this ok?

This is borderline: I assume you meant blood pressure. 130/80 is the upper level of blood pressure that we consider normal in a young diabetic like you. Blood pressure tends to go up as we age, so you should have your BP checked regularly at least every few months to insure that it doesn't stay above 130/80. ...Read more

I've experienced more headaches than usual lately, and tested my pressure which has been quite low. This morning it's at 88/58- cause for concern?

Depends: If you have a persistent drop in blood pressure (at least 10 %) without any reason and not feeling well, this is troublesome and requires evaluation. Make sure that you were not dehydrated when the BP was taken. I'd doubt however that the lower BP is the cause for your headache. ...Read more

I suffer 2-3 migraines a week, uncontrollable despite meds only hot shower provides temporary relief. Should i be concerned? history low pressure migraines

Fixes are available: Not sure that you need to be concerned, as there are many solutions. Botox may be useful, but greater occipital nerve blocks may also work. Pain medication, especially opioids always backfires and causes more headaches, so try to get off the oxycodone. Would not use prescription meds necessarily, as otc items work as well or better, such as feverfew, butterbur, riboflavin, coq-10, magnesium, . ...Read more

What is considered too low for diastolic pressure?

What is considered too low for diastolic pressure?

Depends: "too low" implies that it is a problem. 70 is lower than average but would not raise an eyebrow. 50-60 is unusual and would lead me to think, why? If you feel well it is probably not a problem. But if the diastolic pressure is on the low side, i would consider things that might cause that even if the patient is well. Leaking of the aortic valve for instance can cause a low diastolic pressure. ...Read more
