Low Blood Pressure 90 40
A persistant low blood pressure 60/90 over 10 days. What does it indicate for a house wife aged 40.?
Depends: I assume you mean 90/60 as the first number is always higher. That is a lower than average blood pressure. If you feel ok, don't worry about it. People with low blood pressure live longer. If you are getting dizzy or having fatigue or other problems then maybe there is a problem. There are lots of things that can make the blood pressure low, so tests would be needed to find the problem. ...Read more
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
I have usually low blood pressure, but these couple of days my pressure is 70/40 and lower. Tests are okay. What to do?
My last three blood pressures were 92/68 90/68 and 104/46. Should I bet concerned about low blood pressure and what causes it?
You do not have low: Bp. The lowest one appears to be borderline. You can raise little bit by increasing your salt intake if you are symptomatic. ...Read more

Depends: Low blood pressure and whether it will affect you depends on your body habitus, nutritional status, medications, how fit you are, etc. If you have symptoms of headaches, dizziness, fatigue then discuss this with your doctor.

He was in e.R. They couldn't find anything wrong. Slightly elevated r.B.C. And slightly low blood pressure. Could it be sudden drop in blood pressure?
"Low" is semantic: "normal" blood pressure is an arbitrary thing--i.e. Lower cutoffs of 100 systolic, 60 diastolic were created b/c above these are where the vast majority of people fall. However, many healthy people, as well as some people with heart or liver disease who are perfectly stable, have BP in the 80-90s range. The main point is if it is a change from your personal baseline, and whether you have symptoms. ...Read more
Depends: Low blood pressure is only dangerous if it is impairing adequate oxygen delivery to meet the needs of vital organs of the body, or if it signifies an underlying process that is dangerous if it worsens (e.g. Diffuse bacterial infection, or toxin poisoning). The actual number, in and of itself, is not dangerous if all organs remain working fine. ...Read more
It's too low if you have symptoms
for example, there are people that walk around with blood pressure of 90/50 without any problems. There are others who are dizzy, wobbly and feel horrendous.
Some of these general guidelines go out the window dealing with really sick people, intensive care etc. Different set of rules in that case. ...Read more
Depends: Low blood pressure might be a good thing. People live longer. It's just a number. If you feel fine, it is unlikely a problem. Now if you are sick and it is low, the treatment depends on the cause. For instance, bleeding. Stop the bleeding and give blood transfusion. Dehydration. Give fluids by mouth or intravenously. Infection. Give antibiotics. Adrenal insufficiency, give hormone replacement. ...Read more
Varies: Several possibilities, but here are some: dehydration, esp in the summer when we can loose more water than we realize. Medications (lots-best to talk with your doctor). Infections, mainly serious ones. Heart problems. Endocrine problems. Kidney problems. More. For some people a lower BP is normal. Because the list is long and complex, i'd encourage you to have a eval & discussion w/ your doctor. ...Read more
Depends: Low BP or "hypotension" (less than 120/80) is always bad if happened all of a sudden. It has got several reasons. Of those reasons the common bad ones are 1)severe dehydration, any cause of 2)bleeding, any where in our body, 3)infections, hormonal dysfunction, and 4) heart conditions with failure, or hear attacks, to name a few. For some it can be a normal finding too, as low as 80/60. ...Read more
Low blood pressure: It depends. In an athlete, it can be completely normal. In a 70yo, it may either be excessive high blood pressure medication, or heart trouble. Cardiogenic, septic, and neurogenic shock, as well as a vasovagal response can all cause low blood pressure. You also need to look at the heart rate. Taking too much of a beta blocker can cause low BP and low hr. Athletes will have the same. ...Read more
Blood pressure: If we make the assumption you are otherwise normal, you may just have baseline stroke volume and peripheral vascular resistance that yields a low but normal pressure. As soon as we allow abnormal considerations low blood volume, low stroke volume, low resistance and reasons for them all come into play. ...Read more
Commonly dehydration: For the average person, the most common cause of low BP is from dehydration--not getting enough fluids/foods. For elderly this is even more common. Also, medications can also do this. Autonomic dysfunctions as in parkinson disease or advanced diabetes; heart failure, liver failure, rapid blood loss/bleeding etc...Are other major causes. If you have problem, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Depends: BP varies from person to person and even hour to hour. However if it drops too rapidly, it signals something being wrong with your cardiovascular system. When the pressure drops rapidly or gets low enough, there may not be enough blood going into the organs especially the brain. The end result may be fainting, shock, and even death. ...Read more
May not need to: It is in general better to have a low blood pressure, you will live longer. If it is very low because of some acute problem and the output of the heart is low, that is a horse of a different color. That is called shock. It might result in a low urine output, confusion, and even unconsciousness. The treatment would depend on the cause such as dehydration, bleeding, infection, or whatever. ...Read more
Just a number: Well 120/80 has been considered average. Under 100 is getting low. But what is more important is how do you feel. If you feel well, I would not worry about a low blood pressure. Actually people with a low blood pressure live longer. I have seen patients with a pressure of 80/60 who feel quite well. ...Read more
How low can you go?: Is not just about limbo, it can also be about your blood pressure. If your top number is 90 or less, the key is how do you feel? Dizzy, lightheaded [especially when you sit up or stand up], heart running fast, even passing out. ... Not good. Talk with your doc! On the other hand, some people - especially athletes or yogis - feel fine & it's a sign of how healthy, body& mind, they are. ...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
Abnormal blood pressure is a symptom in which a person's blood pressure is much higher or much lower than it should be for his age and body size. If either the systolic (upper number) pressure or the diastolic (lower number) pressure is not in the normal range, then the ...Read more
