Took BP before eating high carb meal 127/85 pulse 80, then stood for 12mins. Bp was 108/85 pulse 146 does this suggest postprandial hypotension?

In brief: Rapid heart rhythm

Your b p dropped significantly after standing but the pulse rate of 146 was very rapid.
I wonder if this was accurate. We're you lightheaded when your b p dropped? If not, then it is not problematic. A heart rate of 146 would be problematic. Double check your pulse to be sure and see how long it takes to return to normal. Discussion with your physician is recommended.
