In brief: Depends on cause
This can be due to meds, nervous system disease, heart disease, dehydration, aging, or other. Treatment for each of these can be different.
Postural hypotension occuring after eating can be avoided by eating small meals low in carbohydrates. For all causes, stand up slowly rather than quickly to allow the body to adjust. Fludrocortisone can be used in some cases. Please check with your doctor.
