In brief: Low blood pressure

Low blood pressure (BP) is not really a disease condition.
In general, for your health, the lower your bp, the better. The exception to this is when you get symptoms like lighted-headedness or dizziness when you stand up or feel like you're about to faint. There are individuals whose BP is 80/50, and they feel fine. Other people may have 100/60 and feel dizzy because that is low for them.
