Why does my blood pressure keep dropping? Diabetic, but I am sure it has nothing to do with this problem. My blood pressure drops every now and then in the morning. Why is that?

In brief: How low?

Depends on how low it drops.
People with long-standing diabetes can get problems with their autonomic nervous system, causing wide fluctuations in BP with changes in position, like going from a lying to a standing position. See your doctor and have them check "orthostatic bp's". Other causes of autonomic dysfunction can also be the cause. See your doctor.
