Low Blood Pressure Problems by Janice Kumar
I recently suffered from continuously low blood pressure and tried to find possible causes and solutions. In case you or someone you know, is suffering from low blood pressure, you should find useful information in this article.
Normally blood pressure is measured when the heart is beating (Systolic) and also when it is at rest (Diastolic). These measurements are normally written as a figure 120/80 mmHg and is indicative of the body's health. Normal Blood pressure values would range between 110-120 (Systolic) and 70-80 ( Diastolic). A blood pressure reading above 140 mmHg ( consistently) can be categorized as High Blood Pressure and a reading below 65 (Diastolic) may be considered as Low Blood Pressure. Normally the working of the body will suffer below 60 ( Diastolic) and this may require investigation and treatment.
This article will discuss Low Blood Pressure, its symptoms, broad outline of investigation as to cause and some solutions.
Some symptoms of Low Blood Pressure may be as follows:
Some possible causes for low blood pressure and related symptoms could be:
Some possible investigations which can eliminate and confirm factors at work before initiating treatment are:
If all of the above causes are eliminated then the cause may be related to Stress and Depression requiring a different set of treatments involving life style modification and relaxation techniques.
At times ( as it happens to be in my case), the body's normal blood pressure is low due to hereditary or constitution factors. This does not require treatment as the body learns to function normally at slightly lower blood pressure levels. However a drop below 60-65 Diastolic will normally require some perk up foods and drinks. A hearty nutritious breakfast and fruit drinks ( with a little salt added) will help in boosting blood pressure levels and bring things online. The doctor may also prescribe vitamins and minerals as dietary supplements to help in stabilizing the body. Some other energy boosters are milk with honey added and fresh lime juice with sugar and salt. .......However, sometimes, a strong cup of coffee is all it takes to fix things..
