Can low blood pressure be dangerous?

As a new feature of CNNhealth.com, our team of expert doctors will answer readers’ questions. Here’s a question for Dr. Gupta.

Asked by Bella, Buffalo, New York

"Dr. Gupta,
Everyone always talks about high blood pressure, but I have a question about low blood pressure. I am 21, female, eat very healthy, not intensely athletic, but I do cardio every morning and my blood pressure is 90/60. I am dizzy every morning when I wake up, and if I sit for too long, I am dizzy when I stand up. Is this a problem, and is there something I should be doing differently?"


Thanks Bella for writing in. I am a little concerned about what you are writing. Blood pressure can be a tricky thing to understand because levels categorized as “too high” or “too low” in one person, may be normal for someone else.

Once a person establishes his or her baseline number, it’s important to consult with a health-care provider to evaluate its specific impact.

A normal blood pressure is essential to your heart because it promotes and allows healthy blood flow. And you are right–typically you hear people talking about the dangers of HIGH blood pressure because it can lead to heart disease. But low blood pressure, known as hypotension, can be dangerous as well.

What’s too low? Anything below 90/60mm. Experts say that if you have a low BP level and are experiencing dizziness, fatigue, nausea it could be a sign of serious underlying conditions such as a heart condition, blood infection or damage to your nervous system. It is best to be evaluated to determine what could be the trigger.

For those not experiencing symptoms, a low BP level is rarely of concern. You can boost your blood pressure levels naturally by staying hydrated throughout the day and increasing the amount of sodium in your diet.

    I am Subhash aged 70 years male. Generally I have higher BP between 130 to 160, lower BP between 57 to 75 and pulse rats between 68 to 85.
    Is this a normal or not good for my health and
    How can I improve the levels in normal range – by taking medicines and by dietary control.

Sometimes he has spikes in blood pressure. I am very concernes. I dont know if there's anything in the works or if he's going to have another attack again.

    My bp has been high for a number of years, I am on metoprolol and norvasc, at the end of December, I was hospitalized,they had me on four bp meds,but after a week there,they took me off all but the two. Bp still runs a little high most of the time. A while ago I was doing some housework when I started sweating real bad,got nations and very dizzy,my head was vothering me also. I immediately laid down and put a cool rag on my head and closed my eyes, I thought my bp had gone up. My husband brought me my monitor and to my shock, it was real low. 145/56. I took it four times and it varied only a couple times,always real low. What could cause this? I have a follow up doctor appointment in the morning, was planning to check pressure,if to low again,was planning not to take my meds and ask Doctor what causes it and if I should go ahead and take it. I just want to know what could be causing this. Thank you for listening.

    Listen I'm 29. I'm dizzy 247 my bp runs 90/60 p 111 or 85/56 p125.. I found out by a heart doctor bc I was driving I got dizzy I went off the road and hit a mailbox I blacked out lucky nobuddy got hurt. But I was diagnosed with POTS. U have to be tested for it. I have pots disease. If u don't maintain it it can cause major issues. There only one medication out to raise ur BP I'm on it 2x aday.. and I have to. wear Ted hose at the age 29. Alot of my issues I suffer with is all do to the pots. Pits isnt a joke got to heart doctor explain urself to them. And sea medical attention. Now what's bad about pot ur not allowed to have caffine. No soda no coffee and chocolate.u will have to go a weird diet. I don't really follow it but my BP is so out of wack I need to listen to the hot diet b4 something happends.. two things that are major with pot u have to have a lot of salt in ur diet. And drink cap load of water. That will help ur BP stable with the medication. .

    I had a table tilt study done in Aug 2017. They gave me nitro glycerin to make me pass out. I've dealt with syncope for over 20 years with no explanation. I passed out during the study. When I came out of it they told me my blood pressure was 37/49. Why would that happen and why would they send me home right after?

    I’m 80 and my blood pressure is 95 over 46. I feel dizzy and tired. Six weeks ago I fell heavily from a sitting position and passed out for a while.
    I’m still suffering from severe pain in my chest when I sleep. I have been told that my scapula moved violently during the fall and caused internal damage.
    What should I do to bring my blood pressure to a suitable level to avoid dizziness and fainting?

    My blood pressure fluctuates between very high, the highest was 192 over 154 and the lowest was 67 over 49. My doc told me to take my bp morning and evening and if needed take my meds. He finaly managed to find out what was going on. It can be a part of pps. Post polio syndrome. Luckily we have (now had) a pps clinic in our area. This was in the nineties. I guess we are a dying breed.

    II was allergic to a form of penicillin I was taking it for a bladder infection The attending doctor gave me a shot at 8 PM I almost died because the time they responded to me I was out cold and I will when they got my attention my blood pressure was 45/16 Passed out and I couldn’t breathe they put oxygen mask on me they gave me an EpiPen and then they called the paramedics and the paramedics came and gave me a shot of Benadryl that helped wake up my system. I was taken to emergency room at the VMC I stayed in emergency from 945PM to 5 o’clock in the morning.. The paramedics that I was very lucky a course in the midst of it all I lost all of my bladder urine and I’ve been told that that’s the first thing that happens is that you lose your bladder and rectum control. Would like your input on this? The Dr sawl MyChart that I was allergic to a form of penicillin! The doctor called me next day and apologized and Paula Jason I said you almost killed me because nobody was paying attention I yelled at you in the hallway where you were chitchatting and you ignored me. My attending physician at VMC doesn’t matter how busy she is she would squeeze me in and kept giving me a hug and saying you’re a fighter you’re a fighter maybe I have nine lives have used three of them up near death experiences.

    My BP is always low. Today I had a medical exam and it was 90/45, and I felt perfect! I never get dizzy or lightheaded, and I can do a lot of physical activity! Sometimes doctors get concerned about it, but because It doesn't affect me, they say that it's fine. Salt and coffee help to increase BP little bit.

    73 yr old man, 2 weeks out from back surgery, this morning ended up in ER after paramedics found my BP at 40/32, dehydrated for no apparent reason and babbling nonsense. Released tonight at 5PM after 4 bags of fluid, cat scan of brain, blood work, EKG , etc.

    Still no explanation why I crashed. Any thoughts?

    You have thought to use an opt-in list builder program.
    An individual far you have had decent success
    we want to boost subscriber list. If you've ever
    wondered how to do this using free advertising models than read
    this article.

    This is known as the easiest method to earn cash online.
    Always be very legit and it's simple to begin. With AdSense, you'll be able to develop for other webmasters and earn a
    person clicks on the ads. In which very encouraging because
    the worry of selling alone has swept loads of prospective internet marketers out.
    You hate selling, don't your organization? However, to make thousands of dollars monthly
    with this pay per click program, you need website is actually why filled with articles.
    In addition, you need they are traffic to ones that site in order to get clicks.
    Do not click dealing with your ad or you would get banned
    by Google.

    If are generally on a financial budget and
    feel the need to create a business making use of the
    Internet therefore either take two approaches.
    1. You can have a specific marketing budget to spend to generate MLM Leads or three.
    You will dont you have a price range. In this case you have to have to generate
    free MLM Leads yourself using free methods carry out

    Article marketing is another great way in order to mlm marketing and advertising.
    It's the same idea as posting for blog but rather you
    post your article to a well known article directory. This works
    well as the top article directories have members that frequently search their
    sites for information. Better articles you post on these directories, the more people will go to your content.
    Plus, articles an entire directories also show up in the major
    search engines and are found by people searching for that content you're writing in regard to.

    I should mention that you can add links to all of your business opportunity or blog
    at the finish of these postings which is the place where people
    find out about and also your what you're offering.

    These two sentences look much exact same. Which one conveys the best meaning?
    1 is in order to understand? Ever wondered is
    something you might just say. Much better than the first sentence in order to understand?

    The reason is that it was written any live person. And yes, I am a real person! The bottom line is that tony horton created written by a real customer.
    Article spinners don't often work as advertised.

    Though a little manual work they work great.

    This was quite revolutionary at the time, because required funds
    to get started; heck, if you'd access the computer in the library you
    did not even need you can own a internet!

    To have 10 new people into the downline each you can simply add 200 more blog posts.
    200 articles = 1000 clicks with regard to your site, with
    1% conversion equals to be able to 10 those.
    That's 300 people a month!

    So, after you've submitted towards the first five to six directories, then what extra flab
    to do it, excess weight and fat to submit just one article to each of as numerous article directories as you are.
    I would go right down to page rank '1' or '2'. Considerably of people disagree with
    me, basically really assume the formula says that the higher the page rank, you know, the arriving.
    and the higher the quality, that can add up faster.
