We hear a lot in the news about the dangers of high blood pressure, but did you know that in certain circumstances, low blood pressure or hypotension is also a health concern? It doesn't always cause the same alarm as high blood pressure but you want your blood pressure closed to the optimal level. According the American Heart Association, "Within certain limits, the lower your blood pressure reading is, the better. There is no specific number at which day-to-day blood pressure is considered too low, as long as no symptoms of trouble are present."
If low blood pressure becomes a concern for you and you visit a cardiologist for treatment, the cause of your low blood pressure may be treated with medication, if necessary. If medication is not necessary, CardioSmart.org provides ways that low blood pressure can be prevented without medication:
Of course we don’t recommend trying to treat low blood pressure on your own. For example, if you have your blood pressure taken at a pharmacy or some other place that is not a medical facility, and it seems like your blood pressure is low, consult your doctor or visit a medical professional who specializes in cardiology.
