Heart problems: Among the heart conditions that can lead to low blood pressure are an abnormally low heart rate ( bradycardia ), problems with heart valves, heart attack and heart failure. Your heart may not be able to circulate enough blood to meet your bodyâ€™s needs.
Low blood pressure is blood pressure that is lower than 90/60 mm Hg. Some people have low blood pressure all the time, and it is normal for them. Other people experience a sudden drop in blood pressure or have low blood pressure that may be linked to a health problem.
Low blood pressure (hypotension) occurs when blood pressure drops below the normal range. Doctors generally define low blood pressure as 90/60 mm Hg or below, commonly said as â€ś90 over 60â€ť Usually, doctors only treat hypotension if it is severe enough to cause symptoms.
How to really know if you have low blood pressure?
Blood pressure at 120/80 or lower is considered "normal". Low blood pressure is considered dangerous when it drops suddenly or is accompanied by symptoms, such as dizziness or fainting. Generally there is no specific number at which blood pressure is considered to be too low, but considered abnormal if you do have symptoms.
