 Lower blood pressure may be something you might want if suffering from high blood pressure. However, low blood pressure is far more dangerous than normal blood pressure.

Blood pressure is given in terms of two readings the systolic pressure or the pressure that the blood has on the arteries and diastolic pressure when the heart rests. So, if you have low blood pressure, your blood pressure is below 90/60 mm Hg.

The normal blood pressure is 120/80 mm Hg, but in low b.p cases it is below 90/60mmhg. However, if you have no symptoms despite of this condition, then it is not much 0f a concern. But this condition can decrease the amount of blood going to the brain, liver and other vital organs, which will result in decrease in their function.

If you notice that you have low blood pressure but you are fine then it is not a serious issue. However, low b.p is serious if your vital organs are starved. For example, if your brain does not get adequate blood supply, you will feel light-headed, loss of concentration and you may faint too. If the pressure drops suddenly then it is not good for the body. This can happen if you stand up very fast from a lying position. This is known as the postural hypotension.

This means that the heart or nervous system cannot respond correctly to sudden changes. The risk for low blood pressure is more as you age. This might be because the blood flow to heart muscle and brain decreases.

It is estimated that about 20% people over the age of 65 experience postural hypotension.

Causes of low blood pressure:

The blood pressure decreases below normal due these causes:

  • Pregnancy
  • Underactive thyroid or other hormonal problems like diabetes or low blood sugar levels.
  • Some of the OTC medications.
  • Overdose of medicines given for hypertension.
  • Heart fail
  • Improper beating of heart due to arrhythmias.
  • Dilation of blood vessels
  • Heat stroke
  • Liver disorder.

These are some conditions that can cause low blood pressure. However, if you are experiencing sudden drop in  pressure, then these causes might not hold.

Causes of sudden drop in blood pressure:

  • Excessive bleeding due to injury in an accident
  • Fever
  • Hypothermia
  • Hear muscle fail or heart fail
  • A very severe blood infection known as sepsis
  • Dehydration due to vomiting
  • An adverse drug reaction to any medication or alcohol consumption.
  • Allergy or anaphylaxis which interferes with the beating of the heart.

Who can have postural hypotension?

Postural hypotension is when there is sudden decrease in blood pressure when you stand up suddenly. The reasons can be various like dehydration, starving condition, weakness or being very tired. The chances of having postural hypotension increase with the following conditions like genetics, age, diet, physiological factors and infections too.

This is very common in people taking medications to lower blood pressure. You can notice that this condition goes away if you eat fully and do not starve.

However, there are certain drugs that act as causative agents for hypotension. There are two major categories:

  1. Drugs that treat hypertension such as beta blockers, diuretics, ACE inhibitors and other drugs.
  2. Drugs that are used for hypertension as  a side effect are nitrates, erectile dysfunction, Parkinson's disease, neuroleptics, anti-anxiety medications and drugs on Central nervous system.
