Low blood pressure is a pressure that causes signs or signs of decreased blood flow to the arteries and veins. When the blood flow is very low, oxygen and nutritious substances do not reach the vital senses like brain, heart and kidneys, due to which these senses do not work normally and this can cause permanent damage. Unlike hypertension, low blood pressure is basically characterized by symptoms and signs, not specific pressure numbers. Some people have a blood pressure of 90/50 but they do not show any symptoms of low blood pressure and hence they do not have low blood pressure, however in people who have high blood pressure and if their blood pressure falls to 100/60 Symptoms of low blood pressure begin to appear.
If someone feels dizziness or nausea due to low blood pressure or falls unconscious while standing, it is called orthostatic hypertension. The normal person is able to control the effect caused by low pressure on standing. But when there is not enough blood supply in the cyclic artery due to adequate blood pressure then the person may have chest pain or a heart attack. When there is insufficient blood supply in the kidneys, kidneys cannot remove wastes like urea and creatine from the body, due to which their quantity in the blood is increased.

“Normal” blood pressure is seen in a range rather than number, as it varies from person to person. Blood pressure that is low for one person may be normal for another. But if the blood pressure is less than 90 / 60mm then it is a symptom of severe disease. There can be many reasons for this such as
– Postural or orthostatic hypotension: This means a rapid decrease in blood pressure. This happens when you have been sitting for a long time and suddenly stand up and start doing something. Due to gravity, this situation is created by moving large amount of blood towards the feet.
Neurally-mediated hypotension: It is more common in children. This condition of blood pressure is formed when standing for a long time. When there is no communication between the heart and the brain, tension, pain, or fear are created.
Postprandial hypotension: It is a decrease in blood pressure just after meals. It usually occurs in adults. Digestion is a complex process that takes a lot of blood and energy. In some people, when blood flow increases for digestion, there is a decrease in blood going to the brain and other organs. Because of this, the blood pressure comes down rapidly.
Severe hypotension: This condition is created when someone gets a shock. This can be very fatal for life, as the amount of blood going to major organs decreases. This is also caused by excessive bleeding in the accident. Apart from this, due to severe infection, heart attack, allergic attack or anaphylaxis, this condition of law blood pressure is also formed.
Hypotension during pregnancy: This is a common disease, but too much law blood pressure can be a symptom of ectopic pregnancy. When the fetus stops in the fallopian tube or abdomen instead of the uterus, it is called ectopic pregnancy.
Hormonal disorder: It is also a cause of law blood pressure. Also, thyroid disorder, parathyroid dysfunction and law blood sugar (hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes) also cause law blood pressure.
Dehydration: This is another common cause of blood pressure. Lack of water in the body affects the blood supply to vital organs.
