Low blood pressure, also called hypotension, is a condition characterized by inadequate flow of blood to the organs of the body. It may cause strokes, heart attacks, and kidney failure. Its most severe form is shock. Some experts define low blood pressure as readings under 90 systolic or 60 diastolic. Even one number in the readings is enough for the diagnosis of this condition. In other words, if your systolic pressure is a perfect 115, but your diastolic pressure is 50, you’re considered to have lower than normal pressure.

Signs and symptoms

When the blood pressure is not sufficient to deliver enough blood to the organs of the body, they malfunction may be permanently damaged. For example, if insufficient blood flows to the brain, brain cells do not receive enough oxygen and nutrients, and a person can feel lightheaded, dizzy and weak, or even faint. The symptoms will depend upon which organ in the body is lacking the adequate blood flow, and are most prominent when a sufferer goes from a lying or sitting position to a standing position (orthostatic hypotension).

Causes of low blood pressure

A number of medical conditions can cause low blood pressure. They include:
Heart problems: extremely low heart rate (bradycardia), heart valve problems, weakened heart muscle, heart attack and heart failure. These conditions may cause low blood pressure due to your body’s inability to circulate enough blood.

Endocrine problems. Hormones are the messengers that help make adjustments in the body’s function. There are connections between the pituitary gland in the brain and glands in the body that help regulate various physiological function. Abnormally low pituitary function will also cause low blood pressure.

An under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) or overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) can result in this condition as well, as well as adrenal gland abnormalities that cause a decrease in the cortisone hormone levels in the body. People with diabetes may develop low blood pressure when their blood sugar significantly drops down. If the blood sugar gets too high (hyperglycemia), dehydration and low blood pressure may also occur, though through a different mechanism.

Dehydration. When you become dehydrated, your body loses more water than it takes in. Even mild dehydration can cause weakness, dizziness and fatigue. Fever, vomiting, severe diarrhea, overuse of diuretics and strenuous exercise can all lead to dehydration.

Blood loss. Losing a lot of blood from a major injury or internal bleeding reduces the amount of blood in your body, leading to a severe drop in blood pressure.

Severe infection (septicemia). Septicemia can happen when an infection in the body enters the bloodstream. These conditions can lead to a life-threatening drop in blood pressure called septic shock.

Severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Common triggers of anaphylaxis include foods, certain medications, insect venoms and latex. Anaphylaxis can cause breathing problems, hives, itching, a swollen throat and a drop in blood pressure.

Lack of nutrients in your diet. A lack of the Vitamins B–12 and Folate can cause anemia, a condition in which your body doesn’t produce enough red blood cells, thus triggering low blood pressure.

However, the fact that psychological problems are a far more frequent cause of low blood pressure is often overlooked. Though to a lesser degree, but prolonged disappointment, frustration, exposure to stress and other emotional upheavals may result in a subnormal blood pressure. Other important contributing factors include catastrofizing thinking, irrational worries and overwork. Vasovagal reaction is a common condition in which a healthy person temporarily develops low blood pressure, slow heart rate, and sometimes fainting. A vasovagal reaction is typically brought on by emotions of fear or pain such as having blood drawn, starting an intravenous infusion, or by gastrointestinal upset.
Another important thing to remember is the fact that a side effect for a large number of medication.

Medications that can cause low blood pressure:

  • Diuretics (water pills)
  • Alpha blockers
  • Beta blockers
  • Drugs for Parkinson’s disease
  • Certain types of antidepressants (tricyclic antidepressants)
  • Sildenafil (Viagra), particularly in combination with another heart medication, nitroglycerine

Postural (orthostatic) hypotension is a sudden drop in blood pressure when an individual stands up from a sitting, squatting, or supine (lying) position. When a person stands up, gravity causes blood to settle in the veins in the legs, so less blood reaches the heart for pumping, and as a result the blood pressure drops.

Other causes of postural hypotension include dehydration, adrenal insufficiency, prolonged bed rest, diabetes-related damage to the autonomic nerves, alcoholism-related damage to the autonomic nerves, and certain rare neurological syndromes (for example, Shy-Drager syndrome) that damage the autonomic nerves. Oftentimes, postural hypotension typically occurs in young and healthy individuals. After prolonged standing, the individual’s heart rate and blood pressure drops, causing dizziness, nausea, and, frequently, fainting. In these individuals, the autonomic nervous system wrongly responds to prolonged standing by directing the heart to slow down and the veins to dilate. 

The most essential requirement for any medical practitioner who is treating a case of a low blood pressure is establishing the cause. If this is done correctly, treatment should eliminate the cause and not subdue symptoms of the condition. For example, if a medication taken by the patient is causing low blood pressure, either the dose should be adjusted, or the intake of the drug should be immediately stopped on consulting the attending physician.

  • to detect particular allergens (more than 300 kinds) without skin damage, leading to low blood pressure, (domestic, environmental, industrial, food);
  • to reveal the hidden psychological causes of  illnesses; (fear, disappointment, frustration,  worries, etc.)
  • to determine the level of psychological stress and physical exhaustion;
  • to determine the level of tension or exhaustion of the endocrine and  immune systems;
  • to determine any kind of  disease оr functional disorder (including heart problems, endocrine problems: adrenal gland, thyroid gland, pituitary, pancreas);
  • to determine deficits in vitamins, micro-elements, minerals and enzymes;
