    Your blood pressure is not reduced unless you are having problems upon standing or you pass out frequently, or else you have end stage coronary heart failure. Please keep in mind that is definitely an 'average'. Now, what your typical is will be different for everyone. People who exercise regularly or are sports tend to have lower pressures. The very best number represents the amount of function your heart does if this contracts, and the bottom quantity is the resting state. So long as there are no underlying problems the very last thing you want to do is raise your stress. Some people have lower demands and that's not a bad thing.

    A slow heart rate (bradycardia) can decrease the amount of blood pumped by the heart and so can cause low blood pressure. The resting heart rate for a healthy adult is between 60 and 100 beats/minute. Bradycardia (resting heart rates slower than 60 beats/minute) does not always cause low blood pressure.

    One of the most common causes of low blood pressure is insufficient amount of food intake, i.e. if you’re on dieting, you might be having low blood pressure. It’s good to have balanced diet instead starving.

    At times weakened heart muscles cause low blood pressure. This situation can cause the heart to fail and reduce the amount of blood it pumps. One common cause of weakened heart muscle is the death of a large portion of the heart's muscle due to a single, large heart attack or repeated smaller heart attacks.

    Dehydration is one of the causes of low blood pressure. It’s common among patients with prolonged nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Large amounts of water are lost especially if the person does not drink adequate amounts of fluid to replace the depleted water. You might be dehydrated and so getting low blood pressure.

    At times unnecessary tensions can cause low blood pressure. If you’re suffering from any such situation, it’s best to avoid tensions and stay calm.
