Check Your Blood Pressure. Because of the dangers associated with high blood pressure, everyone is trying to lower it. But some research has shown that blood pressure being too low might not be good either.
Scientific evidence suggest that low blood pressure can cause medical symptoms such as “fatigue,” “dizziness,” “headaches” as well as “anxiety” and “depression.”
Most people experience lower blood pressure in the mornings after they have been lying down for hours. To avoid the dizziness, and faintness when getting out of bed. Many doctors suggest rising slowly to a sitting position in bed. Because rising up to quickly results in a drop of your blood pressure.
While you are sitting, stretch and take a deep breath to help increase your heart rate. This will help raise your blood pressure. Then, rise slowly and stand, continuing to take deep breaths for a moment.
But if you feel dizzy when standing up after you have been sitting for awhile, remember to stretch, breathe deeply and rise slowly to avoid a sudden drop in blood pressure.
As for older people it might be wise to drink a lot of water each day to avoid getting a low blood volume from dehydration. This can also contribute to low blood pressure.
In addition, regular exercise also helps prevent blood pressure that is too low. Exercise keeps the heart muscle strong and beating regularly. People experience drops in blood pressure when the heart is not beating quickly enough. Exercise helps avoid a heartbeat that is too slow.
Finally, if you are taking medication or on a diet to help lower your blood pressure, do not stop your routine without talking to your doctor. If you think you suffer from low blood pressure, call your doctor. They can help determine whether your blood pressure is healthy for you.
