Low Blood Pressure: Factors And Conditions That Make You Develop It

Low blood pressure or low blood pressure is considered the opposite of high blood pressure or high blood pressure. Occurs when blood pressure is lower than normal blood pressure (upper limit 90 mmHg, lower limit 60 mmHg).

According to Mayo Clinic health publications, low blood pressure (low blood pressure) is just as dangerous as high blood pressure (high blood pressure) because it can seriously harm a person's health.

Causes of low blood pressure

Blood pressure changes throughout the day and depends on the following factors:

• Stress

• Posture at the same time

• Diet (food and drink)

• Time

• Breathing

• Approximately

• physical condition

However, the following medical conditions can cause a rapid drop in blood pressure:

• Pregnancy – During pregnancy, several changes cause the blood vessels to dilate rapidly. These changes can lead to a drop in blood pressure and are common during the first 24 weeks of pregnancy.

• Heart conditions - Low heart rate, heart attack, heart failure and heart disease can cause low blood pressure. • Dehydration – When the body does not have enough water, blood volume can decrease, which can lower blood pressure.

• Bleeding - Losing too much blood from injuries or internal bleeding causes a drop in blood volume. This can cause a rapid drop in blood pressure.

• Severe infection - When a severe infection enters the blood, it causes a rapid drop in blood pressure and a potentially life-threatening condition called 'septic shock'.

• Deficiency of essential nutrients: When the diet is deficient in nutrients such as folic acid, iron and vitamin B12, the body does not produce enough red blood cells (anemia). This can lead to a drop in blood pressure.
