Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Some people have naturally occurring low blood pressure and there is no need for treatment. Doctors don't generally treat low blood pressure unless there are symptoms.

If you are having symptoms (often dizziness or weakness, nausea or fatigue), then adding salt to your diet can help. A lack of iron in the body (anemia) can sometimes be a cause of low blood pressure- you can have a blood test to see if this is the case and if so, add iron to your diet.
