Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Low bloods pressure can be an emergency when a person can feel faint or is not responsive. A person needs medical assistance in these cases.

If there is no apparent underlying cause, low blood pressure may be controlled by increasing the amount of salt in your diet, increasing your fluid intake to avoid dehydration, limitingalcohol consumption, wearing compression stocking to prevent blood pooling in legs, improving your diet to ensure you are getting enough nutrients, and eating small low-carb meals.

In addition, your physician may prescribe medications such as fludrocortisone, Orvaten or Proamatine to treat your low blood pressure.
