Thanks for posting your query.
Are you suffering from high blood pressure?
Are you taking any medication for high blood pressure?
What is your blood pressure?
Hypothyroidism (for which thyronorm 150 you are taking) is associated with isolated diastolic hypertension.
Correction of hypothyroidism after supplementation with thyronorm may cause correction of isolated diastolic hypertension.
But if you are normotensive (with normal blood pressure), then there is no chance of lowering blood pressure below normal.
Considering your young age, few people have low blood pressure in range of 90/50 mm Hg, but still all these patients are asymptomatic.
One very important sign of normal blood pressure is "getting normal urine output".
Kidney is the only organ to whom blood supply is decreased if blood pressure drops by any means. If you are getting urine properly and if your systolic blood pressure 90-100 mm Hg, then it is accepted.
You can take salty liquids and biscuits.
As such no need of any medication.
If you have any other symptoms along with low blood pressure, then its a matter of work up.
Put your query if you have.
Best regards,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
