120/80 to 129/89 is normal BP
60 to 100 is normal heart rate
as your husband is suffering from hypothyroidism he is likely to develop low cardiac output resulting in low bp and low heart may lead to cardiac complication(myocardial infarction) at later stage so its better to control thyroid levels.
homoeopathy has good result for controlling thyroid complication.
good luck
