When I can come to know about low blood pressure ?

When is blood pressure too low ? I just took my BP standing up and it was 88/66. Sitting it s 100/70. My heart rate is also higher than usual at 116 at rest (it s usually 50 s or 60 s). I m not on any type of drugs or alcohol... I should also mention that I have a headache and feel lightheaded when I stand up; and I feel warm.

Normal blood pressure reading is an average of 120/80. 140/90 is borderline and can be regulated with just an adjustment in your diet, while above has to be treated by a health provider. Below 100/80 is considered low and will result in dizzy spells and if left untreated will lead up to frequent block outs. In most cases low blood pressure is as a result of under eating, dehydration or deficiency in certain nutrients (anemia). However in less common cases it is as a result of some other underlining health problems. The following link will give you some advise you may use in an effort to normalize your blood pressure.;_ylt=AvQApTqrQWgYbEI7s_3zDa_ty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20090408173726AAcmSrM&show=7#profile-info-NBdFo70kaa Average heart rate for male should be 70 bpm and 75 bpm for female. There are a number of factors inclusive of genetics, fitness and age that will determine a normal variation in these readings. I think however that you should speak with your doctor about that.
