Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Thanks for your question, as you are 66 years ,and having lung disease on inhalers, you have not mentioned clearly , what is 60 , is it diastolic blood pressure or heart rate?
So please mention whether you having hypertension /diabetes/ any other cardiac problem, and also whether you are using any hypertension medications.
Finally if your diastolic pressure is 60 and you does not have any symptoms of giddiness, no need to worry, some females will normally have that reading.
Feel free to write for further queries, and details of your medical history.
