Suggest remedy for fluctuation in BP and weakness
Hello Ms. XXXX,
Welcome and thank you for your query.
Your observation that your blood pressure drops and heart rate increases after a meal is very relevant. After a meal the blood flow to your digestive system increases for proper digestion. This leads to a redistribution of the blood pumped out of the heart and also a drop in the systematic blood pressure. The body tries to compensate and to increase the amount of blood pumped out of the heart by increasing the heart rate. The feeling of dizziness is due to the decreased blood supply to the brain due to the redistribution of blood and the lower systemic blood pressure. If you lie down during these episodes, you would feel better.
Once the digestion and absorption of the food is over, the BP, heart rate and the blood flow in the systemic circulation return to normal and you feel fine.
If your BP doesn't go above 145/90 without Losartan, you may not require it.
Do get back to me if you have more queries.
