Brief Answer:
You have to increase intake of salt and fluids.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. For maintaining your blood pressure you have to increase the intake of salt and fluids. You can take tea, various soups like chicken and vegetable soups. Taking milk and milk products is also good. If still not helping then a consultation with a cardiologist should be done. Echo cardiography should be carried out to rule out any cardiac problems in such case.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
