Is he taking any medication

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
Dizziness upon standing, headache, Giddiness can be explained by low BP.
But why is he having low BP.
Is he taking any medication? Is their any fever or other sign of any infection?
I would also recommend you have a 2D Echo done to rule out any possible cardiac abnormality causing such low BP.
In the meanwhile I will recommend him to have plenty of water with salt in it. Also take good meal all 3 times of day.

Thanks and take care
