17 year old with low blood pressure. Have dizziness. Worried

Hi, I'm 17 years old, female, 5ft8 and weigh about 9 stone 1lb. My blood pressure is 96/55 which my mum said is low? I walk briskly for 1-1 1/2 hours a day, and do other activity like judo for half an hour on Fridays, and I train for the race for life on Thursdays. I tend to get dizzy and I feel cold a lot, but I drink enough. What do you think?

Thanks for your query.

Your blood pressure is low but still within normal range. This is not uncommon in women of your age and weight. If you are getting dizzy frequently, you should take a look at your dieting. It looks like you have a very active life, and you should keep doing these activities, but maybe you need to eat snacks before them.

Have a nice day, and good luck.
