A blood pressure of 90/60 mmHg is very NORMAL for a 40 year-old housewife. That indicates that you are not currently at risk for complications of hypertension (high blood pressure). If you want to reduce your risks for cardiovascular disease, the cholesterol and weight are areas that can be improved. Your blood pressure is unlikely to be the cause of your fatigue, unless you also have orthostasis: your blood pressure drops and heart rate increases when you stand up from a lying position. This can be caused by being dehydrated (not drinking enough) or by certain diseases, but also many otherwise healthy people have this. Low blood pressure in an otherwise healthy person is NOT a risk factor for any disease. Blood pressure can be increased by drinking more fluids, being more liberal with the use of salt, and exercising more. There are also some medications that can be used if your doctor thinks that this blood pressure is too low for you and can be responsible for some of your symptoms.
