Suggest cure for low BP?

My 15 year old daughter is having continually low blood pressure readings. She is not dehydrated. She has had blood work done and an EKG that came back normal. The school nurse has been taking her blood pressure twice a week at school. She called and told me she is having a hard time taking her blood pressure because she can t even hear it to read it. What do you think is going on?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

For this reason, I recommend consulting with her attending physician for a physical exam and some tests:
- thyroid hormone levels for possible thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalance
- complete blood count for anemia
- cortisol plasma levels for possible adrenal gland dysfunction.

You should discuss with her doctor on the above tests.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
