I bought an Omron blood pressure monitor have just taken my first blood pressure reading. Then nine more readings as I was quite shocked by the readings. Five readings off each arm . Systolic ranged from 97 to 101. mostly 98 and 99. Diastolic ranged from 58 to 65. mostly 62 and 63. They seem awfully low. I wanted to ensure I didn t have high blood pressure (Use to use a lot of salt) but now find its lower than normal, which I m told is around 120/80. I vaguely remember having it check years ago by a GP and I think he said something like 120 or 130 over 70 or 80, something like that. Unfortunately he died a few years back, so there is no way I can confirm that. Could this be a problem? Why so low? Comments?
Hi, welcome to HCM. Blood pressure from 60-90 mm diastolic and 90-120mm systolic is normal. So you see you do not have low blood pressure. In fact you are well within the normal range. Please do not worry.
