Low Blood Pressure
Blood pressures vary, depending on such factors as age, race, sex, and environment. On rare occasions, individuals may have medical problems that cause low blood pressure. Among such conditions are some types of heart disease, hormonal deficiencies, and malnutrition. In these cases, the hypotension will be corrected by the treatment of the medical problem.High blood pressure is recognized as a potentially life-threatening condition for which medical intervention is appropriate.Whether low blood pressure produces a syndrome is controversial. Several studies have suggested that low blood pressure may be associated with nonspecific symptoms such as tiredness and feeling faint. Because these symptoms are often attributed to psychological problems, some authorities believe that psychological dysfunction may be associated with hypotension.
