What is low blood pressure and high blood pressure?
For most adults, a normal blood pressure is usually less than 120/80 mm Hg. Low blood pressure is blood pressure that is lower than 90/60 mm Hg. Some people have low blood pressure all the time, and it is normal for them.
What is High blood pressure?
High blood pressure is a common condition that affects the body’s arteries. It’s also called HYPERTENSION. If you have high blood pressure, the force of the blood pushing against the artery walls is consistently too high. The heart has to work harder to pump blood.
Symptoms of High Blood Pressure
Most people with high blood pressure have no symptoms, even if blood pressure readings reach dangerously high levels. You can have high blood pressure for years without any symptoms.
A few people with high blood pressure may have:
Shortness of breath.
However, these symptoms aren’t specific. They usually don’t occur until high blood pressure has reached a severe or life-threatening stage
Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to complications including:
– Heart attack or stroke. Hardening and thickening of the arteries due to high blood pressure or other factors can lead to a heart attack, stroke or other complications.
– Heart failure: When you have high blood pressure, the heart has to work harder to pump blood. The strain causes the walls of the heart’s pumping chamber to thicken.
– Kidney problems: High blood pressure can cause the blood vessels in the kidneys to become narrow or weak. This can lead to kidney damage.
– Eye problems: Increased blood pressure can cause thickened, narrowed or torn blood vessels in the eyes. This can result in vision loss.
– Changes with memory or understanding: Uncontrolled high blood pressure may affect the ability to think, remember and learn.
What is low blood pressure?
Low blood pressure, also known as HYPOTENSION, is when your blood pressure is much lower than expected. It can happen either as a condition on its own or as a symptom of a wide range of conditions. It may not cause symptoms. But when it does, you may need medical attention.
Low blood pressure can cause fainting or dizziness because the brain doesn’t receive enough blood.
Low blood pressure can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include family history of low blood pressure or medication side effects.
Rising slowly from a sitting or lying position may help ease symptoms. Avoiding alcohol, drinking plenty of water and eating small, low-carbohydrate meals along with fruits and vegetables may also help.

Can low blood pressure cause a stroke?
Heart problems or stroke: Low blood pressure can cause your heart to try to compensate by pumping faster or harder. Over time, that can cause permanent heart damage and even heart failure. It can also cause problems like deep vein thrombosis and stroke because blood isn’t flowing like it should, causing clots to form.
Take medication that can lower blood pressure
What happens when your blood pressure is low?
If your blood pressure drops too low, your body’s vital organs do not get enough oxygen and nutrients.

Is 110/60 too low blood pressure?
As a general guide, the ideal blood pressure for a young, healthy adult is between 90/60 and 120/80. If you have a reading of 140/90, or more, you have high blood pressure (hypertension). This puts you at greater risk of serious health conditions, such as strokes or heart attacks.
