Low Blood Pressure?

Hi, guys. I just wanted to know if you think I might have low blood pressure. I've never really had problems with high blood pressure, as every time I check, the diastolic number is always "well contained". But sometimes, the numbers are on the low side. Let me give you some readings.

SYSTOLIC...DIASTOLIC...PULSE
126............61..............78
120............66..............91
120............61..............91
111............44..............86
116............65..............91
106............62..............92
114............53..............97
125............69..............95
129............60..............94
112............54..............83
117............54..............92

I'm just wondering. The 60's numbers don't bother me, but what concerns me is the numbers that are in the low 50's and 40's. I got a bit frightened when I saw 44. Do you think I have low blood pressure? My mom has been known to have low blood pressure, and my dad has high blood pressure if that information helps. Thanks again.

Joe

Re: Low Blood Pressure?

Joe,

Unless you suffer symptoms of dizziness on standing up, there's nothing to worry about. A life with low BP is well correlated with a long life.

If it bothers you, you can probably get it up several points with salty snacks or canned soups.
