Question Low Blood pressure at night?

I am writing to find a possible answer to her blood pressure dropping at night. Her blood pressure during the day is about 120-130 over 72-82 but at night her blood pressure drops to about 68-90 over 38-50 and her pulse will be about 52-62. During the low blood pressure episode she will tell me that she does not feel good and tired. This has been going on for about 3 months, with several trips to the ER room. She has even passed out once on her way to the bathroom. The ER room says her blood work is normal, EKG normal. The only other medical problem during this time has been her glucose has been up (140-250) and down (normal). She is not a diabetic and takes no diabetic medicine. She is keeping a journal of the glucose levels per her doctor. Her father and several brothers were diabetic. When her blood pressure is low, I have her prop up her legs above her body, while laying down. That seems to bring up her blood pressure a little bit 5-10 points. Thanks for reading and any help is appreciated. Don

If she has become diabetic, then that could explain some of her health problems. When the body's handling of insulin is dysfunction all hell breaks loose in the body and creates very unhealthy conditions.
