Re: Hypotension and exercise?
I have orthostatic hypotension also. I found that I had to modify the intense workouts I used to do. So now I practice yoga three times a week and occasionally use the machines, but I avoid anything where I need to lift my arms over my head. And don't brush off yoga, it's not for wimps. I am in the best shape of my life right now, and I was a faithful Jazzerciser for 20 years before.
I drink 64 oz of water with 1 teaspoon salt added, every day. It does not bloat me but helps keep my blood volume up and really helps the lightheadedness. It was prescribed by my cardiologist and was the best advice I ever got. Good luck!
