BP: How low is too low?

Q: What is the lowest your blood pressure can be and still be safe? Sometimes mine gets around 105/60. I have been watching my food intake now for about 3 weeks. My b.p. was about 135/84. I also walk and exercise about an hour each day. I used to take b.p . medicine (avalide) each day but wanted to get off it.

A: Blood pressure is too low when symptoms such as dizziness and feeling faint occur. The blood pressure measurement where symptoms develop varies from person to person. Age, level of fitness, medical problems and medications all influence how low a pressure your body can tolerate.
