What Is the Definition of Low Blood Pressure?

Q:
What is the definition of low blood pressure?

A:
Low blood pressure is also called hypotension. After you check your blood pressure at home or have it checked in a hospital, you can get two numbers, including a top number and a bottom number. If two numbers are lower than 90/60, that means your blood pressure is low.

If you find that you have a low blood pressure, ask your doctor for his or her professional advice and follow his or her suggestion. Neither ignore low blood pressure nor overreact to it.
