To establish a diagnosis, it is necessary to find the cause of your low blood pressure. So your doctor, in addition to reviewing your symptoms and medical history, and performing a physical examination, will order laboratory tests and studies such as an electrocardiogram, tilt table test, and X-rays.
The treatment will depend on the cause of your low blood pressure, but it may consist of increasing, reducing, or suspending the dose of certain medications. However, you can help normalize your blood pressure by modifying your habits to adopt a healthy lifestyle by:
- Drinking more water.
- Increasing your sodium intake, as long as your doctor recommends it.
- Wearing compression stockings/socks to prevent blood from pooling in the legs.
