Low blood pressure

Posted by @popolopo, Sep 22, 2016

Mine was 116/58,pulse 52. Kind of low,I have low thyroid,wondering if synthroid is working. I have a testing machine at home so will monitor more closely.

hi @popolopo, I saw that you posted this information in the blood pressure and hypertension discussion. I’d like to bring @johnwburns @tbeckys @jmbjar @patreats5674 into this discussion.

Popolopo: Do you typically have low blood pressure? Do you monitor your blood pressure daily?

Hi,
So you are just noting it or is it associated with symptoms such as fatigue?
The BP numbers are pretty good, except for the diastolic which is on the low side. The BP numbers aren’t important in themselves, its the association with symptoms that matters.
Hypothyroidism is more than enough to explain it. You can’t know if your thyroid is in range unless you get a TSH and Free T4 so ask your doctor for one.

Hope this helps.

Interesting. My BP numbers have been as low as 82/56 but my thyroid tests normal. I have had low BP all my life. I wonder if my doctor is missing something?

When my husband was running regularly, his BP and pulse were routinely low. Whenever he goes some where and they take the readings, he had to tell them he’s a runner. Now he walks, and the readings continue.
Also my docs tell me that occasional low or high is ok for me. I keep a list of my readings for an overall picture.
This might or might not apply to you. I do not have thyroid issues. Rosemary
