I have been having several health problems related to my heart and liver. I also have been having low blood pressure. The information I cannot seem to find is how low is too low? It has been running 90/49 and slightly lower for several weeks. I have just gotten home from the hospital for a little over a week. I am not sure when I should go back or call the doctor about my blood pressure. I know that normal is about 120/80 but how low should I let it get? Any input would be appreciated.
Thank You!!

hello
Hello dangerous low blood pressure is 50/33 , 90/49 is low enough but your body can still function. Remember blood pressure changes throughout the day.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Blood pressure varies and upper systolic should be above 80, in women it runs around 90 to 100 systolic so you are fine. Still stay hydrated and regular exercise and balanced diet lifestyle will help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
