chronic hypotension
I have chronic hypotension. I am on effortil perlong capsules (2 a day) and my blood pressure always stays below 80/40 and at best 90/60 .I pass out often and generally feel bad. Ive had all the tests and have no underlying illnesses. Please could you advise me if there is a diet plan or certain foods in particular that i could eat to raise my bloodpressure ( i already eat a lot of salt)
Thank You

Dear Nic
I am sorry to her about your bp problems. Besides increasing your salt intake moderately, there is really no dietary treatment for this condition.
Hope you feel better soon.
Best regards
