Low blood pressure , some advices?

Hi , I suffer from low blood pressure.. yesterday evenight , once finished to dinner , I felt very weak, some nausea, i felt my heart beat really speedful , I checked my blood pressure and it was 110 - 72 with 59 heart's beats per minute. I'm obviously in paleo , how can I turn up my pressure? I can't drink coffee cuz it give me diarrhea. There's something that could help me?

Second and last question , I'm gone paleo first of all for an ibs , and now my ibs is better , but not fixed at all. One year ago , when I ate everything ( as medicians told me to do -.- ) I made the leaky gut's exam and it was negative , So I did not have a leaky gut. But in the web , talking about paleo, I red that ibs is always correlated to leaky gut... so in my case? Could exist an ibs without having a leaky gut?

Thank youuuu !

(Sorry for the delay, I've been out of town) soy, corn, rice, chocolate, eggs, shellfish. I also suspect garlic, coconut, and aloe but was not specifically tested for them.

My blood pressure is usually in the 98 - 50 range, and it's fine. Your numbers look good to me. I was diagnosed with "IBS" also a few years ago. Paleo helps, but fixing your digestion takes a long time. You can try adding probiotics and fermented foods, and a digestive enzyme table also.

Intestinal permeability is normally diagnosed with a lactulose/mannitol test: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10902869

+1, yup more salt, and minerals - especially not modern processed salt, but rather salt that still has the extra trace minerals attached to it. (So sea-salt.) Also, avoid stevia as the only side effect it has is to lower blood pressure.

An addendum... I DO eat high water vegetables/foods later in the day but first thing in the morning and right before bed don't sit right and seem to exacerbate my symptoms.

I've asked this same question before. Of the things suggested to me, drinking less water (I know crazy... right?) more salt, more magnesium, potassium, and calcium (I make a mix of lo-salt, natural calm + calcium, and sea salt and drink with mineral water,) eating low water foods and skipping my previous "big ass glass of water upon waking" from 8-11 AM, plenty of vigorous walking, and sleeping enough. I've heard getting enough iodine will help too, but I haven't tried that yet besides increasing my seafood. I'll be getting some kelp capsules pretty soon. If I have good results I'll do an edit later.

Hope that helps.

I think your blood pressure and heart rate are absolutely fine, provided the measurement was taken after sitting for a few minutes (like not after racing up two flights of stairs).

And I'd be really interested in that leaky gut exam: What on earth did they test?

Hi I have low blood pressure and multiple food allergies. I have found that my blood pressure drops when I am having an allergic reaction. Taking allergy medicine drops it more - to the point of being unsafe and having a rapid heatbeat (especially when lying down). I also have some stomach/intestinal inflammation, probably from the allergies. While it is fairly rare, you may want to watch for any signs of allergies. It took more than 10 years before my food allergies were diagnosed.

I guess, taking serious medical exams regarding your current situation is the best move to do. A friend of a friend of mine is also suffering this kind of illness and they shared to me that taking super foods like berries is a good choice but if you're in tight budget, food supplements would help you have normal blood pressure back again.

your bp looks fine, but your hr is a little low. i actually feel bad when mine is in the 50s. you can test for postural orthostatic tachycardia and hypotension by taking your hr and bp lying down and not moving for 15 minutes, then take it when you stand up. if your hr increases more than 30 beats per minute and your bp drops lower, then you might have adrenal issues and low salt.

i have this, i drink less water and when i do drink water, i put a little salt and lemon juice in it.

also test your blood sugar!

That is a perfectly normal blood pressure. Mine is usually lower than that.
