Dear doctor,

Sometimes I get low BP, low sugar blackouts and palpitations. Please advise.



Welcome to

Low blood pressure may be due to genetic factors. Do you have a family history of low blood pressure?

Hydration and correction of electrolytes might help you. Mix one teaspoon of Electral powder (essential electrolytes) in a glass of water and drink thrice a day for a month.

Low blood sugar and blackouts can occur if you do not eat your meals on time. Make sure you eat more frequent smaller meals, once in two hours. Alternatively, you can carry Hypotab tablets that contain a fixed dose of glucose. Pop it in when you feel a blackout coming.

Palpitation can occur if your hemoglobin level is low. Include green leafy vegetables in your diet.

If your blood counts are not good, you might need a supplement.

Get a complete blood count done and get back with the results to a general medicine physician online -->
