blood pressure 121/49 is this low

Hello I'm Dr Chip

What's your pulse with that and what does your blood pressure usually run?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
my blood pressure always has a low bottom reading

And with that do you feel fine--no light headedness or faint feeling?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
this is done on a wrist monitor and tends to be eratic
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
very tired and have dizzy for some time

OK In that case while that reading might be fine for some people it's too low for you

Have you seen a doctor about this?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The most likely cause for this is a low thyroid condition but anemia can also be a cause

You need to have the doctor do blood tests for both of those

Please let me know if you need any more information

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
under active thyroid and anaemic

Sorry--was that a question?
