i had my blood pressure taken the other day and it was 98/60. some say this is much too low but i think its fine. i dont consume very much sodium and i get a lot of physical activity so shouldnt this be normal?

I don't know, but my blood pressure was 110/58 the other day and my naturopath told me that the 58 part was too low and a sign of dehydration. I should drink more water.

It's a bit low but not a problem so long as you are not having symptoms. I tend to have low BP. My Dr. told me to eat more salt.

I work with a doctor in a doctor's office and that is a little low, but nothing to be concerned about like the last post said as long as you are not having sx's.

Symptoms of low blood pressure are usually nausea, vomiting and dizziness/light headedness. If you feel fine it's probably normal for you. Water is always good though! As a nurse I take many blood pressures and for some people this range is normal.
