Your blood pressure is 106 over 57?

Blood pressure 106/57 - what does it mean?

Your blood pressure reading of 106/57 indicates Hypotension. This means your blood pressure is lower than the usual with values at a systolic (upper) value under 105 mmHg and a diastolic (lower) value of under 60 mmHg.

However, in most cases this is no reason to be concerned. If your blood pressure is only slightly under said values and there are no health impairments a hypotense blood pressure might be alright.

By the way: Your systolic value of 106 mmHg is better than your diastolic value and would classify as Ideal. But if you are getting two different types of classification for your blood pressure it is correct to choose the one that is considered worse.

What you should know about a blood pressure of 106/57

Though a value of "too low" does not exist in the classification of the WHO it is very usual to classify a blood pressure unter 105/60 as hypotension. Your blood pressure of 106/57 falls into this range.

Symptoms of hypotension can be:

  • Paleness, cold hands and feet, feeling cold
  • easy tiredness, concentration problems
  • dizziness, "blacking out"
  • headache
  • syncopes, collapses

If those symtpoms appear directly after changing your body position (ex. getting up fast) they will most likely disappear in a matter of minutes.

What you should do:

If you have circulatory problems, dizziness or constantly feel like you are on the verge of passing out, please contact a doctor.

A salt rich diet and staying hydrated can help to increase your blood pressure.

These actions can also help strengthen your body:

  • Regular sports and exercise
  • stimulating herbs (like rosemary)
  • warm and cold showers (end cold)
  • slow getting up, especially in the morning - stretch and extend!

Please note that coffee and drinks which contain caffeine will only increase your blood pressure for a short period of time.
