Good evening, thanks for the question
Hypotension or low blood pressure is defined as systolic blood pressure less than 90 mmHg or diastolic less than 60 mmHg. In this case blood pressure is still classified in the normal range.
Complaints such as nausea, headaches, heartburn are more likely to cause irritation to the gastric mucosa, also called gastritis. This condition is often triggered by:
1. Eating patterns that are not good, such as late eating, spicy, sour foods, large food portions, fatty foods, high gas content.
2. Consumption of coffee or tea
4. Use of anti-pain medication and long-term herbal remedies without doctor's supervision
5. Smoking and alcohol consumption
6. Psychic stress
7. Personal hygiene and poor sanitation
Patients suspected of having gastritis need to be evaluated including accompanying symptoms, history of comorbidities, and certain risk factors. Then do a physical examination related to symptoms. In more severe cases, such as gastric ulcer or upper gastrointestinal bleeding, it is often necessary to have further examination such as endoscopy.
Handling is done by avoiding the precipitating factors above, regular and modest eating patterns, as well as treatments to suppress the production of gastric acid and the protection of the gastric mucosa.
Complaints of nausea can also be caused by the vitamin and mineral supplements mentioned earlier, which contain iron in them. To reduce nausea, you should consume supplements after eating.
Make further consultations with your doctor to evaluate your grandmother's condition. In the elderly physical complaints are often no longer typical, for example complaints such as gastric disorders above can be a symptom of heart blood vessel disorders that can be fatal. For this reason, a comprehensive direct examination is needed to determine the underlying disorder.
That's all, hope you can help
