Low Blood Pressure Accompanied By Frequent Sweating, Is It A Weak Heart Disease?
Hello, good morning Aviva.
Blood pressure consists of the components systolic and diastole. The systolic (upper) component is the pressure generated when the heart is pumping blood (circulating blood throughout the body), while the diastole (lower) component is the pressure produced when the heart is expanding / filling (receiving blood from the rest of the body). Blood pressure is expressed in terms of systole per diastole, where the systolic number is definitely higher. Thus, the blood pressure you are referring to is likely 80/60 ... not 60/80.
Blood pressure 8060 belongs to low blood pressure (not weak blood pressure, huh ..). Blood pressure is said to be low if the systolic / upper part is less than 90, or the diastolic / lower part is less than 60.Symptoms of low blood pressure include frequent feeling dizzy spins, weakness, fainting, lightheadedness, short / fast breaths, palpitations tight / irregular, nausea, etc. Low blood pressure can be caused by several causes:
sudden changes in position (for example, standing up from a sitting position) standing for too long lack of fluids lack of hemoglobin in the blood (anemia) pregnancy large amounts of blood loss severe allergic reactions
Regarding weak heart, it is different from low blood pressure. Weak heart or heart failure can be described as heart failure. A weak heart condition is a condition in which the heart muscle is weakened and unable to pump blood to be circulated throughout the body as it should. The causes of a weak heart include:
coronary heart disease, which is a condition in which the blood vessels in the heart experience narrowing due to a buildup of blood fats. high blood pressure damage to the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy), this condition can be caused by genetic disorders, thyroid disease, fast and untreated heart rhythm, deficiency of vitamins and minerals, alcohol consumption, etc. Symptoms of this condition include: swelling of the legs, fatigue, irregular heart rhythm, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, coughing when lying down, and flatulence due to fluid accumulation.
Low blood pressure does not directly cause a weak heart condition, on the contrary, high blood pressure can cause a weak heart condition. However, blood pressure can be a symptom / sign of a weak heart condition. As long as you don't complain about other symptoms / signs of a weak heart condition (such as shortness of rest, fatigue, and swelling of both legs), then you don't have to worry too much that you have a weak heart condition.
Although low blood pressure is no more dangerous than a weak heart condition, it also cannot be called a "common illness" which can be left untreated. Some ways that can help treat low blood pressure include:
consumption of nutritious food consumption of more water (2-2.5 liters per day) does not change body position suddenly not consuming alcoholic beverages to find out the cause of blood pressure by checking with a doctor. The doctor may order several tests, such as blood lab tests (to see the possibility of anemia).
Regarding the complaints of frequent sweating hands, it has nothing to do with heart disease. This is just a myth. Sweating palms can be caused by many things, for example when a person is very excited, nervous, nervous, anxious, moving a lot, overheating, consuming spicy food, and even the condition of excessive sweating on the palms can also occur due to genetic / hereditary factors in the family.
That's all, hope it helps.
