    what's the ideal blood pressure for SCI...mine is 70 over 45

    I am an Indian female, 32 years of age, live in Mumbai. Quadriplegic-C5 since 2003.

    Presently I am in Seattle, U. S. for next 5 months.

    I checked my blood pressure today after a very long time and it came out to be 70 over 45.
    the last time I checked, it was 90 over 65 in 2011.

    Also I would like to mention that I did fasting till 1 pm as I had to do the blood test too. I was feeling little weak at that time.

    My blood pressure is low. Can you please put some light on what the ideal blood pressure should be for a quad....

    Does the neurological condition affect the blood pressure...
    Does my empty stomach and the weakness as a result plummeted my BP...

    please guide. thanks.

    You should rehydrate yourself and take your blood pressure again.90/60 is a common baseline.
    Wre you sitting up? did you have on hose? Abdominal binder? These help keep the blood pressure from dropping when sitting up

    If nothing's wrong, e.g., an infection, adding more salt to your diet may help. My doctor told me that.
