    blood pressure

    Back when I was fat and out of shape my blood pressure was 125/75. Now that cut some body fat and got in shape it's 97/56. This seems low to me, but every doctor I talked to said if I don't have any symptoms of low bp than I'm fine. So I guess I'm good to go.

    I have been doing tons of research on anabolic steroids and I'm still scratching the surface. One thing that I really haven't looked into to much is blood work. Now I know it's important to get it done, but if your blood pressure is as low as mine is it necessary?


    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, LOW blood pressure is just as serious as high blood pressure. Typically high blood pressure can be treated with medicine or by staying single.

    Dang that is a tad low for most people. Do you ever have dizzy spells when you stand up quickly or after a heavy lift?
    As stated above there's a lot of other issue to watch for besides BP problems on cycle.

    Blood work has absolutely nothing to do with blood pressure.
    Do you take any meds, Rx or otherwise?

    It seems low to me as well, but every doctor I talk to says if I don't feel dizzy when standing up quickly or have moments where I feel faint than I'm good. To answer your question though no I don't feel dizzy after heavy lifts.

    Oh I got you, but na I'm not on anything. I just figured it got that low because the weigh loss, extra cardiovascular activities, and the clean eating. Before all this it was about 125/79

    Should I be concerned about this when it comes to cycling?

    I WOULD be corned about it now. Honestly it is at least as dangerous as high blood pressure. That's low. You could easily take something that is a depressant or lowers your blood pressure, go to sleep and never wake up.

    That's a scary thought. I was on some pain meds awhile back for wisdom teeth.
    I'm not sure what to do about it though any advice?

    Maybe your blood pressure just runs normal. If your BP was in normal range when u said your were overweight.

    Do u happen to do a lot of cardio, running for example?

    I'm not trying to scare you, well maybe a little only because you really need to find out why it's that low. It may be fine but maybe not. Best to find out.

    Some experts define low blood pressure as readings lower than 90 mm Hg systolic or 60 mm Hg diastolic — you need to have only one number in the low range for your blood pressure to be considered lower than normal
    low blood pressure can be a sign of serious, even life-threatening disorders.

    99% chance we can rule out #1 unless your last name is Jenner.


    • Pregnancy. Because a woman's circulatory system expands rapidly during pregnancy, blood pressure is likely to drop. This is normal, and blood pressure usually returns to your pre-pregnancy level after you've given birth.
    • Heart problems. Some heart conditions that can lead to low blood pressure include extremely low heart rate (bradycardia), heart valve problems, heart attack and heart failure.
      These conditions may cause low blood pressure because they prevent your body from being able to circulate enough blood.
    • Endocrine problems. Thyroid conditions — such as parathyroid disease — adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease), low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and, in some cases, diabetes can trigger low blood pressure.
    • Dehydration. When you become dehydrated, your body loses more water than it takes in. Even mild dehydration can cause weakness, dizziness and fatigue. Fever, vomiting, severe diarrhea, overuse of diuretics and strenuous exercise can all lead to dehydration.
      Far more serious is hypovolemic shock, a life-threatening complication of dehydration. It occurs when low blood volume causes a sudden drop in blood pressure and a reduction in the amount of oxygen reaching your tissues. If untreated, severe hypovolemic shock can cause death within a few minutes or hours.
    • Blood loss. Losing a lot of blood from a major injury or internal bleeding reduces the amount of blood in your body, leading to a severe drop in blood pressure.
    • Severe infection (septicemia). Septicemia can happen when an infection in the body enters the bloodstream. This condition can lead to a life-threatening drop in blood pressure called septic shock.
    • Severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Anaphylaxis is a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Common triggers of anaphylaxis include foods, certain medications, insect venoms and latex. Anaphylaxis can cause breathing problems, hives, itching, a swollen throat and a drop in blood pressure.
    • Lack of nutrients in your diet. A lack of the vitamins B-12 and folate can cause a condition in which your body doesn't produce enough red blood cells (anemia), causing low blood pressure.
