    Arterial pressure in hypotension often does not exceed 100/60 mm Hg, which adversely affects the overall well-being of patients. All the usual measures, as in the treatment of hypertension, under reduced pressure patients are not suitable, including drug treatment.

    A special point in the treatment of the disease is such a factor as nutrition in hypotension.

    How should I eat under reduced pressure?

    To begin with, patients with low blood pressure should adjust the diet, which should consist of 4-5 meals in small portions throughout the day. The diet for hypertension is fundamentally different from the diet under increased pressure. In the diet of patients with low blood pressure there are foods that are strictly prohibited when feeding hypertensive patients.

    So, here are the main products that increase the pressure in hypotension, which must necessarily be in the diet of hypotension:

    • Dishes with high salt content. Such a requirement for a diet is due to the fact that sodium( which has the ability to bind water in the body) is contained in a large amount in the composition of table salt( or sea) food salt. Binding of water leads to an increase in the volume of circulating blood, which automatically increases blood pressure.

    • Dishes flavored with spices or spices( bay leaf, sweet pepper, cinnamon, cumin, basil).You can eat dishes with sauce of mustard, horseradish, raw onions, cloves. All spices can increase the activity of the endocrine glands, narrow the blood vessels, thereby increasing the pressure. The same applies to smoked dishes that can increase pressure.
    • Fatty foods( fatty meats, fish, poultry, offal, butter, fat cream, cheese).Fat has the ability to increase blood pressure, as the circulation in the bloodstream of cholesterol somewhat hampers blood flow, causing an increase in blood pressure.
