Low Blood Pressure (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
When standing quickly, it may take a second or two for the body to make adjustments to constrict blood vessels and push blood up to the brain. If there is a delay, then this time of relative low blood pressure may cause symptoms. It can be exacerbated or seen more often in patients who are pregnant, have diabetes, are dehydrated, or taking high blood pressure medications.
