Low Blood Pressure Complications
If low blood pressure causes lack of blood flow to the organs of the body, then those organs will start to fail. This may result in stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, and bowel ischemia (decreased blood supply to the small and large intestine).
Shock and death are the end result of prolonged low blood pressure.
