***keep_mailing*** Health Advice: Low Blood Pressure in Ramadan

During fasting, it is not uncommon for some people to experience a drop in their blood pressure. The symptoms usually include excessive sweating, lethargy, dizziness (usually when standing up from a sitting position) and feeling faint. This might occur in the afternoons, especially with Ramadan falling in the middle of the summer this year.

Low blood pressure could be caused by dehydration and reduced salt intake. Thus it is advised to increase your salt and fluid intake. If the above symptoms persist, please contact your doctor immediately.
