Hello there. I can understand your consult. Is she having any symptoms associated with this low blood pressure? In aged people and in skinny people the blood pressure is a bit on the lower side nornally so in them you fo not need to worry. Other wise, she should have lots of water and with a pinch of salt everytime. Consult a general physician in oerson for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
