Does stevia leaf cause high blood pressure

Hello, April -

The only information I have found regarding stevia and hypertension (high blood pressure) talks about using stevia as a sweetner while taking medication to lower blood pressure.

From: MedlinePlus, a database of medical and health information from the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
Some research shows that stevia might decrease blood pressure. In theory, taking stevia along with medications used for lowering high blood pressure might cause your blood pressure to go too low. However, some research shows that stevia does not affect blood pressure. Therefore, it's not known if this potential interaction is a big concern.

How low is to low with my blood pressure?

Mayo clinic says: Most doctors consider chronically low blood pressure too low only if it causes noticeable symptoms. (Such as dizziness, especially when first standing up). Some experts define low blood pressure as readings lower than 90 mm Hg systolic or 60 mm Hg diastolic - you need to have only one number in the low range for your blood pressure to be considered lower than normal. I hope this helps!

What to eat to raise blood pressure

nothing to eat unless you want to clog up the heart but dehydration or lack of regular water intake affects blood pressure
talk with a doctor as you need to fully understand "blood pressure" and what it means in the body
Low blood pressure readings are normal and it is the high pressure readings that are dangerous
Again talk with a doctor to be correctly informed and what your particular blood pressure readings should be

I'm a male of 66 years my blood pressure is 120/55 is that too low

It is foolish for a non-medical person who has not seen you to advise you. Best to see a doctor, but can also check this link: or Google "low diastolic pressure" for more info.

What is a low diastolic reading considered to be for an 88 year old person?

First age is not a factor.
60 mm Hg or less is generally considered low blood pressure
This is usually caused by congestive heart failure, and as far as increasing the pressure it would be a question for your Cardiologist.

Blood pressure measurements support

There are two positions for taking your blood pressure measurements: Sitting down - Place your elbow on a table. Using a flat object as support, position your wrist at heart level. Your blood pressure measurement will be too low if you hold your hand too high, or too high if you hold your hand too low. Lying down - Lie on your back. Rest your wrist on a support or cushion with the palm side facing up, position your wrist at heart level. On both of the positions you need to open and relax your hand with the palm facing up (closing your hand will cause inaccurate readings). Do not bend your wrist inward, as bending your wrist will cause inaccurate readings. If possible, empty your bladder before measuring your blood pressure, for a more accurate reading.
