Customer Question

I am a 55 year old woman. My blood pressure is 90/60 and my resting heart rate between 48 -50. I eat very well (plant based/vegan diet) but am NOT an athlete. I walk 2 miles everyday, not much other exercise. Even with my good diet I'm 30 lbs over weight. Should I be concerned about my low BP and heart rate. They have been low for as long as I can remember.

This can be normal in many people. As you are not an athlete so best simple test to make sure it is nothing serious is to get an ECG. Let me know if you have questions.
