What is orthostatic hypotension?

KDAH

Orthostatic hypotension is a sudden drop in blood pressure when you stand from a seated or prone (lying down) position. You may feel dizzy or even faint. Low levels of red blood cells in anaemic people can cause them to have low blood pressure, which contributes to bringing on orthostatic hypotension. If you have been experiencing this, it is best to get your iron levels checked.
