Should people with low blood pressure work outdoors? What should be done to keep the health and blood pressure stable?
Dear doctor. I have low blood pressure 70-80, currently I work as a market worker running outdoors, running the market 3 days a week. Is there any danger in my illness if I still stick with my current job? And should people with low blood pressure work outdoors? What should be done to keep the health and blood pressure stable? Thank you doctor.

According to what you said, your case is not uncommon. The doctor's first concern is your symptoms when working in the current environmental conditions. (eg: are you tired, dizzy or faint, ...) In case you have no abnormal symptoms, you can completely continue with your current job.
Advice the doctor wants to give you for good health and more stable blood pressure:
Exercise daily, each exercise session > 30 minutes and maintain at least 5 times a week. Cardio exercises will help you have a good health, especially for young people. Should eat more green vegetables and fresh fruits, limit carbonated and alcoholic beverages. Do not skip meals, especially on days when you have to work outdoors, ensure enough nutrition with the necessary energy for a working day. In order to have a good health, to ensure work, you should arrange a time to visit a hospital of Vinmec Health System to check and check your heart health to receive in-depth advice from a doctor.
