      Very generally, BP of 120/80 or lower is considered normal. BP less than 90/60 is classified as hypotension. Chronic low blood pressure is generally not considered to be a problem in and of itself. However it can be a symptom of an underlying problem such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, arrhythmia, or liver disease. A sudden major drop in BP is usually associated with anaphylaxis, heart failure, sepsis, or severe blood loss.
