Low Blood Pressure

Low blood pressure is fine if it is tolerated by being able
to function normally. Insurance actuarial tables show
that the lower the tolerated blood pressure the longer
one can live (among healthy people). If a dialysis patient's blood pressure
does go up with extra fluid it could still be that he is
keeping his weight below dry weight.
