Why do we get Dizzy When we Stand up Quickly?
It’s happened to all of us at one point. We’ll be sitting down or laying down and decide to get up, and then, suddenly, we feel light-headed, dizzy, or get a headache.
Medically, this is known as Orthostatic Hypotension, but that’s a mouthful so let’s break it down in layman’s terms…
When we get dizzy after quickly standing up it’s very likely due to a temporary dip in blood pressure, as gravity pushes our blood down to our legs and feet before the body has a chance to balance blood pressure levels.
And there’s one major culprit that could be leading to more dizzy spells and potentially even larger complications.
Here’s Dr Juan, our founder and a renowned cardiologist, talking about how to avoid the dizzy spells, and what serious dizzy spells might mean for your health:
Thanks Dr. Juan! Let’s make sure to stay hydrated so we can be steady on our feet.
And let’s get healthier, together.
