When your body tries to maintain the balance of fluid between the bloodstream and the other tissues, low blood pressure occurs. In the process of dialysis, fluid are taken away from the blood through the dialyser, as a result, fluid volume in the bloodstream begins to drop.

Low blood pressure is also prone to occur when you take hypotensive drugs before dialysis.
