The values you: ...provide are well within normal. They do not indicate diastolic dysfunction. If your Echo is normal, than apparently there are no other obvious abnormalities in your heart's anatomy or function. While the gold standard in evaluating DD is cardiac catheterization, unless you have specific signs of cardiac dysfunction (including coronary artery disease) risks may outweigh benefits .
