Transplant (Definition)

In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more

Is having a consistently lower than normal diastolic blood pressure a good or bad thing (i.e between 40-50 mmhg) if the systolic pressure is the normal range (i.e in the 90s mmhg)?

Is having a consistently lower than normal diastolic blood pressure a good or bad thing (i.e between 40-50 mmhg) if the systolic pressure is the normal range (i.e in the 90s mmhg)?

Prob normal for you: There are some red flags associated with a low diastolic blood pressure in older people (may mean arteries are stiffer, or taking too much of an anti--hypertensive drug(s), but in a young male such as yourself, it is likely normal. Especially since your systolic blood pressure, while normal, is on the low side, too. Unless you have symptoms such as dizziness/light-headedness, I would not worry:) ...Read more

Can Propranolol 20 plus Citalopram 20 lower diastolic blood pressure to 66? My BP is usually 66 and 11. Is it good? Is it because of MVP I have?

Can Propranolol 20 plus Citalopram 20 lower diastolic blood pressure to 66? My BP is usually 66 and 11. Is it good? Is it because of MVP I have?

Normal limits: Propranolol itself can lower blood pressure significantly. A diastolic pressure of 66 is still acceptable and would cause no problems. Mitral valve prolapse may cause disturbances in the heart rhythm but not the blood pressure as a rule. ...Read more

What percentage of woman have a diastolic blood pressure less than 60 mm hg? Is it normal and expected?

What percentage of woman have a diastolic blood pressure less than 60 mm hg?  Is it normal and expected?

Good health: A low diastolic is not bad, in and of itself. Mine is <50. What could be a problem is if it is usually >70 or 80, and then suddenly drops to 60, you don't have enough pressure during the resting phase of your heart beat to keep blood pressure or flow to the brain. There is not really a difference between men and women, per se, so i cannot reliably answer that question for women. ...Read more

Kidney Transplant (Definition)

Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more

Blood Pressure (Definition)

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
