Food To Bring Down Diastolic Number
What can cause a diastolic number to drop from an average of 85 down to 61 without a change in the average systolic number?
Diastolic bp: The first thing would be blood pressure medications which at times can have a selective effect on diastolic BP over systolic. There are other condition which widen the gap btwn the two number like aortic valve regurgitation, an av fistula which is an abnormal connection btwn an artery and vein. ...Read more
My husband has high diastolic blood pressure why are tomatoes and sweet peppers bad for him? What food helps reduce it?
Diastolic BP: Diastolic hypertension is serious. Be sure that a doctor is managing it and follow up is frequent. Tomato and sweet peppers are not bad for hypertension of either category.

Best diet for HIBP is low salt, low saturated fat, high polyunsaturated fats, with balance toward mostly plant sources of food. ...Read more
Lifestyle/meds: High diastolic (bottom) number is more typical of hypertension in young people. It causes the heart to work harder than it has to. Regular exercise, weight loss, meditation/mindfulness can lower it, along with dash diet. However, lifestyle changes take time. Every single beat of your heart at diastolic 90 is a strain. Consider starting med then taking it away as lifestyle improves. ...Read more

Less than 80 mmHg: Ideal is less than 80 mmhg and perhaps higher than 50 mmhg, would watch between 80 and 90 mmhg, keep to a low salt diet and try to exercise at least three times a week to ward off higher numbers; if higher than 90 mmhg, would seek medical attention. ...Read more
Should I be concerned if my diastolic number for my BP stays in the high 80's to mid 90's? In the past my number was much lower.
My bp is usually 110/90 or 120/90. the diastolic number is always around 90 or 85, I'm 18 year old female. Is it prehypertion?
At any age 90 is too: High, associated with serious long-term effects. At your age the risk is higher. Intervention needed to keep diastolic below 80. Hypertension evaluation indicated. Was the cuff too narrow? Do you have a stricture of a renal artery (which should be checked with ultrasound)? Family history? Have you become overweight? now is the time for answers. You need a PCP for continuity of care. ...Read more
My diastolic sometimes goes down to 63.Is it dangerous? My avg. Bp 126/72, map- 90, bpm-64, and body wt.-61kgs, I am 68 yrs. Old. Suffer drop beats.
Blood pressure: No, the numbers you report seem pretty good, and an occasional diastolic reading in the 60's is not something to be concerned about if you otherwise feel ok. I will take it that you do not have any valvular disease, as aortic regurgitation can sometimes cause particularly low diastolic numbers. ...Read more

The high diastolic blood pressure can cause blood vessel damage in the brain, kidney, and heart muscle and needs to be lowered to less tha 90 to decrease the risk of such damage. ...Read more

In taking a blood pressure manually, what is the diastolic BP? Is it the last sound or the number where it started to have no sound?
What'sTheDifference?: I don't understand the question. If you were trained to take blood pressure readings, you know that the diastolic pressure is the first reading [number] after the systolic pressure when the last heart sound disappears. Above the diastolic pressure, you can hear part of a heart beat (however faint); below the diastolic, you can't hear. Https://www. Practicalclinicalskills. Com/korotkoff-sounds ...Read more
What does high diastolic bp with normal systolic indicate? BP is normal when lying down or at my Dr. And it's only high on my digital BP monitor.
Inability to relax: It usually indicates the heart or blood vessels are not relaxing fully when the heart is in what is known as diastole or its resting phase (where the heart is filling with blood prior to pumping). Might want to bring your digital device in to your next doctor visit so they can compare their reading with your digital monitor reading. ...Read more
I'm 20, 210lbs and my Diastolic number is almost always 90. I had renal exam was fine, doc wants me on BP meds but im only 20 im active male also help?
What's worse?: Decide what's worse, taking a simple med once or twice a day or letting it go untreated. High BP can eventually cause injury to your kidneys, heart and lead to poor function for both. It could also predispose you to a stroke. Sometimes just changing your lifestyle can work. Some weight loss, exercise and dietary changes may fix the problem. If not, this is easily controlled by meds. ...Read more

BP and excercise: It is normal for your blood pressure to increase during and right after exercising. If that is the reading about 20 minutes after resting, you should be concerned.

Why do I hear my diastolic pressure all the way down too 0 when my syostolic pressure is normal? Does that mean my blood pressure is 120/0?
No: In young healthy people with strong hearts, especially if they are thin, it is not uncommon to be able to hear the blood flow sounds (korotkoff sounds) all the way down to 0. In those cases, the diastolic blood pressure is determined when the korotkoff sound intensity decreases slightly (becomes muffled). ...Read more
