How To Lower Diastolic Blood Pressure Quickly
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?
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
Difficult: Difficult as lowering systolic generally lowers diastolic as well. My question is why are you concerned about not lowering your diastolic bp. 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)?
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
Diastolic pressure: The diastolic blood pressure represents the lowest blood pressure that the vessels are subjected to during the circulation of the blood by the pumping action of the heart, and this occurs just before each heartbeat. The systolic blood pressure is the highest pressure in the blood vessels and this occurs immediately after each heart beat. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several things: High diastolic pressure is usually related to volume retention due to kidney disease or high blood count. So usually medication that are vaso-dilators or diuretic or other blood pressure medications. Smoking, diabetes, sleep apnea or snoring and obesity are among the factors that elevate blood pressure therefore controlling these factors can also reduce blood pressure.

Not many: Not many and not that important. Most common reason would be aortic insufficiency (leaky aortic valve). Other than that, there are artifacts (errors) taking the blood pressure in someone with rigid arteries that will make diastolic BP artificially low. True diastolic low BP (not related to leaky valve) requires NO treatment Read more
Can be harmful: Diastolic pressure is the lowest pressure reached inside blood vessels, and occurs as the hear is relaxing between beats. Normal values are below 80. Diastolic BP above 90 (or systolic above 140) will increase the risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. It is definitely worth having BP checked regularly and treated if high. Read more
