Is Diastolic Bp Of 62 Too Low
Depends: "too low" implies that it is a problem. 70 is lower than average but would not raise an eyebrow. 50-60 is unusual and would lead me to think, why? If you feel well it is probably not a problem. But if the diastolic pressure is on the low side, i would consider things that might cause that even if the patient is well. Leaking of the aortic valve for instance can cause a low diastolic pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See your GP : Although this BP reading is higher than optimal a couple of points need to be considered. Firstly we never treat BP on a one off reading, it needs to be high over time. Secondly in NZ BP treatment is based on your overall risk of cardiovascular disease. Your GP can calculate this for you. Treatment starts with weight loss and exercise and dietary advice before moving to meds. Discuss with your GP ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Probably: I would like to see your blood pressure below 120 systolic at your age. If this measurement is the same on more than 2 occasions, you should consider measuring your own BP at home periodically since you are at risk of developing high blood pressure as you get older.

SYSTOLIC HYPERTENSIO: First and foremost, lifestyle changes should be instituted which include salt restriction, physical exercise, weight reduction, and limiting alcohol consumption. Regarding medication, ace inhibitors or arb's (angiotensin receptor blockers) are often prescribed for systolic hypertension with a goal of keeping the diastolic pressure above 70. Losartan which you take is an arb. ...Read more

Varies: It varies person to person. Some may tolerate BP in 80's, some don't. Low BP which causes symptoms is usually dangerous for that patient. Usually we get worried when we see BP in 80's. ...Read more
I have isolated systolic hypertension of 150/70. All meds i've tried push the diastolic too low (<60). Which med lowers systolic but not diastolic?
None: Don't concern yourself with the diastolic number. It will come down with the systolic pressure. Some people have a diastolic pressure of zero and are fine. (the diastolic isn't really 0 - it's that our indirect method of measurement (using a cuff) isn't able to accurately measure true central diastolic pressure). ...Read more
