What Is A Normal Range For Diastolic Pressure
In the elderly: Hello livk -- diastolic pressure is commonly lower as we get older -- partly due to the increased stiffness of the vessel and low volume reserve. However, please note that diastolic pressure is rarely accurate using the automated home BP machine -. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Changes are common: Usually systolic and diastolic BP will drop minimally while standing unless you are dehydrated. If you are healthy and do not have hbp, there is no use in measuring BP and could be generate plenty of anxiety. If you want to be healthy, i rather you spend your energy in exercising and eating right. ...Read more
A little high: I am assuming you mean systolic of 130, not 13. A systolic of 130 is normal for most people but there are some conditions where we would like it a bit lower. Diastolic blood pressure should definitely be below 90 and 80 would be even better. A single measurement of a high blood pressure is not concerning but if the diastolic stays high you should see MD. Also avoid salt, caffeine and alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it typical when walking around doing normal daily activity your diastolic pressure would go above 100?
Not normal- see pcp: A 24 hour BP reading could help if available. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Nope: Some people who walk around and feel well have diastolic bps of zero. (at least as estimated by a BP cuff which is an indirect measurement). My only caveat: get an echo and be sure you don't have aortic regurgitation which can be severe, cause no symptoms for years, and be hard to detect with a stethoscope. ...Read more
