Is diastolic pressure up to 95 and systolic up to 13 normal? No previous history.

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 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?

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

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

Diastolic pressure under 60 bad?

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
