What Is A Normal Range For Diastolic Pressure
It has a wide range: Best to know what your normal range is upon measurement at the eye doctor, and that your optic nerve is looking healthy. That's a better indicator. So although intraocular pressures of 12 to 22 would be considered normal, there are normotensive and low tension glaucoma which can occur at normal low pressures and still cause eye disease. ...Read more

Common, not normal: Many possible causes. Frequently part of aging effects on arteries, making them less flexible. It commonly happens with anxiety, pain, strenuous exertion. It should not always be like this when tested. There are medications that work well for this type of high blood pressure. If either systolic and diastolic number stay high, there is risk for heart attack and stroke, and both need treatment. ...Read more

DPTI: It is a measure of coronary blood supply. Multiply the coronary perfusion pressure times the diastolic tmie. Cpp =diastollic blood pressure minus the left vetricular end diastolic pressure. Diastolic time is 60sec/heart rate-0.2seconds. The 0.2 is systolic time(fixed at 0.2s). Coronary flow occurs during diastole and relates to the pressure and how long diastole lasts. Now ask me what the evr is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually < 5 or > 0.5: Depends on the normal range for the lab where the test was processed. If it's high or low it should be interpreted in the context of a free T4 and whether or not you have symptoms. People with a TSH that is in the normal range but above 2 may have a higher risk for developing hypothyroidism in the future. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the safest range of a pulse pressure in a blood pressure? Is it really 30-60 difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure?
Many factors. HT Pri: The pulse pressure is just 1 of many numbers on a blood pressure recording that has information for doctors. While the "normal" pulse pressure is about 40 mmHg, with a range you mentioned, a pulse pressure outside of that range may not be significant. In general, a high pulse pressure is worse than a low one, but it also depends on the NUMBER of the systolic (upper)reading. TTYD or HealthTap Prime ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is having a high top number (systolic) blood pressure, but a normal bottom number (diastolic) cause for concern?
Yes: If you have a diastolic number — the bottom number of a blood pressure measurement — less than 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and a systolic number — the top number of a blood pressure measurement — greater than 140 mm Hg, you have a common type of high blood pressure called isolated systolic hypertension. Isolated systolic hypertension can be caused by underlying conditions such as artery stiffness, heart valve problems or an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). For years, doctors focused primarily on diastolic blood pressure. The theory was that the body could tolerate occasional increases in systolic blood pressure, but consistently high diastolic pressure could lead to health problems. However, doctors now know that high systolic pressure is as important as high diastolic pressure — and even more important in people older than age 50. The recommended goal for systolic pressure for younger people is less than 140 mm Hg. For people who are 60 or older, the recommended treatment goal is less than 150 mm Hg. In people with isolated systolic hypertension, treatment may lower diastolic pressure too much, potentially increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke. So if you have isolated systolic hypertension, your doctor may recommend that your diastolic pressure not be reduced to less than 70 mm Hg in trying to reach your target systolic pressure. Isolated systolic hypertension can lead to serious health problems, such as: Stroke, Heart disease, Chronic kidney disease. ...Read more
