What is an acceptable low diastolic pressure level?

What is an acceptable low diastolic pressure level?

60 mmHg: The normal diastolic pressure for adults is 80mmhg. Can be considered acceptable from 70 to 85 mmhg. Higher than that is prehypertension. Lowr than 70 mmhg is common normal finding in patients older than 70 years old. Diastolic blood pressure lower than 60 mmhg in adults younger than 65yo raises the ssupicion of valvular problems. ...Read more

Diastolic Pressure (Definition)

Diastolic pressure is essentially the pressure in the blood vessels in between beats when the heart is filling for the next beat, or the "resting pressure". On a blood pressure meter it is the bottom number, with normal for most patients ...Read more

Not much: A lower diastolic number means nothing unless it's less than what's expected to be normal for a particular patient, based in overall health and age. ...Read more

How can I treat low diastolic pressure?

Placebo 10mg: Low diastolic pressure is, generally speaking, good. It means your vessels have high compliance. At 25, you're probably in good shape. If you're worried, see your doc. ...Read more

When is diastolic pressure normally low?

When is diastolic pressure normally low?

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 more

What is considered too low for diastolic pressure?

What is considered too low for diastolic pressure?

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 more

How low does a person's diastolic pressure have to be to be considered too low?

Probably not: A low diastolic blood pressure with a normal diastolic blood pressure often is of no significance. In some people, their blood pressure sounds can be heard all the way down to 0 when nothing is wrong. A large difference between systolic and diastolic pressures (wide pulse pressure) may indicate aortic regurgitation, however. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

What is the reason for low diastolic pressure and how can it be treated?

What is the reason for low diastolic pressure and how can it be treated?

Diastolic pressure: Low diastolic pressure relates to the peripheral vascular resistance, the intravascular volume and the integrity of the aortic valve. Any variable that changes one of these factors can relate to low diastolic pressure. ...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

Why could diastolic pressure be high?

Several reasons: Most high blood pressure is idiopathic (no reason, you just have it) whether it is systolic or diastolic. It runs in families so if your parents have it, you are more likely to get it. There are occasion cases secondary to specific causes such as adrenal tumors, kidney problems, or narrowing of the aorta (called coarctation) and that is called secondary hypertension. ...Read more

What controls the diastolic pressure?

Vascular tone: Both systolic and diastolic pressures are significantly impacted by the level of vascular tone or "resistance" or restriction to a given rate of blood flow. Although we have excellent medication options for managing vascular resistance, I have found that good cardiovascular conditioning seems to positively impact the diastolic blood pressure by enhancing "run off" in the peripheral vascular bed. ...Read more

How can I raise my diastolic pressure?

Why would you?: A low diastolic blood pressure could be due to leaking of the aortic valve or other problems so finding the cause is important. If you feel well, a low pressure, diastolic or systolic, may not be a bad thing. People with relatively low blood pressure live longer. And, how low are you talking about? ...Read more

What does diastolic pressure relate to?

Artery Stiffness: The diastolic blood pressure or the "bottom number" when the blood pressure is taken is when the pressure at which the heart beat is no longer heard by the stethescope. It is related to the stiffness of the arterial tree in the body. The stiffer the artery the higher the diastolic pressure. ...Read more

When can diastolic pressure be measured?

Whenever you want: Diastolic blood pressure refers to the pressure in the arteries during the period of heart's relaxation, i.e. Once it finished ejecting blood during contraction. For every single heart beat, there is the period of contraction ("systolic blood pressure") and the relaxation ("diastolic"). In any single cardiac cycle, each of these arterial pressures can be measured. ...Read more

What is a diastolic pressure time index?

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 more

How can I improve my diastolic pressure?

If overweight: Lose weight. If smoking, stop. Avoid salt in your diet. Beyond those things, there's little you can do - medications can always control it. You should be checked, at least once, for other causes like kidney disease. ...Read more

What are systolic and diastolic pressure?

What are systolic and diastolic pressure?

Pressure in arteries: The pressure in the arteries when the heart contracts is the systolic blood pressure and when it relaxes the pressure is the diastolic pressure. It could be measured directly by putting a needle into an artery or indirectly with a blood pressure cuff. ...Read more
