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

Why is there no increase in diastolic pressure after exercising?

Why is there no increase in diastolic pressure after exercising?

Physiology: Diastolic pressure reflects the properties of the arterial tree in between heart beats. Exercise causes blood vessels to dilate, reducing resistance to forward flow (decreased impedance or afterload). Diastolic pressure remains the same or even falls following vigorous exercise. Systolic pressure initially rises but it falls to below baseline levels during cooldown. This is normal exercise physio. ...Read more

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

I took a pre-workout drink once, and ever since my diastolic pressure is >90. What can I do to lower it?

I took a pre-workout drink once, and ever since my diastolic pressure is >90. What can I do to lower it?

Doubtful: I doubt that the two occurrences are related. Are you measuring your BP at complete rest (for 15 minutes)? Is the cuff large enough for your biceps ? Many brands of birth control pills cause htn. I suspect one of the above 3 issues is contributing - not the drink. ...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
