What Is The Reason For Low Diastolic Pressure And How Can It Be Treated
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

Leaking of the aortic valve for instance can cause a low diastolic pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
