How low?: If you do not have any symptoms and is it is between to 60 mmhg, it is probably normal for you. It is hard to diagnose someone just based on a number, may things can cause a drop in the diastolic bp, infections, dehydration, hormonal problems, heart problems, pregnancy, blood loss, lack of nutrient among many others. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
He can: There are many medications that can reduce the diastolic blood pressure. A combination of several of them might be needed but it should be possible to lower the pressure. Of course, if you are on several medications, you are more likely to get side effects. So the problem is lowering it without intolerable side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pulsatile flow: Blood flows through the arteries in a pulsatile fashion, propelled by rhythmic contractions of the left ventricle. The pulsatile flow means that the pressure is higher in systole (when the heart contracts) and lower in diastole (when the heart relaxes). Systolic pressure is the peak pressure and diastolic pressure is the lowest pressure. ...Read more
You don't: Actually the diastolic blood pressure is the point at which you no longer here a tapping sound as you slowly release the pressure in the blood pressure cuff. So it is actually not hearing the sounds. Sometimes instead of disappearing completely, the sounds just get muffled at the level of the diastolic pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
False measurement: First recheck measurement with a manual cuff because it could be an inaccurate reading. Diastolic BP is a measure of the BP in the vessels when the heart is relaxing between beats. It can be considered a form of pre hypertension if it is elevated say during exercise but eventually returns to normal (. ...Read more
How come my diastolic pressure is usually above 80 and appears less stable than my systolic pressure?
Depends on technique: How one takes the BP such as position of the arm body position etc can affect the reading. In general isystolic pressure however is more labile than the diastolic pressur. ...Read more
Please advise what is the implication when there's a great difference between systolic pressure and diastolic pressure?

Yes: Increases in diastolic pressure (and systolic pressure) occur during periods of severe anxiety, as anxiety is tied to stress hormones that increase pressure within the cariocascular system. Even onset of mild/moderate situational anxiety can increase pressure, such as white coat syndrome (ie, BP goes up due to anxiety of being in a medical clinic). If a concern be sure to talk with your provider. ...Read more
