Exercise; less salt. Reducing salt intake will help to decrease blood pressure. Exercise helps keep the heart healthy and the vascular system elastic enough to provide a good blood pressure.
Use systolic. For ambulatory or home monitoring, use systolic measurements (the top number) -- the diastolic measurements are less accurate.
Blood pressure. Exercise, weight loss, and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
Treat it. It's bad.
My husband has high diastolic blood pressure why are tomatoes and sweet peppers bad for him? What food helps reduce it?
Get the facts. Elevated diastolic blood pressure is serious -- too serious for you folks to focus on internet disisnformation / entertainment sites offering made-up stuff about diet. Salt restriction is likely to be important, but the key will be medical management to prevent brain damage, kidney damage, vascular disease and early death.
Diastolic BP. Diastolic hypertension is serious. Be sure that a doctor is managing it and follow up is frequent. Tomato and sweet peppers are not bad for hypertension of either category. Both contain antioxidants, which are good, and potassium, which can be good if kidneys are healthy. Best diet for HIBP is low salt, low saturated fat, high polyunsaturated fats, with balance toward mostly plant sources of food.
Multiple. There could be multiple causes including smoking, diabetes, lack of excercise/obesity, high salt diet. Family history also plays a significant role. Diastolic hypertension is more common in younger persons and should be treated. There are also multiple secondary causes that also need to be excluded. See your doctor asap.
Has high diastolic blood pressure. Doctor prescribed coaprovel 300/25 mg half tablet a day. What is considered good blood pressure in this case?
<135/<85. Normal BP is <135/<85. For everybody.
Many causes. Kidney disease, coarctation of the aorta, renal artery hyperplasia, adrenal hyperplasia to name a few. Get a work up!
Yes. High diastolic blood pressure keeps the resting pressure in the blood vessels high. This results in more fluid "seeping" out into the surrounding soft tissue -- and usually this is dependent. Feet are dependent -- and so they swell. It can also be due to too much fluid in the system or the heart not being able to push enough blood around.
