In brief: Several things
High diastolic pressure is usually related to volume retention due to kidney disease or high blood count.
So usually medication that are vaso-dilators or diuretic or other blood pressure medications. Smoking, diabetes, sleep apnea or snoring and obesity are among the factors that elevate blood pressure therefore controlling these factors can also reduce blood pressure.
