In brief: It depends!
A healthy, young athletic heart will do just fine in the 50's.
An old/diseased heart may need diastolics above 70-80 to maintain blood flow through the coronary arteries.

In brief: DBP
Dbp measure the pressure in your blood vessels between heartbeats, when your heart is resting.
Recents studies showed that dpb less than 60mmhg with sbp more than 100mmhg (isolated diastolic hypotension) increase the risk of heart failure in older adults. Published in hypertension a journal of the aha around 2010 or 2011. Stiff arteries and severe hypotension(many causes) can cause low dbp.
