low diastolic bp

  1. low diastolic bp


    My bp is usually 120/40-45. Is this indicative of any other health issues. Im 26 yr old very active healthy male though I believe I suffer from low thyroid and am in the process of inveatigating this further.

    First and foremost, you should be asking a cardiologist about this. If I were that doctor (I'm NOT a doctor), I might do an ultrasound of your heart in addition to ECG. Do not take chances on your heart by asking strangers in the Internet!

    Now, since you asked, was this taken soon after exercise, or had you been resting a while?

    This can be associated with HYPERthyroidism...the opposite of what you think you have.

    This could also be due to a stiffening of the aorta... atherosclerosis maybe? Are you getting plenty of Omega 3 oils?

    All that aside, you really should go to a doctor (e.g. a cardiologist) and ask him/her. The difference between systolic and diastolic is "pulse pressure", which usually should be around 40. Yours is double that. That is a marker of heart disease.

    Please, please, get to a cardiologist ASAP. Then come back and tell us what the physician told you.

    i tihnk that is a typo LOL 80-85 seems more realistic..
    if these numbers are true get to a hearet specialist. If the dr had any common sense when these numbers were taken he would have refered you to one ASAP
