This is probably being caused by my leaky heart valves. Eventually, I may need to have one or both replaced. So far I do not have any other symptoms such as fatigue or shortness of breath.

I was not posting here to get medical information. I was just curious if anyone else had a similar problem.

It has a name it's Isolated Diastolic Hypotension. And no, Sunny, you don't wish you had it. LOL When they are both high they can be lowered with meds, exercise, low sodium diet and weight loss. I see my cardiologist twice a year and I will call it to his attention next time.

Advice regarding your problem should be run by the DR. who is already treating you. He should be able to tell you what is going on with your blood pressure.

Wish I had such a problem....well maybe not.....when my systolic is high, so is my dyastolic.
I had horrible dizziness all day yesterday because of it. Nuts.

MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)

"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."

I understand. My blood pressure was a lot lower when I weighed less, but I'm more concerned that my systolic is high and diastolic is low. They are not both high. You cannot lower one without also lowering the other.

My B/P when I started a few years ago was around 150/90 and I was taking bp meds twice a day. after loosing 50lb. I was down to 140/85 and to meds once a day. I so far have lost 80+ pounds and got my bp taken this last Tuesday and it was 102/66 with a pulse of 58. So for me the main thing helping seems to be the loosing of the excess weight. Best of Luck!

Does anyone have this issue? I just read up on it online and it is a bad sign, leading to heart failure. I have 2 leaky valves which the doctor is watching closely. Recently my Systolic has been high compared to my Diastolic. Before I take my meds, my Systolic will be 160 but Diastolic is in the high 50s or low 60s. And my pulse rate is low, too. I am on Beta Blockers, so that explains why it would be a little on the low side, but the big difference in my other readings concerns me. One site said it can be caused by dehydration so I just drank a big glass of water! LOL Don't know if that will help.
