Diastolic (lower) pressure arises in the resistance of the vascular walls in the moment of greatest relaxation of the heart muscle. This is the minimum pressure of the blood in the arteries.

The increase in diastolic blood pressure may have various causes. It could rise after suffering stress or nervous exhaustion due to overwork of the whole organism or cardioneurosis.

But do not rule out the fact that the increase in diastolic pressure indicates some serious deficiencies in the body caused by various diseases.

If in your body there is a liquid retention, the vascular wall is swollen, its lumen narrows and, as a result, the bottom pressure increases. In this case, you must seek to withdraw excess fluid from the body, take diuretics on prescription, insufficient salting food, etc.

Kidney problems that cause fluid retention in the body, can also become the cause of high diastolic blood pressure. It is therefore necessary to treat chronic diseases that affect the blood pressure.

Malfunctions of the Central nervous system can lead to an increase in diastolic blood pressure. Due to multiple stresses can produce excess adrenaline, so the doctor sometimes attributed to medications belonging to the group of adrenergic-blockers: such as "Metropolol", "Verapamil", "Atenolol", etc., They decrease diastolic pressure, relieve often are accompanying symptoms like tachycardia and arrhythmia.

Heart disease, such as ischemia, angina, heart attack, various inflammatory processes in the heart muscle can also lead to an increase in diastolic blood pressure. In such cases, a comprehensive treatment under medical supervision.

If you are overweight, you don't watch your diet, smoke or consume a lot of alcohol, your heart probably just do not cope with such a load and, as a result, you have a higher bottom pressure.

If the problem bothers you a long time and constantly, moreover, accompanied by pain in heart, reconsider your lifestyle, go through the necessary medical research, strengthen their health by refraining from Smoking, alcohol and other harmful habits.
