Increasing Diastolic Pressure


Recommended Posts

The diastolic pressure is the amount of pressure in your arteries when your heart is at rest between beats. I can't get mine to raise. I tried taking 5 salt pills and drinking 5 liters of water in a short amount of time. It lowered my bpm and raised my systolic but diastolic remained unchanged. I have tried midodrine and it only raised my systolic. I am 10mg propranolol twice a day. Is there anything else I can do or try to raise my diastolic? It stays about 63. The reason I ask is I still feel my brain is not getting the blood it needs even after the increase salt and liquids and even with the midodrine. However on the very rare occasion when my brain feels like it is actually working my diastolic is closer to normal 80. My cardio just said that its the sympathetic not kicking in but didn't give me any help on how to kick it into gear. Thanks.
