Hello,

Both BP and pulse rate are fine. Although diastolic BP is a bit on the lower side, it's fine according to your age.

Brief Answer:
Needs no treatment

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

This needs no treatment as it's an age related change due to vessel hardening; it's fine. This will not cause any adverse consequences or leads to any symptoms.

I guess you are asymptomatic at present. Although, not absolutely urgent, just get yourself auscultated whenever you visit the doctor next time to rule out aortic regurgitation as sometimes this can cause low diastolic BP. Otherwise, no need to worry about it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
