Brief Answer:
this is normal value

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to hcm.
Why would you reduce it when it is normal diastolic blood pressure. It is important that it is not higher than 100 or lower than 70= so you don't have to be concerned. Also,systolic pressure is more important than diastolic and it should be held below 140. Wish you good health. Regards
