Low diastolic blood pressure

I recently have been noticing a Low diastolic blood pressure, I am 32? I am a 31 year old male. In excellent shape, 170 lbs 5 11 - I have unexplained hypertention. I have been on 40mgs of accupril for most of 9 years. I recently went to a cardiologist for an annual check up and received a echo and stress test, check for LVH and other cardiac issues. All results were normal. My blood pressure usually reads 125/80 w/ medication but recently I have been seeing lower diastolic pressures 125/65. My doctor added a diuretic to my treatment last year and I have stoped weight lifting which my cardiologist suggested might not be good for a hypertensive. Since then I have been running on average 8- 10 miles a week. Like i said my last cardio echo was perfect,.....could all this cardio and running be lowering my diastolic? If not what could it be if my echo s are clean ?

diuretics lower blood pressure. if all tests checked out fine, I wouldn't worry too much, unless of course it continues to decline to dangerous lows. 65 diastolic is not bad..

I am concerned about my health. I am in between Internist right now and don t really think my other doctors can help since it s out of their specialty. They have tried. Female, 42 yo. One year ago I became a left leg aka and since that time I have dropped close to 50 lbs. Now I weigh 93 lbs and I am 5 8. Along with weight loss, my blood pressure is out of control low. Today it was 99/57. Now the systolic # is generous, on avg. that # hovers around 92. It s the diastolic # that concerns me today. My blood pressure numbers have been like this for at least 2 weeks. Opinion?
