Thank you for the question.
Optimal healthy adults have a blood pressure of not less than 90/60 mmHg and no more than 120/80 mmHg. However, this blood pressure measurement can vary in results, depending on many factors, including the time of the examination, the activities you carry out, the accuracy of the measurement tool, the competency of the examiner, the psychological condition, the food and drinks consumed, and so on.
Referring to your statement, there was a slight decrease in your diastolic blood pressure, because normally not less than 60 mmHg. However, judging from the insignificant decrease, and even your systolic blood pressure is still normal, this condition is most likely harmless. Hormone factors and your lack of activity during sleep can trigger this.
As long as no complaints arise, such as weakness, palpitations, excessive sweating, dark eyes, dizziness, loss of balance, fatigue, pale, etc., you should not panic. For more accurate results, we recommend that you do a repeat blood pressure check at different times and conditions (for example after the activity).
At home, so that blood pressure is more optimal, it is recommended to exercise more (at least 30 minutes every day), live a healthy diet and vary in nutritional value, do not stay up too much or excessive stress, drink lots of water especially water, do not be fond of sadness or angry, do not take any drugs or herbs, and finally, make a regular sleep and wake schedule every day.
However, if you are still unsure of the results of your blood pressure check, or if you feel complaints such as we have mentioned above, you can check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be re-evaluated with the correct examination procedures. .
I hope this helps.
