Hi Octaviana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Normal systolic blood pressure is below 12o mmHg and normal diastolic blood pressure is below 80. For your age, your blood pressure is not high at all. However, you should confirm again whether your diastolic blood pressure is really 30 mmHg?
Diastolic blood pressure that is too low like this will usually cause symptoms of low blood pressure such as dizziness that can lead to fainting, weakness and fatigue, dizzy eyes or dark vision, reduced concentration, cold, wet, and pale hands and feet, palpitations, chest pain, etc. The main cause of low diastolic blood pressure is the use of hypertension drugs, especially drugs from the alpha blocker group. Another cause of low diastolic blood pressure is old age.
If you do experience the symptoms of low blood pressure above, you should immediately consult a doctor directly. The doctor will dig deeper into the other symptoms you are experiencing, as well as perform a physical examination and any necessary support, such as blood tests, heart record examination (EKG), or echocardiography.
For now, some things you can do about your low diastolic blood pressure include:
Improve your diet to be healthier
Reduce consumption of salt
Lose weight if there is excess body weight
Do not smoke and drink alcohol
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
