These symptoms include red spots in front of the eyes, dizziness and flushing of the skin. Women 21-25 years old have the lowest normal diastolic value (115.5-70.5), while women 31-35 years old have the lowest normal systolic value (110.5/72.5) . The age group where normal blood pressure is greatest in women is between 56 and 60 (132.5/78.5).

Male : 119/70 mm Hg

Women : 110/68 mm Hg

Male : 124/77 mm Hg

Women : 122/74 mm Hg

Male : 133/69 mm Hg

Diastolic blood pressure range.

The heart rests between beats, so it can be replenished with blood. This interruption between each beat to allow the blood to fill is called “diastole”. An average resting diastolic blood pressure is 80 mm Hg or slightly less. In case of arterial hypertension, the diastolic pressure is generally higher, even in a situation of rest. A low diastolic pressure is detectable in case of dehydration or heavy bleeding.
