Core Tip Reduction of diastolic blood pressure to less than 60-80 mmHg appears to lead to adverse cardiovascular events in high risk patient populations. Currently, only two major society guidelines on hypertension include a minimum threshold for diastolic blood pressure. Available studies demonstrating adverse events at lower diastolic blood pressure vary in their cutoff values and patient populations. Randomized controlled trials comparing outcomes across different diastolic blood pressure targets are limited. Hypertension guideline goals should be based on an individual’s age, level of risk, and certain co-morbid conditions, especially coronary artery disease, stroke, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes.
