    I was diagnosed with HBP with a reading of 130 over 96. While the 130 (systolic) is high normal, the 96 (diastolic), is in high blood pressure category. But to answer your question, I don't know what the cause is.

    At the moment I am free from medication.

    I have the same problem. My dia always reads high while the sys is decently normal. As of now Im on medication, "water pills".

    I have read in several articles on the internet. The high diastolic pressure may indicate a problem in the heart. I have not found much info about normal sys/high dia situations though.

    One reason for a high diastolic rate is a poorly exercised some cardiovascular exercise (walking, swimming, running, jumping, etc), and the number may come down.

    I've found that diet and cpap dropped my systolic, but the diastolic didn't budge much...until I got some, sigh, exercise!
