Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

A single reading pattern should not be used to determine the BP. Diastolic BP of 100 is high and needs to be controlled if its persistently in the range that you described. 24 hour ambulatory BP monitoring would give compelling evidence in this regard and make it easier for deciding the antihypertensive therapy.


Wishing you best of health

Thanks
