Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

If you do not have any symptoms like dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, this is not urgent problem.

Yes lower diastolic pressure signifies likely aortic valve problem.

Aortic valve insufficiency can cause this commonly.

In case of severe problem, surgical repair is indicated.

Mild to moderate problem can be watched for.

Echocardiogram of the heart is recommended.

Please discuss with your doctor tomorrow.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
