Stage 1 Diastolic Dysfunction
I was recently diagnosed with Stage 1 Diastolic Dysfunction which they tell me was brought on by uncontrolled hypertension.   I thought my hypertension was well controlled with Micardis (40 mg.) but apparently, on mild exertion, my blood pressure can go as high as 160/90.  I go to physical therapy for lower back pain.  This involves some mild cardiovascular exercise (walking in warm chest-high water.)  I am wondering how safe it is for me to continue doing the mild exercise.

Thanks,

Terri

My name is Robert ,
I was able to look at my Echocardiogram by a new internet service that allows patients to see all medical records , there was much I didn't comprehend, but at the end of the report was a list of conclusions,  one paragraph disturbed me , it stated : Grade 1A diastolic dysfunction with severe concentric left ventricular hypertrophy.  From other research on the net, I think what im reading is tellin me my heart is in the first stages of failing and the left side of my heart is enlarged , with these problem, my heart is not keeping up with the other side causeing pulmonary edema,  that explaining my cough and shortness of breath and chest pain ,Im not a Dr. And Im not scheduled for another appointment for awhile so Im hoping someone out there will tell me its nothing serious and my own interpretation of what I have read is incorrect.
