Diastolic pressure refers to the second number which you would find in a typical blood pressure reading. Essentially, it would indicate the amount of pressure which is present in your arteries during the time your heart is actually at rest, just between beats. Lower blood pressure could result from possible adverse effect of some drugs, dehydration, fainting, and body shock. It can happen even when you suddenly try and stand if you were previously lying or sitting down.

Other causes would include anaphylaxis, neuropathy or pregnancy related issues. Typically you will find that your blood pressures would be lowest when either you are asleep or when you are able to relax all your muscles.

Understand that blood pressure will definitely vary among individuals as well as throughout the day.
