Doctor: Thanks for consulting us. The difference between Systolic and Diastolic pressures is called Pulse pressure. Normally it should be around 40. If the difference in more, as seen in your case, it indicates high output state. Some of the causes are AV fistula, Aortic dissection, Aortic regurgitation, Thyrotoxicosis, raised Intracranial pressure, etc. Consult your Cardiologist for further work up and treatment.
