Diastolic dysfunction is a problem with diastole, the first part of your heartbeat. Typically, your lower heart chambers relax and fill with blood during diastole. Diastolic dysfunction occurs when your lower heart chambers don’t relax as they should. Over time, the dysfunction can lead to diastolic heart failure.


Many people have only mild diastolic dysfunction. You may feel out of breath when you exert yourself. As diastolic dysfunction worsens, shortness of breath may worsen, and you may develop symptoms of diastolic heart failure.


Several conditions and heart problems may lead to diastolic dysfunction, including:

  • Coronary artery disease.
  • Diabetes.
  • High blood pressure (hypertension).
  • History of heart attacks.
  • Sleep apnea.


  • Grade I is slightly impaired diastole. It is a common finding in people over age 60.
  • Grade II is elevated pressure in the left side of your heart.
  • Grade III is significantly elevated pressure in the left side of your heart.
  • Grade IV is advanced heart failure with significantly elevated pressure on the left side of your heart.


You can lower your risk of developing diastolic dysfunction by practicing heart-healthy habits. You may:

  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight for your body type, age and sex.
  • Avoid tobacco and limit your intake of alcohol and caffeine.
