My average heart rate even at rest is as high as 90 to 100 bpm, what is the best way to reduce it to about 70?

My average heart rate even at rest is as high as 90 to 100 bpm, what is the best way to reduce it to about 70?

Why?: Your heart is regulated by a system of fine neurohumoral mechanisms - why are you trying to defeat them? If your resting hr is 90-100, there's a reason for it. That said, generally the better shape you're in, the slower your resting hr so working out and being keeping body mass index 18-25 will usually do the trick. Fever, anemia, anxiety, stress, exercise, xs thyroid etc. Increases it. ...Read more

High (approx. 80 BPM) resting heart rate. Previously sedentary. My heart pounds hard and fast during T25 DVD workout - is actually feeling it normal?

High (approx. 80 BPM) resting heart rate. Previously sedentary. My heart pounds hard and fast during T25 DVD workout - is actually feeling it normal?

Heart rate and exerc: Heart rate of 80 is still well within the normal range. If you have started an exercise program after being relatively sedentary - its not unusual that you might see an increase in pulse. As your body adjusts to the new exercise program and your cardiovascular health improves the pulse will lower. The pounding is simply your body letting you know its out of shape. Good luck ...Read more

Today at the pharmacy I found out my resting heart rate has been high, lowest heart rate was 108 bpm highest was tonight. 123 bpm Any advice??

Resting? Or walking: A true resting heart rate is measures after 15 minutes of laying down or sitting in a chair without anxious thoughts in your head. Walking up to the pharmacy's machine and pressing a button doesn't count. That being said, if your resting heart rate is truly elevated, try to find the cause. If there is no prior heart history, Rx may not be needed. Propranolol for anxiety & SVT is often used. TTYD. ...Read more

What could cause a high resting heart rate like 100 to 110 while resting?

What could cause a high resting heart rate like 100 to 110 while resting?

A few possibilities: Dehydration &/or meds &/or obesity. If you haven't got one, you need a12-lead ECG to determine what is going on. There is a nerve-based pathway in the heart that looks like an upside-down tree. The pacer is the sinus node. It shoots electricity to the AV node where the left and right bundle branches originate. Then the pathways branch over & over. "Ectopic"/extra sites misbehave & cause this too. ...Read more
