How Does Hyperglycemia And Hypoglycemia Affect Heart Rate And Blood Pressure
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
Could you tell me what are hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia's effects on heart rate and blood pressure?
Increasing: Hypoglymia will trigger a sympathetic response increasing hr and bp. During hyperglycemia, if you are diabetic, the response will be lighter or none, depending in complications associated like hyperoamolar state and ketoacidosis, when the response will be stronger. ...Read more
Hypoglycemia: Low blood sugar may cause palpitations or fast heart rate, and causes a weak, shaky feeling. Blood pressure may go up (due to heart working harder with stress) or down (due to overall weakness effect) or remain normal. If someone feels like sugar is low and unable to test right away, it's safe to eat/drink extra to bring sugar up than to wait and risk passing out, etc. ...Read more
Exercise: Higher intensity yields higher heart rates and bp. ...Read more
I have a fear of my heart rate and blood pressure going high. If my heart rate isn't below 69 and my blood pressure isn't 109/65 I freak out. Normal?
Nature/ Genes: Low blood pressure and low pulse may be normal in people who always have been like that. They are of concern when they change significantly from the baseline BP or pulse. Pulses too low at any point of life (less than 40) are of concern. Athletes develope pulses in the 50s. Medicines may cause bradycardia in the 50s (digoxin, beta or calcium blockers (metoprolol, atenolol, diltiazem, verapamil. ...Read more
60, 120/80: In general, your pulse should be under 100. Over 100 is considered to be a fast heart rate. Ideal is about 60. Blood pressure should be 120/80, but most ladies have lower blood pressure. It could be 90/60 and its still normal. 140/90 should be checked by a doctor. It always good to get readings out side of the dr's office since some people at the doctors have white coat hypertension. ...Read more

I'm a 70 yr old male, 199 lb, 6' What should my heart rate, and blood pressure be? Thanks for your time.
Resting or max?: A resting heart rate is 60-100 bpm depending on your medical condition. Your theoretical maximum heart rate (HEAVY exertion - marathon, for example) is 220-age, or 150 bpm. You shouldn't strive for this number; 60%-80% of this (ie 90-120 bpm) is a good number for exercise. The SBP (upper) should be <120 mmHg & DBP (lower) should be <80 mmHg. SBP of 121-130 or DBP 81-90 is pre-hypertension. TTYD. ...Read more
Is it normal for your heart rate and blood pressure to go up when playing a video game you get excited or scared by? Or is this bad for the body?
Anxiety: It is not unusual for a 'gamer' to react to the excitement of the game by increased heart rate and blood pressure. It would be unusual for these to be excessive and your doctor can judge this for you. If the responses are physiologic then they should not cause long term problems. If they are excessive heart rate and/or blood pressure problems could arise. ...Read more
Related / separate: Blood pressure is a measure of the pressure of blood circulating in the arteries. The heart rate measures how many beats per minute the heart is squeezing. Generally, the heart rate will increase when the blood pressure begins to fall to maintain the same blood flow. A slower heart rate can make the blood pressure fall unless the volume of blood being ejected is large (such as in athletes). ...Read more

Besides being on a beta blocker, is there a way to control random adrenaline surges which raise heart rate and blood pressure?
Look for cause.: Beta blockers are very effective in controlling excess adrenergic activity. If they are not effective, perhaps the underlying cause should be thoroughly investigated. Excess anxiety can sometimes cause this as can tumors of the adrenal medulla. Consult your primary care or an endocrinologist for advice. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
