Drinking too much alcohol can raise blood pressure to unhealthy levels: Having more than three drinks in one sitting temporarily increases your blood pressure, but repeated binge drinking can lead to long-term increases. Heavy drinkers who cut back to moderate drinking can lower their systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) by 2 to 4 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and their diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number in a blood pressure reading) by 1 to 2 mm Hg. Heavy drinkers who want to lower blood pressure should slowly reduce how much they drink over one to two weeks. Heavy drinkers who stop suddenly risk developing severe high blood pressure for several days. If you have high blood pressure, avoid alcohol or drink alcohol only in moderation. Moderate drinking is generally considered to be: Two drinks a day for men younger than age 65, One drink a day for men age 65 and older, One drink a day for women of any age. A drink is 12 ounces (355 milliliters) of beer, 5 ounces (148 milliliters) of wine or 1. 5 ounces (44 milliliters) of 80-proof distilled spirits. Keep in mind that alcohol contains calories and may contribute to unwanted weight gain — a risk factor for high blood pressure. Also, alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness and increase the side effects of some blood pressure medications. ...Read more

Hyperaldosteronism: As long as you eat a balanced diet, it will have no effect. If you drink all of your calories in beer and do not eat, your potassium level will fall since the calories in the beer require potassium to be utilized. It doesn't matter what the alcohol is. If you eat properly, the potassium will remain normal. Need to make sure a low potassium in you with hypertension isn't hyperaldosteronism. ...Read more

Whenever i eat carbs or drink alcohol my heart races and skips. What is my problem? I'm 22 and have had EKG and a stress test done. Bp is normal.
Drinking too much??: I don't know the issue with carbs, except that if you have reactive hypoglycemia and are taking in too much simple sugar, you can get periods of low blood sugar which can cause a racing heart. Alcohol is a different story, which is itself toxic to the heart in high doses, and can cause cardiac arrhythmias, especially svt and atrial fibrillation. Talk to your doctor about your drinking. ...Read more

Ekg results. vent rate 60 bpm, pr int 152ms, qrs dur 72ms, qt/qtc 402/402,and p-r-t axes is 72 66 55 is this normal?
What causes false + EKG results at clinic (example: distortion, noise baseline, t wave inv latterly), then hour later at hospital checked normal.?
Yes and no: "bad ekg results" aren't good. The ekg is the body surface representation of the electrical activity of the heart, and not the blood or other things. That said, there are other medical conditions that can affect the ekg. I'd recommend that you ask your cardiologist (or whoever told you that the ekg result is bad) to give you more information about your condition. Additional testing may be needed. ...Read more
Ekg results were sinus bracardyia with short pr syndrome. I am currently on ivf injections and suffer from aniexty. Can aniexty and meds make ekg abnormal?
Short pr: Sinus bradycardia is very common in young adults. Accelerated AV conduction(short pr interval) can make you prone to episodes or supraventricular tachycardia. I don't believe that anxiety or your treatment caused these EKG findings. I would avoid caffeine,alcohol,nicotine and other stimulants all of which can initiate tachycardia by making the heart more irritable. A Cardiologist can advise you. ...Read more
I recently had an Echocariogram, Holter (24 hour) and EKG. Results-Episodes of tach,. bileaflet MVP and trace regurgitaition. Can you explain?
Valve: Your bileaflet mitral valve is normal. It is a bicuspid valve. The mitral valve works like an inverted parachute when blood comes into your heart from the lungs the parachutes collapse and blood comes into the chamber. When your heart beats the parachutes open and do not let blood back into the lungs. Sometimes that do not close completely and that causes regurgitation. Usually some is common. ...Read more
2 things: sinus bradycardia means you have a resting heart rate less than 60, can be normal finding in young, healthy or athletic people, can also be pathologic depending on how low and the clinical scenario. Short PR can mean accelerated AV conduction which is essentially normal, or could me a pre-excitation suggesting presence of a bypass tract (WPW) but usually accompanied with other findings. ...Read more
Ekg results; vent 81bpm, p duration 122, qrs duration 138, pr interval 178, qt/qtc 392/428? How abnormal is this? Only diagnosis I have is lbbb.
Depends: Lbbb is abnormal. It may be associated with coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, an enlarged heart, or cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease). Rarely, it can be congenital (present at birth). The significance of lbbb depends on the presence or absence of associated heart disease and whether it is a new finding or has been present for several years. May need echocardiogram and/or heart cath. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and no: An abnormal ECG may represent an inaccurate read, ie mistake or not overread by a competent cardiologist. An abnormal ECG may also represent a correct read which is a false positive, very common. In other words, an ECG is not the most sensitive or specific test, and the ECG reading could be correct but doesn't necessarily mean that the patient has this particular pathology, and vice versa. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Male,49 yo, smoker,for the past year i've been experiencing this pin prick feeling in left side of chest,EKG results :normal?
I'm 28 yrs old and for years get a fluttering in upper abdomen after eating. Perfect bloodwork and EKG results last month. What could this be?
Unclear: This may be some type of spasm or GI upset. Not any evidence to suggest cardiac disease. This fluttering is not mentioned how frequent but may represent spams of the bowel after eating. Something else that is rare at your age is a type of dumping syndrome One other question is how much caffeine are you taking. Irritable can be evident as fluttering if you are under stress.

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more
