Heart rate 40-50 BPM results from stress test, echocardiogram, ekg, 24hr holter monitor all "normal" could my slow heart b due to genetics/other factors?

The "Brady Bunch" I make the odd reference above simply to highlight that a heart rate slower than 60 docs refer to as "bradycardia". As long as you don't have any symptoms, we usually aren't terribly aggressive treating it...Especially in a young person. For example, most endurance runners or young athletes have a resting heart rate below 60...Higher stroke volume = less beats per minute. That's a good "brady".

Possible. Genetics can influence your heart's responsiveness to the balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone as well as endocrine conditions such as hypothyroidism which can aggravate bradycardia. Their are also hereditary connections between such things as maternal lupus and congenital complete heart block. Additional monitoring and assessing chronotropic responsiveness might be in order.
