1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
If the irregular heart beat is due to sporadic premature beats and the heart is structurally normal, that kind of irregularity is present in all normal hearts and not considered a heart disease.
On the other hand, if you have atrial fibrillation (for example), that is considered a heart disease.
