Default Re: Rapid heartrate

hi abbigaill.
his bp is only a tad bit high,normal bp is about 120-130/70-80.
normal heartrate is about 70-90 beats a minute.
it does not sound too bad but you should keep a regular check on it,you can buy very cheaply a home bp machine.
i have one as i have hypotention my bp can drop very low to 60,s/40,s and i have blackouts.
my heartrate is usually very slow in the 50,s but when my bp drops it causes the heart to speed up resulting in arrythmias and i can find it hard getting my breath.
as i said especially with his diebetes get a bp machine and keep a check,i think with this condition a drop in blood suger can cause sudden hypertention.
my son has hyoglycemia,if his blood suger drops he gets very shakey and weak so has to eat something very sugery.
