Palps and potatoes??

I have tried this before. Cut out potatoes and no palps. This week I had 2 large potatoes and had palps for 3 days.
Is this coincidence?

Re: Palps and potatoes??

The Carbs in Potatoes convert to blood sugar very quickly. This "rush" of blood sugar could cause all kinds of unexpected health problems and heart problems. The same goes for white rice and white pasta; and any other foods with high Glycemic Indexes or Loads.

In my case, I have Heart Disease, Atrial Fibrillation and Insulin Resistance, among other things, so I have to severely restrict the carbs in my diet.

I thought as much. Will cut out the white stuff.
Thank you. I also get Atrial Fib. every 3 months or so.

You are lucky to get AFib infrequently!

I have persistent, or permanent, AFib. I have it ALL the time. Every minute of every day. Fortunately it is kept under control, but it is still a bummer.

Good luck with cutting out the white stuff. It's not easy to give up old eating habits. I would give up my ex-bosses left arm (or even more) to be able to eat a baked potato, smothered in butter and then sour cream on the skin!

Re: Palps and potatoes??

A friend of mine had perminant A Fib. HB was 180. He had a small op where they cauterized the rogue pulse that occurred in between the normal pulse.
He now has a pulse of 90.

Re: Palps and potatoes??

My HB is controlled very nicely with Digoxin, but the Atrial Fibrillation NEVER stops. But..... as long as I don't notice the AFib, I don't care!

Re: Palps and potatoes??

Sico have you had your glucose checked?

I have heart issues but in my case it was low potassium that was making it bad. I have low blood sugar normally and when I began a heart med it shot up to coma level. always good to get a metabolic glucose screen just in case.
