After Eating

My heart races after I eat, especially carbs. Does anyone know what could cause this? Thank you.

Re: After Eating

I had so many problems before I got on beta blockers for my heart rate, and this was one of them. I'm glad I don't deal with that anymore. I'm guessing it is a blood sugar spike, as we know, carbs process to sugar. High sodium can cause it too. I'd suggest a low sodium, low carb diet, but I know that's easier said, than done. lol A very low beta blocker would alleviate the problem too.

Re: After Eating

I think it has something to do with digestion, since the Vagus nerve runs from the stomach all the way up, so your heart may be affected.
