Quote from Lady50:Do you think that a resting heartrate of 54 is too low? I am hypo and just wondered.
It's not low if you're very active - when I am running, biking and lifting weights mine is around 58. When I am not it's around 68-72. "Average" for a woman my age is supposed to be 80something. It's gone up a bit since I started the synthroid, but not a lot.
It depends on whether this is too low for you, Betty.
BTW, the optimal time to check your heart rate is the same time you check your basal temperature - it will be lowest first thing in the morning.
Mint, Thanks for the heads up - I've been keeping track of my HR for years (call me obsessive ;) ) I'll look for changes with a view to symptoms from now on.
