Hello, I am a sufferer of bradycardia. I get 25 with a maximum heart rate of 54 times / minute. to maintain fitness, I fitness 1 to 2 times a week, usually interspersed with running in the morning. I want to ask, are there things that should not be done or should be avoided by people with bradycardia both from food, or activities ??
Hello Septiyandi, Thank you for the question.
Adults have a heart rate that normally ranges from 60-100 beats per minute. Bradycardia is a heart condition that is slower than normal. This condition generally does not cause symptoms but if it often occurs and is accompanied by a disturbance of the heart's rhythm, then blood flow can be interrupted and symptoms can appear such as dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, fainting, visual disturbances, fatigue, pale skin, headaches. Bradycardia is a normal condition that occurs in adolescents, athletes or people who regularly exercise or people who are sleeping. Thus, if the bradycardia that you are experiencing is due to the exercise routine that you do then there is nothing you need to worry about. However, you need to be aware of the symptoms mentioned above. If these symptoms occur, it is possible that bradycardia that you experience is caused by certain medical conditions such as disruption of the heart's electrical activity, hypothyroidism, increased blood potassium levels, myocarditis, or side effects of drugs.
If indeed this condition is not based on certain medical conditions, then there are no restrictions on food and activities for you. Even so, please still monitor the appearance of symptoms, yes. If you experience symptoms of dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting, visual disturbances, weakness, please immediately visit the nearest emergency room because these conditions require prompt treatment.
Please continue to adopt a healthy lifestyle by consuming nutritious food regularly, adequate consumption of water, limiting consumption of high-salt foods, exercising regularly, avoiding smoking habits, and losing weight to remain ideal.
Hopefully this information helps you.
