I am 13 with heart beat 110. Is my heart-rate too fast?

I m a 13 year old male with an average heart rate of about 110 per minute, that s without any strenuous activity whatsoever. My P.E/Gym class took tests to find the average heart beat and most of my class got about 60-80, on further note, my dad has a congenital heart defect and so did my grandfather (he died of a heart attack ). I don t know what the defect is but my dad was told by his doctor that he s not allowed to get fat and my grandfather was on a diet just before he died. My mother says I probably have the same thing. What do you think?

Hi balaji,
If you dont have anyother problem during activities, you need not worry, at your age some people will have higher heart rate like yours due to dominant symphethetic tone.
so dont worry.
Take care
