What causes an increase in the heart after having breakfast?

hi, what is the normal resting pulse, I am a female, 20 years old, and had a heart test, i was told my left atrium is a little bit large, i m not taking any medication for it, my heart rate rises after eating my breakfast, it s a horrible feeling, i feel energyless and can t do anything, i m wondering can it be an early sign of diabetes? I m medium weight and have ovarian poly cystic syndrome, and fatty liver as a result of that.

Hello,

For this reason, I would recommend checking sex hormone levels and thyroid hormone plasma levels for possible adrenal gland dysfunction.

HbA1C test would help exclude diabetes. An ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring would help examine your heart rhythm trends during the day and exclude possible cardiac arrhythmia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
