I m a 51 year old white male, muscular and athletic. 5 -11 184 pounds. I eat well and don t drink or smoke. 8-10% bodyfat my blood pressure average today over 5 minutes was 134/72 Pre-hypertension, is that correct? Other than medications what can I change in my diet to lower it? Also is there proof of caffeine increasing my blood pressure? I haven t had any coffee for over 10 hours.
Im 33 years old female.. for past few months been getting skipped heart beat which I went to cardiologist and was told I have PVC s.. did EKG and was told to cut down caffeine intake. I drink a lot of coffee and tea daily.. recently I ve been getting more episodes.. Please help. can caffeine increase risk ?
For breakfast I ate some eggs and toast but not much because my kids kept asking for bites. This was at 10am. I was unable to eat very much lunch because I was so hungry by the time I sat down at 1:30pm to eat I ate too fast. I did drink dr pepper steady all day. At about 6pm after I took the kids to the dentist and went grocery shopping I was bringing the groceries inside and it was about 93 degrees outside. My heart started pumping very hard and fast. I broke into a cold sweat and started feeling dizzy. I hurried inside and shoved three cookies in my mouth then ate a peanut butter sandwich some cheese a yogurt and drank some water. I am feeling ok now just tired and my heart keeps having one big bump every so often. I have had issues with panic attacks in the past but it was hard to tell whether they were from a disorder or from caffeine overdose as I used to drink a bunch of coffee and would have panic attacks. They stopped when the coffee drinking stopped. anyway I am trying to figure out if I need to see a doctor for this. right now or soon. I m just really tired now after this happening. I don t know if it s anxiety. caffeine. or low blood sugar. or something else entirely.
