Resting heart rate
on 8/24/18 8:35 am
Is it normal for heart rate to drop with weight loss? I know blood pressure naturally goes down, but what about heart rate. My resting heart rate has always been 60bpm, but the last couple weeks it's dropped to 47-50. I've lost 59 pounds since optifast beginning March.

It's best to call your Centre as ask the nurse. Although it is not dangerously low you should call and check. Are you drinking enough water?

Referral to Guelph Feb/13, Sleep study and all bloodwork and ultrasound May/13, orientation July/13. Nurse, NUT,SW Sept/13, 2nd NUT, nurse and SW, 3rd round and cleared for surgery Dec/13. Pre-op Apr 7/14, Surgeon May 2/14, Opti Jul 3/14, surgery Jul 17/14.
Mine did initially. After a few years it got more "normal". But even now, HBR at 55-60 is kind of normal for me.
When I get really high HBR - it is now often a side effect to my food allergies or intolerances. When my HBR gets into 70's - that to me indicates very high stress.

Always check with your team. But I do know my RHR has dropped quite a bit since surgery.

Mine dropped to around 62 per minute. I've been watching it fall with my fitbit info. It's been very interesting.
