    tachycardia after high carb meals?


    Anyone have any explanations for this?

    After a high carb meal I had today, I noticed palpitations again and tachycardia. I just recently bought a blood pressure meter and checked my BP/HR. Was around 144/90 101bmp resting hear rate. My normal waking BP recently is 125/80.

    What's up with high carb meals doing this?
    Wasn't even an uber high carb meal, just average high (I'm not carb loading).

    Have you swallow to many CytomelT3 pills,
    or started new regimen on thyroid or adrenal hormones?

    No, it's always been this way for me even before HRT

    A slight rise is normal, but palpatations? You should have that checked out. Sounds like an insulin sensitivity issue.
    How much protein did you eat with that meal? Protein should help keep things in check, if not, get it checked out.
    I hope it works out

    Thanks, makes sense, I just read up on that after you suggested it... could be why I have low cholesterol levels as well... If I am insulin resistant, my liver won't be converting excess sugars to cholesterol. My triglycerides are pretty low, total cholesterol is around low end of range, diet is good, but I haven't cut out simple sugars for the most part when I am not dieting. The protein with that meal wasn't very high. This never happens when I am doing a low carb / high fat diet either.

    On all the physicals + heart checks I've had in the past (with their all of the diodes, etc), my heart has always been fine, no issues.
