Foods That Affect Heart Rate
Certain types of foods tend to aggravate certain arrhythmias, both bradycardias and tachycardias. As with many other cardiac conditions, arrhythmias are easier to manage if you eat a balanced diet. Two dietary changes you should make after being diagnosed with an arrhythmia are described below:
- You should avoid specific substances that can trigger an episode of the irregular heart rhythm.
- To keep your heart healthy and avoid a general worsening of your condition, you should eat a balanced diet of low-sodium and low-fat foods.
