yes..........

I have noticed higher incidents of irregular beats and/or PVCs and PACs from blood sugar spikes after meals..

...as a result I eat a low glycemic diet that raises the blood sugar more slowly.........its good for you anyway and keep energy level more consistent.

Lots of simple sugars in snacks and junk food is a no no for heart beat.......

......and also things like fruit juices are worse that sugared soft drinks......

refined flour and gains are bad......look for whole gain products in paste/breads and rice...

Eat whole foods and avoid processed junk......

Does that help some?

Oh yes.  If I am hypoglycemic (I have reactive hypoglycemia) I get a flurry of palpitations.  Likewise, if I've eaten a lot of sweets and I'm overloaded on refined sugar, I get them from the highs too.

Is there some medically official list of foods to avoid?  I certainly think my eating triggers some of my PVCs, but I love Cadbury chocolate, and cappuccino, and rustic Italian bread, French cheese, and many other things like that. If I give all that up what is left to eat?

I definitely have an increase is PVCs, PAF and rapid heart beat when I am hypoglycemic.  I am Type II diabetic and have decent control through medications (metformin and glyburide).  However, if I don't eat regularly I can get hypoglycemic and the missed beats, afib and tachycardia can start.  I get the weak, tired, sweaty, shaky hands, chest discomfort, dizzy, panicky feeling....but...as soon as I get some glucose into me via a glucose tablet or a sugary soda...I feel ok after a few minutes.  I still might feel a bit fatigued and run down but the heart issues seem to subside.  This happens for me at a relatively high blood sugar level of 80 or below.
