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.
