Is My Heart Rate Too High?

By    |   Tuesday, 15 Oct 2013 10:13 AM

Question: My pulse is over 100. What can I do to lower it?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
An isolated heart rate of 100 may be normal. But persistent heart rate elevations can be a sign of infection — particularly if you also have a fever — dehydration, a side effect from medication.
 
Increased pulse can also be caused by diet or physical conditioning, and in cases of heart disease, hormone disorders (such as thyroid conditions), and diabetes.
