Is My Pulse Too High?

By    |   Tuesday, 04 Mar 2014 01:21 PM

Question: I'm worried that my pulse is too high (over 100). Is it genetic, or is there anything I can do to lower it?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
A heart rate of 100  is actually nothing to worry about and is well within the normal range for most people. Pulse levels higher than that can indicative a variety of health conditions — including the presence of an infection, fever, dehydration, or even a side effect of medication.
 
Persistent elevations in heart rate may also relate to a poor diet or being out of shape physically. They are also a red flag for cardiovascular disease, as well as many disorders involving the hormone system (such as thyroid conditions or diabetes).
