If You Have High Heart Rate, You Risk Death
Having a high heart rate, even for fit people, can increase your risk of death, according to a new study published in the "Heart" journal. If your pulse is almost-always higher than normal, you have an increased death risk regardless of the fitness level of your body. Your resting heart rate should be as normal as possible in terms of number of beats per minute.
If you're lying or sitting down for ten minutes and your heart rate remains high, consult your doctor immediately and have it checked out. Those who clock in between 60 to a hundred beats every minute are those with normalized heart rates. Your resting heart rate is determined by your autonomic nervous system, level of physical fitness, and circulating hormones.
In turn, physically active people normally have a low resting heart rate. The study suggests that having a high heart rate has an impact on your risk of death, regardless of how cardiorespiratory fit you are. In 16 years, the health of around 3,000 men for the Copenhagen Male Study was monitored closely. From 1970 to 1971, the program designed was to track the cardiovascular health of middle-aged men working at Copenhagen's 14 largest companies. Another checkup was done in 1985 to 1986 to measure blood fats, blood glucose, weight, height, and blood pressure. In 2001, the team checked Danish registers and found out that nearly 4 out of 10 or 39% of the males had died.
