Even after changing my diet and taking beta blockers, at times my heart rate raises when I eat, so I never use table salt and try to determine exactly what foods
cause this. What I'v found is that the salty foods
cause this more so than the bland foods
, and especially restaurant food (for me), but after years of having IST, I think that some of us just have faster heart rates. I don't know how true that is but I was told there is not much I can do about my heart rate.
