I was diagnosed as having an irregular heartbeat about a year and a half ago.

Hi. I find that interesting about the Kelp. What does your cardiologist think of it? Is it safe to take if you are taking meds for cholestrol, high blood pressure and an irregular heartbeat?


Thanks

Welcome to our little community here, Cjrudi2007!! I'm glad you found us!


I want to thank you for sharing your personal experience with the kelp and zinc. I do have the same questions as Rhonda, however. Are you taking the kelp (and zinc) with a doctor's okay? What little I know about kelp, it isn't recommended for someone with hyperthyroidism or heart problems. It can increase the pulse rate and elevate blood pressure, so please be careful, okay?


I have problems with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and other heart issues. My doctor checks my thyroid during routine blood work and there has never been any reason for concern.


Take good care of yourself and do stop by whenever you can!


With Heart Hugs, Geri
