A normal heart rate is in the range of 60-100 beats per minute.
A new study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, reveals that heart rate may be an indicator of the risk of developing diabetes type 2.
The study included 98,000 adults. Scientists studied their habits and health of the whole body. When they analyzed the connection between heart rate and risk of diabetes, they found that people who have a faster heart rate, are at increased risk of developing diabetes type 2.
A normal heart rate is in the range of 60-100 beats per minute. Most people in the idle state have heart rate 65-85 beats per minute. People whose heart rate greater than 85 beats per minute, have an increased risk of diabetes.
Scientists still are not sure whether it is diabetes, which increases the number of heart beats per minute or increased heart rate causes an increased risk of diabetes, but they are confident that there is a connection.
All in all, if the number of heart beats per minute higher than 85 during sleep, you may want to consult with a physician since it is possible that you are faced with an increased risk of developing diabetes type 2.
If you are unsure what your heart rate during sleep and if you do not know how to measure, please consult your physician.
Previous studies have shown that a large number of people do not even know that they have a rapid heart rhythm.
