Adults with diabetes have an increased risk of heart disease, palpitations, and attacks; and a recent Johns Hopkins study found that the increased risk may be six times higher, even if they have low cholesterol and appear healthy.

When I had heart palpitations a few years ago, I determined that increasing my magnesium dosage helped a lot! My primary care physician sent me to the Cardiology Department to be evaluated wearing a Holter heart monitor for 24 hours in order to rule out any more serious heart disease manifestations.

Please consult your doctor if you have heart palpitations.
