Recently I posted several posts about heart rate and my tachyardia issues.  I believe I have found the culprit.  I used to drink 2, 1 liter Diet pepsi's a day for probaby the last 2-3 years.  In the last couple of weeks I have cut out diet pepsi from my diet, and my heart rate in the evening now stays around 85 in the afternoon, when I wake up it is around 70 bpm.  After researching aspartame, I noticed I had several of the symptoms of Aspartame toxicity.  I feel 100% better now, and my energy levels are higher, and my mind is clearer.  I have also lost 8 pounds, and Im not hungry as much.  I never realized that this crap was that bad for me, as a matter of fact I thought I was doing myself good drinking diet soda over regular soda.  I would highly reccomend quitting anything that contains aspartame, you will notice the change right away.

I just told you what my mothers doctor told her. did not say I read anything anywhere now did I. I dont drink artificial sweetners myself because they make me sick to my stomach and the only prove I can give there is every time I try it I get sick.go figure. Drink all you want friend.

OK so in around about way it had to do with her pacemaker. I talk to my mother and the reason he told her no artificial sweetners was because he said it would interact with her coumadin and other cardiac medications that she is takeing. And no I have nothing in writting just stateing what the doctor said. I tend to listen to my doctor most the time because I am pretty sure he is smarter then I am. If I feel he isnt then I find a new one.

well we all dont have to have something in writing I guess because you know what when a man can save my life then I am going to take in to consideration what he has to say. I have no reason to get on here and lie about what a cardioligist told my mother. what would be the point in doing so. I am not a doctor and have never claimed to be. My doctors word is good enough for me.

I did search aspartame and coumadin and there is several sites where there is supposed doctors that believe they interact. there is a lot of things that interact with coumadin . that is why anybody that is on it has to have there blood tested often. my mom actually has to get hers test once a week at this point. DORway.com has a lot to say about aspartame. I personally dont need anyone to tell me its bad because all I have to do is drink it and my body tells me it is bad.

I dont rely on any sites for my medical information I rely on my doctor. That is why I go to one thank you so dont you get confused on what I say.My doctor has been to school and has been operating on people for 20 years so in my book I do what he tells me. And as far as being here on healing well most of the post is based on are own personal experiences of how things react to us are how we feel personaly not very scientific I am really surprised you are here. I like this site very much and like the input. But I dont start taking anything without asking my doctor first. And the people are great to talk with here.

I've been on coumadin (warfarin) for 15 years. A lot of foods and medications do interact and either cause a higher or lower bleed time depending on the food or medication introduced. Aspartame has never been on the list of items my doctor has warned me about. I guess it doesn't matter since I don't consume Aspartame, but the list I'm provided with by my cardiologist comes directly from the manufacturer of the drug. I would hope that if Aspartame is a proven risk that the drug manufacturer would add it to the list.

Hey,

All I know is after I stopped drinking it I feel 100% better. I no longer have a problem with the rapid heart beat especially after meals anymore. My energy levels are higher, I sleep better, and I am loosing weight. I still drink coffee so I dont think it was the caffeine that was causing it. I am 95% sure that it was the diet pepsi that was causing me to have these issues, maybe it was something else in that crap that was causing it. All I know is I will never drink it again.

Good Evening Everyone

This is Kitt  :)

The questions and comments made by Bill were not intended to start a debate. He was simply sharing that he is 95% sure that it was the diet pepsi that was causing me to have these issues.

I agree that it was probably the caffeine but that is my own opinion and I have no documenttion to back me up at this time.

Selmer said...I'm sorry, I'm sure you mean well, but your example, the source you used, is perhaps among the best examples on the internet of distorted medical information. A simply worthless site filled with a mountain of distorted information.

AS the moderator for this Forum is off for a bit  I would like to remind all to read the rules.

Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member.  Decisions about health and well-being are highly personal, individual choices.  "Flaming" and insults, however, will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree. This applies to both the forums and chat.

Selmer, you are entitled to believe what you choose but not to question another member and ask for documented proof of her comments. You asked her a question.  It was asked and answered.  This topic has run it's course IMHO.

Respectfully

Kitt
