Has anyone ever noticed a connection to eating sugar and immediately experiencing PVC's? I know caffiene, chocolate and alcohol are all triggers (much to my dismay), but now I'm finding that when I eat any sweets they seem to automatically trigger PVC's! I feel like I've had to give up everything I love to eat to try to keep from getting PVC's! The Doctor never mentioned this, but it's very real for me. I know sugar affects brain chemistry, but I didn't know it would affect the electrical system in my heart!

    • Yes. I noticed this connection years ago in myself. I've been eating a low sugar diet ever since. When I mention this to doctors or cardiologists they always blow it off, but like you said, it is real and I really don't care whether they believe me or not. I can almost completely eliminate my PVCs by avoiding sugar.

    • Sure, sugar can cause pvc's, it's a "stimulant" so it's pretty logical.
