Any suggestions? Eats well and sleeps ok for his age. What can I try to help the situation. Very slow pulse rate 42 - 48 and occasionally in the 60-s or low 70's

Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate your concern and desire to help your husband return to his previous level of energy and activity.

Does he have any medical conditions, such as a cardiac condition or hypothyroidism?

Feeling tired is one symptom of bradycardia, which means that the heart is beating very slowly. A heart rate of less than 60 times a minute indicated bradycardia.

Since this is a relatively new, give your husband's primary care physician a telephone call. You don't want to ignore this, considering your husband's age.
