      Pulse rate tells you how fast your heart is beating. Sometimes certain medications are responsible for increased pulse rate. Electrolyte imbalance, hyperthyroidism, heart disease all are known to raise pulse rate. Even mental stress can increase heart rate. Increase intake of fruits and vegetables in her diet. Avoid excess of salt. If the pulse rate remains persistently rapid, you have to consult her doctor to rule out other causes.
