Is a pulse/resting heart rate of 48 too low?

Yes, 48 is very low. It should be around 60 at least.

No, if you're an athlete this is normal. I am a runner and my heart rate is 45. Other factors can influence this as well..but I would make sure with your doctor that everything is alright with your heart. Hope this helps!

There is the typical confusion in this forum as to what the normal resting heart rate should be. Decades ago it was said to be 60 to 100 beats per minute and many medical sources still suggest this number. Based upon publication of more than 200 studies of 24 hour ambulatory recordings however it was demonstrated that the normal resting heart rate for an adult is actually 50 to 90 beats per minute. Children and adolescents tend to have faster resting heart rates just as those over age 65 tend to have slower resting heart rates. If you are an adult your resting heart rate is normal. If you are a teenager if would be low unless you were physically very fit. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR

No it's not. It depends on your age, gender and level of fitness. For example, if my dad had the same resring pulse as me, he would probably faint!
But check it online for yourself to be sure

No. Athletes typically have a heart rate below 50 bpm.
