[ytapvideo id=KiZyYyFrcmI] In patients with low, low-normal, normal and high-normal levels of vitamin D there was no increased risk of atrial fibrillation. However, in those with excess levels of vitamin D there was a significant increased risk of atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation risk was two and a half times greater in patients with excess levels [More]
[ytapvideo id=jFWa_c09y0M] These are more serious than those that originate in the pacemaker. However, there are many exceptions. For people who have a harmless, yet worrisome arrhythmia, reassurance that the arrhythmia is harmless may be treatment enough. Sometimes arrhythmias occur less often or even stop, when doctors change a person’s drugs or adjust the dosages. [More]
Therefore, clinicians may minimize the significance of afib to the patient and may fail to provide the level of support and information needed for self-management of recurrent symptomatic afib.” Afib patients may go untreated. Afib can fly under the radar as some patients don’t have symptoms and some may only have symptoms once in a [More]
