Paul is a regular reader of my blog and recently reached out to me. He wanted to share his afib story with my readers. This is his story written in his own words. I thank him for sharing his experience with us and I congratulate him on having the courage to have an ablation to end his afib. I wish him many years of NSR!
It’s important for people with atrial fibrillation to lose weight if they are overweight or obese so what if I told you there was a way to lose weight easily eating anything you want? It wouldn’t require you to diet at all. Would you be interested? If you’ve been struggling with weight loss you’ll want to read this post! I show you how I lost a combined 66 pounds!
I recently had my annual heart checkup with my local EP. We discussed the results of my echo, various heart medicines to manage afib, when to go to the ER when you have an afib attack, what the “cardioversion window” is all about, and how to prepare for an atrial fibrillation episode. There is a lot of great info in this post. You’ll want to be sure to read it!
I continue to be free of afib but a recent routine annual physical showed that my ALT and AST liver enzymes were elevated. In this post I talk about this saga and what my diagnosis was. I also talk about my struggles with my diet and what I’m doing to improve it.
Did you know that approximately 43% of patients with afib have sleep apnea? In this latest episode of the Afib Podcast, Dr. Steve Ryan and I discuss the strong connection between sleep apnea and afib, and why it’s so important to have a sleep study if you have atrial fibrillation.
