Did you know that September was HealthyAging month AND Afib Month… Who knew and should we care?
To start out, to age in a healthy manner – you must be AWARE of your health. According to the Heart Rhythm Society, more than 2.5 million American adults and 4.5 million adults in the European Union are impacted by Atrial Fibrillation and that A Fib is responsible for 1/3 of the hospitalizations for disturbances in cardiac rhythm.
Knowing potential triggers (see below) is important and part of knowing how to live healthy. Again, my husband is a good example and had many of the triggers that were cited in the article, What are the Triggers for Atrial Fibrillation (link below).
Do you know your triggers and do you know the signs and symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation?
- Fatigue and illness
- Emotional triggers
Here is the link to the article titled “What are the Triggers for Atrial Fibrillation”
More to come on AFib, but always, if you have questions, feel fatigued, rapid heart beat, etc – please contact your physician. AFib can lead to stroke – so pay attention to YOUR Health.
Hope you had a wonderful HealthyAging September!!!
