AFib Risk Factors

A person can help reduce their chances of developing AFib. For example, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in a heart healthy lifestyle all decrease the onset of Afib. Connecting with an electrophysiologist who works together with patients to choose the best treatment options, based on the patient’s values and preferences is the optimum therapy for AFib.
