Helping You with Atrial Fibrillation Prevention
Atrial fibrillation is often not preventable. Most of the time, it is due to a concealed heart condition. The risk of atrial fibrillation increases as you age. You can protect your health and prevent atrial fibrillation by:
- Not smoking
- Controlling hypertension and high cholesterol
- Eating a healthy, low-salt diet
- Maintaining a healthy weight
