Americans with Irregular Heartbeats to Double
According to a new study, the number of Americans who experience a dangerous irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation will more than double in the next 16 years. This study estimated that atrial fibrillation will continue to affect 12 million people by the year 2030. Irregular heartbeats are most common among older people, but the projected growth in cases would result from aging as well as increases in risk factors for AF, including obesity and diabetes.
To lower the risk of developing AF, especially older adults should “make sure they get good preventive health care, including diagnosis and treatment of hypertension, diabetes or sleep apnoea,” Dr Jonathan Piccini said. “Maintaining a healthy body weight and active lifestyle are also important.”
