One reader asked what cause AFIB? I really wish I knew the correct answer for that. If you are interested please click on the link above. Some suggested causes are suspected to be genetic. Perhaps, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, and heart or other meds.
Another known risk factor is having too much or too little of some minerals such as calcium, magnesium or potassium in your body.
Now lets see if there is anything in these probable causes that I can be linked to. I don’t have diabetes, My blood sugar has always been at or below the normal range.
I have battled high blood pressure since my first child was born some 50 odd years ago. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancycomplications/preeclampsia.html
I have thyroid disease and I have taken meds for that for over 30 years. As for heart meds, I have taken meds for them for over 50 years.
I have chronic kidney disease. Because of this I have too much calcium in my body.
So I can see how my AFIB might have happened, More tomorrow. beth
