Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is a heart irregularity in which the heart’s upper chambers beat violently rather than smoothly. This may lead to the formation of blood clots, which can cause heart complications. Let’s look at different methods of atrial fibrillation prevention.

What is The Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation?

While atrial fibrillation (AFib) can pose significant health risks, active lifestyle choices and informed health decisions play a key role in prevention. Protect your heart with these AFib prevention tips:

  • Maintain healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels for a healthy heart.
  • Avoid smoking
  • Choose a low-salt, low-fat diet with plenty of good ingredients.
  • Aim for 30 minutes of activity most days.
  • Maintain a good sleep schedule of 7-9 hours
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
