Explained:  Can Atrial Fibrillation Be Cured?

There is no definite AFib cure. However, the heart rhythm disorder can be controlled effectively with medicine, ablation, blood thinners or actively lowering risk factors.

Treatment for AFib may involve medications, lifestyle changes, or procedures such as ablation or pacemaker insertion.

Medications used to treat AFib include blood thinners to reduce the risk of stroke, beta blockers or calcium channel blockers to control heart rate, and antiarrhythmics to stabilise the heart's rhythm.

Monitor your heart rate, breathing rate, strain, heart rhythms, HRV, continuous ECG and a lot more using Frontier X2.

Lifestyle changes that may help manage AFib include quitting smoking, managing stress, getting regular exercise, and eating a healthy diet.

Procedures such as ablation or pacemaker insertion can be used to treat AFib when medications and lifestyle changes are not effective.

Ablation involves destroying or removing the abnormal tissue in the heart that is causing the irregular rhythm, while a pacemaker is a device that helps regulate the heart's rhythm.

We recommend that you work with your healthcare provider to determine the best treatment plan for AFib. While AFib cannot always be cured, it can often be well-managed with proper treatment.
