    This thread will be used to organize information about atrial fibrillation.

    Medscape has an unusually insightful article for a mainstream medical publication titled Atrial Fibrillation Care: Put the Catheter (and Rx Pad) Down: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/842739?src=sttwit

    This 2010 study concludes that "Diabetes was associated with higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation, and risk was higher with longer duration of treated diabetes and worse glycemic control." This leads one to wonder if managing metabolic syndrome is not also a way to treat or prevent atrial fibrillation.
