Take good care of your heart

The heart is one of the most important organs. This is why you need to take good care of it. If you have a heart rhythm abnormality such as atrial fibrillation, you sometimes face difficult treatment choices that can affect your lifestyle. Therefore, it is important that you ask your doctor to inform and discuss with you about atrial fibrillation, the use of blood thinners and the effect of these on your daily life. This allows you to make well-informed decisions. This site describes personal experiences of patients and family members and offers checklists that can help you to prepare for a discussion with your doctor.
