Women, Mother Nature and Gender Bias

by Patti J. Ryan, August 2015

Several studies have established that the symptoms and consequences of A-Fib are more profoundly felt in women.

Mother Nature and A-Fib Symptoms in Women

Females tend to develop A-Fib at a later age than men. They are also more likely to seek medical attention, are usually more symptomatic, and have higher heart rates. A-Fib tends to affect their physical quality of life more severely.

While men as a group develop A-Fib twice as often as women, there are twice as many females as males in the age group with the highest percentage of A-Fib.

Cardiovascular mortality rates are 2.5-fold greater for women with A-Fib. Women have a 4.6-fold higher rate of stroke. A-Fib is the most frequent cause of disabling stroke in elderly females.

Remember: you don’t have to live with A-Fib! Seek your cure.

What can you do about it? As a female with A-Fib, you may have more symptoms, quality of life issues and are at greater risk of an A-Fib-related stroke. But you don’t have to live with A-Fib. As soon as practical, get a referral to a heart rhythm specialist (a cardiologist with a specialty in electrophysiology). Early diagnosis means less damage to your heart and more treatment options.
