Readers’ Responses

‘Do you have a relative who also has A-Fib? If so, who?

Is your A-Fib genetic? In the October 2014 issue of Steve’s A-Fib Alerts, we posed the question, Do you have a relative who also has A-Fib? If so, who?  Here are the answers we received:

•  My mother had a-fib, unbeknownst to her, until she had a stroke. She was 76 at the time of the stroke. My paternal uncle developed it in his early 80s. Neither of my siblings has it (ages 51 and 64). I developed it in my late 40s. I’ve been a-fib-free for 3.5 yrs after ablation #3
•  two of two siblings-male- and our father and his father.
•  Sister
•  First cousin
•  Myself
•  Yes my mother had A fib. She was diagnosed at age 80. She took Verapamil. No blood thinners until her stroke at 89. She passed at 91 due to pneumonia.
•  Yes, brother (but he had quad bypass surgery in 1996 which tends to lead to afib in some patients as I think it did in my dad, but no one ever confirmed)
•  Brother
•  No.
•  Mother, Sister
•  No
•  No, just me!

Thanks to all who responded and shared their A-Fib experiences with us.
