Atrial Fibrillation caused by high Uric Acid

A new (2023) study from Sweden reveals that many New-Onset cases of Atrial Fibrillation are associated with high uric acid levels.

Uric acid is a metabolite that is easy and inexpensive to test for in the blood. But it is not commonly run by cardiologists. Therefore, if your AFib is caused by high uric acid, they will miss it.

Make sure you have your doctor test your uric acid level.

Anti-depressants are a Placebo

Anti-depressant medications are taken by 1 in 8 Americans. However, they have never been proven to be effective and the proposed hypothesis for the cause of depression (the Serotonin Hypothesis) that they were created to treat has been disproven.

This suggests that taking SSRI medication does nothing but open you up to risk.
