Atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, and hormones

Posted By James M. on April 02, 1999 at 18:32:32:







As a 56-year-old male in fine condition with the exception of my arrhythmias, I often wonder what causes the episodes of atrial flutter and fibrillation to become more frequent and longer across the 30 years or so I have been aware of them.  It occurred to my menopausing wife that my increasing symptoms may be a reflection of hormonal changes over the years.  She goes on to suggest that I might look for hormonal therapies.  Is this worth pursuing?
