Do you ever wonder if your atrial fibrillation is linked to your parents or even your grandparents? It’s worth thinking about the role of genetics in your afib.

We recently talked about how atrial fibrillation may run in families.

A new study has shown that yet another gene is involved in atrial fibrillation that runs in families.

  1. Lenore,

    Wow, thanks for sharing. I hope you’re able to get your afib symptoms under control quickly.


  2. I just found your web site and read the post about the role of genetics in Atrial Fibrillation. I don’t doubt the link at all. My grandma had it, my mom has it and out of 5 kids we all have it. I’m the youngest and haven’t been officially diagnosed (though I have the symptoms) but my four siblings have.
    Thanks for this web site and for providing so much information.
