Research about AF in women

Unfortunately the website wont't let me share a link. However there is a report on the BBC website bbc.co.uk about research into women with AF, which concludes that we may be at greater risk than men. I am pretty sure that I have seen similar conclusions before but this is a review carried out at Oxford University and reported in the BMJ.

I have watched this. I just wish they could tell us why we are at more risk than men and if there is anything we can do about it. if not what is the point.

So research needs to be carried as to why - hormonal makeup ?

Who knows but research needs to be carried out

Never mind that - the lesson is that women need to be much more assertive!!!
