Type 1 DIABETES

I am knew to community groups, but seeing I have had trouble with AF, it would be good to belong to this.

I was having strong ad episodes from May last year, up to 2 hrs, would feel my back shudder from it. Have type 1 Diabetes and was seeing specialist, He told me what it was, happen while seeing him. Saw heart specialist in a week. They gave me sotilol. Heart went so slow nearly stopped, went grey, with one tablet. So cathoda ablation. 6 months since, still heart rate changing all the time sit down 60 walk about 100

Hi Rex. If you are still experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, we would suggest you visit your GP again to discuss your treatment options. You can read more information on the treatments available at afa.org.uk

Thankyou Rachel, I see my specialist again end of the month. And will have a heart monitor on for 24 hrs. I just hope he does not want to do another ablation, as it was a very slow recovery, ( had urinary track infection as well, so could not control blood sugar levels) and in my case beta blockers not an option. I really appreciate everyone sharing their experiences and supporting one another.

There is a Diabetes forum as well. You might find it helpful to keep an eye on that as well.
