Q: I Am Young and Have a High Activity Level. Could I Still Have AFib?

I think the other side of that question, which is important, is in places where you have a lot of active patients, we see a lot of atrial fibrillation in endurance athletes and in young patients, as well. So we’ll have endurance athletes, cross country runners that are in their 20s, or cyclists and they’ll have atrial fibrillation. Even though sometimes it’s more difficult to fix their atrial fibrillation, they’re generally really great candidates for a cure. So it goes both ways.
