Food to Avoid for AFib Patients in Medication Treatment?

1.    Alcohol

Once you are diagnosed with atria fibrillation, you should stop drinking alcohol, because a cup of alcoholic drink may trigger an AFib episode.

2.    High fat food

High fat food, like fried food, cheese, butter should be avoided in your daily diet. They will create extra burden for your heart.

3.    Coffee

Caffeine might be a trigger for AFib. You should go easy with it. Do not drink too much coffee. Remember: no more than two cups a day. Besides, many energy drinks contain caffeine, so you’d better stop drinking them.

4.    Salt

A lack of salt will cause trouble, so is the excess of it. In AFib, you can’t take much salt, for it raises your blood pressure. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium a day if you have high blood pressure.
