Atrial Fibrillation


So I am FINALLY going to be seeing an endocrinologist after about FIVE years. I guess now that I am older people may actually start to take me seriously. Hopefully they will listen to me now that I'm 20 and not 15.

My primary care physician truly believes there is something that is causing my atrial fibrillation. And I believe that as well. I'm just trying to figure out what that is.

I've been tested for low blood sugar before and suprisingly they said I do have hypoglycemia. This is rare for people who don't have diabetes. But then again, I'm 20 and have no known reason why I have atrial fibrillation, so I'm used to rare.

We have always checked my blood sugar since I was first sick in the sixth grade. Oddly enough, one night I was in atrial fibrillation and starving out of my mind, my parents decided to check it. My blood sugar actually dropped after I ate food. Pretty significantly too. All of my symptoms seem to point to an endocrinolgy disorder/dysfunction.

I'm looking forward to this appointment. Unfortunately, it's not until October.

that's great that you've got the appointment. hopefully the time will go fast, it does seem like august has been flying by. it'd be fantastic if they could find out the cause and do something.
