I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a connection between a high ferritin level and atrial fibrillation?
I am due to see a cardiologist in a couple of weeks so will ask her. I am having an echo. Hard telling what she will say.
Thought maybe someone here might be able to give me an answer.
Thanks everyone.

It can cause rapid heartbeat, but that's about the extent of my knowledge on the matter.  How high is your ferritin?

Asking the cardiologist is a good idea. Asking the doctor that ran the ferritin test what you should do about that finding would also be a good idea.  That doctor may want to do other tests, I think (if I remember correctly) there are a few tests that have to do with ferritin and your doctor may want to run those if he/she hasn't already.

Thanks for your comments. I do appreciate them.
I do have the cardio book and the encyclopedia but I haven't seen anything that related to both the a fib and ferritin. I have also checked the archives.
My doctor is going to consult with a hemotologist about the ferritin level. It is 625 normal is 6 - 250. All of my other iron levels are normal. I think I will have them run the ferritin again to make sure it is right.
I don't always have atrial fib, just occasionally. I have had it twice in a short period of time once 12/26/10 and 2/12/11. I am on atenolol for it and magnesium. I have always gone to the ER and they convert it back with medication. Have had it maybe 6 or 7 times since 1996.
Thanks everyone for your help.

Has anyone mentioned Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome?  When you go to the ER, do they give you an injection to bring your heart rate down?

One thing, though, I think WPW is discovered much earlier in life.  My husband was diagnosed in the eighth grade.

Would not surprise me that there is a a link, ferritin is also related to the thyroid, the pathways are complex and they overlap.

Did you have your thyroid checked as well? I would scrutinize your diet as well as any supplements that you take.
Most things come from the gut so think about what you do on a daily basis for your gut.
