The Washington Post does a good job of reporting on issues of interest to seniors. One recent article reported that rates of dementia seem to be declining and speculated on the reasons. It’s nice to have some good news!
This article on atrial fibrillation is also interesting. Since I had my episode on July 4, I’ve learned in talking with others that this problem is quite common — and difficult to learn to live with. My only problem with the article is that it makes no mention of helpful medications. Beta blockers and calcium channel blockers can restore and maintain a normal heart rhythm for many sufferers. They are working for me, so far.
