BACKGROUND Exercise training is an effective treatment for important atrial fibrillation (AF) comorbidities. However, a high level of endurance exercise is associated with an increased AF prevalence. We assessed the effects of aerobic interval training (AIT) on time in AF, AF symptoms, cardiovascular health, and quality of life in AF patients. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes aggravates the postprandial metabolic effects of food, which increase cardiovascular risk. We investigated the acute effects of fast food on postprandial left ventricular (LV) function and the potential effects of pre-exercise in type 2 diabetes individuals. METHODS We used a cross-over study including 10 type 2 diabetes(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) increases the risk of heart failure after myocardial infarction (MI), and aggravates ventricular arrhythmias in heart failure patients. Although exercise training improves cardiac function in heart failure, it is still unclear how it benefits the diabetic heart after MI. To study the effects of aerobic interval training on cardiac(More)
BACKGROUND Self-reported atrial fibrillation (AF) and diagnoses from hospital registers are often used to identify persons with AF. The objective of this study was to validate self-reported AF and hospital discharge diagnoses of AF among participants in a population-based study. MATERIALS AND METHODS Among 50,805 persons who participated in the third(More)
BACKGROUND Compelling evidence suggests that excessive alcohol consumption increases the risk of atrial fibrillation (AF), but the effect of light-moderate alcohol consumption is less certain. We investigated the association between alcohol consumption within recommended limits and AF risk in a light-drinking population. METHODS AND RESULTS Among 47 002(More)
