The metabolic agent Dibicor is prescribed for the regulation of metabolic processes in damaged cells, tissues and organ systems, and is used in the complex treatment of heart diseases, diabetes mellitus of the first or second degree. Self-administration or independent change of the dosage recommended by the doctor is not allowed, regardless of the absence of serious contraindications and side effects.
Causes of cardiac arrhythmias and its treatment with folk remedies
For many years, unsuccessfully fighting hypertension?
Head of the Institute: “You will be amazed how easy it is to cure hypertension by taking it every day.
Arrhythmia is a heart disease that occurs in patients of different ages. It is acquired and congenital. Most often, patients have atrial fibrillation, but there are other types: extrasystole, bradycardia, tachycardia and blockade of the heart muscle.
Arrhythmia is accompanied by a change in heart rate, which causes a deterioration in well-being and the development of organic lesions. Throughout the day, the person’s pulse changes, accelerating against the background of physical activity and unrest, slowing down during rest. Stressful situations that recur regularly cause disruptions. At the initial stage, until compensatory changes have arisen, it is possible to treat arrhythmias with folk remedies. You need to start traditional therapy only after consulting a doctor. Treatment of arrhythmias at home allows you to eliminate the symptoms of the disease, ease the patient’s health and get rid of the causes of the abnormal heartbeat.
Instructions for use Dibikora
The drug Dibicor belongs to the pharmacological group of drugs with a metabolic effect. Reception of these funds affects the normalization of metabolic processes such as oxygen transport and blood function, correction of energy balance and metabolic disorders of cells of various organs. During the course of treatment, a healthy tissue energy supply is restored.
Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
The main active substance of Dibikor - taurine - is a metabolic product of sulfur-containing amino acids (cysteine, methionine, cysteamine). Taking the drug has a membrane-protective, osmoregulatory effect on damaged cells, affects the cellular phospholipid composition, stabilizes the ion exchange of calcium and potassium in the cell. During clinical studies, the properties of a neurotransmitter inhibitory effect, affecting the release of gamma-aminobutyric acids, prolactin, adrenaline, and other hormones were discovered.
The medicine Dibicor improves metabolic processes in the liver, heart, other organs and tissues. It is a hepatoprotector - in case of chronic insufficiency or other diffuse diseases of the liver, it reduces the severity of cytolysis and increases blood flow. It reduces congestion in the pulmonary and circulatory circulation, so it is used in the treatment of cardiovascular failure. Reduces diastolic intracardiac pressure, improves contractility of the heart muscle. Moderately lowers blood pressure in patients with hypertension.
With diabetes, 10-14 days after the start of administration, the blood sugar level decreases. Reduces hyperlipidemia and hypercholesterolemia. In case of poisoning in connection with an overdose of cardiac glycosides or calcium channel receptor blockers, it reduces the severity of side effects and can be considered an antidote. With prolonged use (from six months or more), an improvement in the microcircular blood flow of the retina is noted.
It is absorbed in the digestive tract.With a single dose of 500 mg of Dibicor, taurine in the blood is detected after 15-30 minutes. The maximum concentration level occurs after 2 hours. The active substance of the drug is metabolized in all cells of the human body, the excretion period is 24 hours (excreted by the kidneys). With prolonged use, it gradually accumulates in tissues and organs in therapeutic doses.
Indications for use of the drug Dibikor
The drug Dibicor is prescribed for diseases and conditions that require the normalization of cellular metabolic processes. Indications for use are:
- functional disorders of the heart - cardiovascular failure of various etiologies,
- complex therapy of diabetes mellitus 1 and 2 degrees, including with moderately elevated cholesterol,
- retinal lesions - cataracts, injuries and degeneration of the cornea of the eye,
- intoxication of the body after poisoning with cardiac glycosides,
- prevention of the development of drug hepatitis with prolonged use of antifungal drugs,
- obesity treatment
- stimulation of the production of adrenaline and other neurotransmitters.
Dosage and administration
Dibicor tablets are taken orally, 20-30 minutes before a meal, drinking plenty of fluids. The dosage regimen, dosage, duration of the course are selected individually by the attending physician, depending on the diagnosis and the degree of development of pathological processes. Application regimens recommended by the official instructions for use:
- Heart failure - 250-500 mg, twice a day, for one month. The daily dosage can increase to 6-8 tablets per day or decrease to 1-2, according to the indications and recommendations of the doctor.
- Type 1 diabetes mellitus - 500 mg twice a day, as an addition to insulin preparations, the course of continuous treatment, as a rule, is from 4 to 6 months.
- Type 2 diabetes mellitus - 500 mg twice a day, in parallel with hypoglycemic drugs or as part of monotherapy, the duration of the course is as prescribed by the doctor.
- Cardiac glycoside intoxication - 750 mg a day before the symptoms disappear.
Treatment of arrhythmias with the help of traditional medicine should be carried out after consultation with a cardiologist. Usually they advise themselves to use non-traditional methods of therapy for the quick recovery of the body, because in combination with medicines, home remedies quickly and successfully help remove all manifestations of the disease.
Dehydration, even slight, can increase blood viscosity and cause arrhythmia. First aid during an attack is to drink a glass of cold water: it helps reduce stress, anxiety and dizziness.
To remove arrhythmias at home, accompanied by a panic attack with heart neurosis, it is useful to wash. The procedure, along with a cold shower, "reboots" the nervous system, balancing its sympathetic and parasympathetic activity.
Due to its rich content of minerals, brown sugar restores the balance of electrolytes (magnesium, potassium, calcium and zinc), the deficiency of which disrupts the heartbeat. An iron-rich composition helps with anemia, which is one of the causes of arrhythmia. Being a complex carbohydrate, the substance is easily absorbed. The required amount is 30-50 g, which can be dissolved in a glass of water.
Magnesium deficiency provokes arrhythmia, since the flow of oxygen to the cells is disrupted. The mineral relaxes the coronary artery, promotes the production of energy from ATP in cardiomyocytes. Taking 150-250 mg three times a day, you can enhance heart function. Berries and hawthorn extract have a complex effect in heart diseases, but work dually. Substances cause relaxation of the coronary arteries and reduce pressure, that is, eliminate symptoms.The biochemical and energy causes that caused the attack remain unresolved, and the body has to compensate for them. Because the fruits are prohibited in bradycardia, arrhythmias, low blood pressure and pregnancy. An accelerated heartbeat, as a symptom of premenopause, is calmed with the help of tincture of hawthorn. You must add 20 drops to a glass of water three times a day. The effectiveness of the drug manifests itself in a week. Tincture can not be used under reduced pressure.
A drink based on two teaspoons of hawthorn, rosehip, motherwort leaves and green tea pour a glass of boiled water, leave for an hour. The tool is used in the daytime instead of the usual tea leaves to regulate the heart rhythm with hypertension and neurosis of the heart.
The collection of valerian root, leaves of a three-leaf watch and peppermint, one tablespoon each, is poured with a glass of boiling water and the hour is infused. After filtering, the drug is taken in a tablespoon 30 minutes before meals three times a day.
3 cups of viburnum fruit are crushed using a blender and poured with two liters of boiling water. The mixture is saturated for six hours, filtered with the addition of 500 ml of honey. The product is stored in the refrigerator and is used in the third part of the glass three times a day in a course for two weeks. This composition is effective for heart problems, as evidenced by patient reviews.
A decoction of birch buds (a tablespoon per glass of boiling water) is taken in half a serving in the morning and evening. You can mix 10 g of lemon balm, St. John's wort, motherwort and birch leaves, pour boiling water and let it brew for about an hour. Drink a quarter cup every day.
When slowing the heartbeat, a tool based on lemon and garlic is used. It is necessary to cut ten fruits, pour boiling water, after 10 minutes, squeeze the juice and mix it with a dozen crushed garlic cloves. A tablespoon of honey is added to the product, and the composition is aged for ten days in the refrigerator, periodically undergoing shaking. Take a solution in the amount of four teaspoons on an empty stomach to increase the tone of the nervous system and blood vessels.
To cure atrial fibrillation, it is necessary to collect from the roots of valerian, lemon balm and yarrow (ingredients are taken in a ratio of 3: 3: 2). Taken herbs are thoroughly mixed, measure 2 tablespoons of the mixture and fill them with a glass of non-hot water. Then the composition must be left for 3 hours for insisting, after which it is boiled and filtered. Take the prepared broth in small portions throughout the day. A significant improvement in health occurs after 2-3 days. For visible results, it is recommended to undergo a 7-day treatment course, each time preparing a new portion of the product.
It can be prescribed together with drugs of other pharmacological groups (hypoglycemic agents, insulin preparations). The effect of taurine on metabolic processes enhances the effectiveness of cardiac glycosides and calcium channel blockers, therefore, with a parallel intake, it is recommended to halve the dosage of these drugs.
Side effects and overdose
Dibicor therapy is well tolerated by patients, without the appearance of side effects. With increased sensitivity or individual intolerance to the main or auxiliary components, allergic reactions in the form of skin rashes (urticaria) were observed. In such cases, it is possible to cancel therapy or the appointment of an antihistamine. With diabetes mellitus while taking the drug, hypoglycemia may develop, it is necessary to adjust the dosage of insulin preparations.
The drug is not prescribed for individual intolerance to taurine or other components of the drug. Reception is contraindicated by persons under 18 years of age.The use during pregnancy and during breastfeeding is not recommended due to insufficient data on the effects of the main active substance on the fetus and the processes of its formation.
If individual intolerance is detected (for example, in the form of an allergy to the skin), the doctor can replace the drug with one of the structural analogues (Taurine Bufus or Taufon), or with a drug with a similar mechanism of action. These drugs include:
- Flowerpot - a drug to enhance metabolism and improve energy supply of tissues, is prescribed for heart diseases, eye diseases with retinal damage.
- Mexicor is an antihypoxic, neuroprotective, nootropic, anxiolytic and antioxidant agent used in ischemia and in the acute stage of myocardial infarction.
- Metamax is an angioprotector used in the treatment of heart diseases and fundus vessels.
- Neocardyl - antianginal, antiarrhythmic, antioxidant, cardiotonic, antiplatelet, antispasmodic, antihypoxic, neuroprotective, antiatherosclerotic.
- Preductal is a drug with antihypoxic effect that improves energy metabolism.
- Hawthorn tincture is a herbal remedy with cardiotonic antispasmodic effect, used in the treatment of heart disease.

Anna, 32 years old. On the recommendation of a friend, she took Dibicor for weight loss during the diet, drank 2 tablets a day for 2 months in parallel with a carbohydrate-free diet. It became less irritable and nervous, it was possible to lose 7 kg. I did not observe any side effects from taking it, I felt fine throughout this entire time.
Sergey, 42 years old I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Dibicor was prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment. I take a 500 mg tablet twice a day, half an hour before meals. Sugar almost returned to normal in the sixth week of intake. The tool is inexpensive, the doctor says that while maintaining the dynamics in the next course, you can try to reduce the dosage of the insulin preparation.
Marina, 46 years old. My heart failure was diagnosed 3 years ago. Dibikor was recently recommended, the doctor prescribed to take four tablets per day, divided into three doses. Pressure indicators improved, she began to feel calmer, her general tone returned to normal. I am satisfied, I will drink at courses two or three times a year.
Causes of arrhythmias in diabetes
The state of the heart muscle in diabetes is characterized by such changes:
- Due to the increased blood glucose in the muscle layer, proteins of an abnormal structure (glycated) are formed.
- With insulin deficiency, myocardiocytes lack nutrients to generate energy.
- Fats and proteins are used as an energy source. This leads to the accumulation of ketone bodies toxic to cells.
- Progressive atherosclerosis leads to a decrease in blood flow through the coronary arteries.
- With autonomous neuropathy, the innervation of the heart is disturbed.
All this leads to a violation of the conduction and excitability of the myocardium, the development of various types of rhythm disturbances, and a decrease in the strength of contractions. In addition, the pathology of hormonal metabolism causes deviations in the electrolyte composition of the blood, the most dangerous of which are the lack of magnesium and potassium.
Classification of arrhythmias in diabetes
To create an electrical impulse in the myocardium there are special cells of the sinus node. Normally they are a pacemaker. Under the influence of changes in metabolic processes in diabetics, the following types of sinus arrhythmia occur:
- tachycardia - frequent but rhythmic contractions,
- bradycardia - heart rate below 60 beats per minute,
- arrhythmia (irregular rhythm) sinus origin,
- extrasystole (extraordinary reduction).
When the source of the signal generation changes, flickering and fibrillation of the atria or ventricles develop. Slowing the passage of impulses along the myocardium causes a different type of blockade. In diabetes mellitus, combined types of arrhythmias may occur.
Symptoms of heart failure
Some types of rhythm disturbances may not manifest themselves clinically and are detected during ECG diagnosis. Signs of arrhythmia depend on its type, pulse rate, effects on blood circulation inside the heart, blood flow, nutrition of the brain and kidneys. The most characteristic symptoms are:
- interruptions and fading of the heart (with extrasystole or sinus arrhythmia),
- frequent heartbeat with tachycardia,
- fainting, weakness and dizziness are a sign of bradycardia or sinus failure.
The attack (paroxysm) of flicker or tachycardia is felt as a sudden increase in heart rate, which reaches 200 beats per minute. With a constant form of atrial fibrillation, there may be no expressed symptoms.
Why arrhythmia occurs more often with type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes mellitus most often develops against the background of obesity, arterial hypertension and atherosclerotic vascular changes. If there is a high level of glucose in the blood, all these disorders progress.
One of the factors causing serious dystrophic processes in the myocardium is an increased level of insulin. This is a compensatory reaction to the lack of sensitivity of tissues to this hormone.
Insulin leads to increased cholesterol synthesis in the liver, deposition of fat in the subcutaneous tissue, enhances blood coagulation. Therefore, in patients with type 2 diabetes, the walls of blood vessels are destroyed faster, and, as a result, blood circulation in the heart muscle decreases, and the rhythm of its contractions is disturbed.
What is the danger of arrhythmias in diabetes
Severe forms of arrhythmia can lead to a complete stop of contractions, thromboembolic blockage of blood vessels, acute hemodynamic disturbance - pulmonary edema, as well as stroke and heart attack.
Any kind of rhythm disturbance is potentially dangerous in terms of the development of uncoordinated contraction of muscle fibers - ventricular fibrillation. The following signs are growing:
- severe weakness
- impaired consciousness
- involuntary emptying of the bladder and intestines,
- blood pressure drops
- the pulse ceases to be detected,
- cramps begin
- breathing and heartbeats stop
- clinical death occurs.
Therefore, when a diabetic faints, you need to urgently measure your blood sugar.
Diagnosis of irregular heart rhythm
In order to determine rhythm disturbance, an ECG study is performed, and in the case of intermittent or paroxysmal arrhythmias, monitoring throughout the day is indicated. According to the testimony, an electrophysiological study is prescribed through the introduction of electrodes into the heart cavity or esophagus. At the same time, indicators of internal and external electrocardiography are simultaneously recorded.
Exercise tests to detect latent arrhythmia can be of the following varieties:
- bicycle ergometer or treadmill,
- administration of dipyridamole or ATP.
The cardiogram is examined before and after the load. This allows us to judge the reserve capacity of the myocardium and compensation for rhythm disturbances.
Depending on the type of arrhythmia, 4 classes of blockers can be prescribed:
- sodium channels (procainamide, aminalin, lidocaine, etatsizin),
- beta receptors (atenolol, metoprolol),
- potassium channels (Cordaron, Ornid),
- calcium channels (Verapamil, Diltiazem).
Antiarrhythmic drugs are used only when hyperglycemia compensation is achieved. In this case, not only the blood glucose content, but also cholesterol, triglycerides, the ratio of low and high density lipoproteins, glycated hemoglobin and blood pressure are evaluated.
Cardiac Surgical Methods
With insufficient effect of drug treatment, more radical methods can be used in case of severe rhythm disturbances with a potential threat to the life of patients. The following methods apply:
- stimulation by electric pulses through the esophagus,
- implantation of an artificial rhythm source (pacemaker) at a low heart rate,
- cardioverter installation for paroxysmal tachycardia and fibrillation,
- cauterization of areas of the myocardium with an abnormal source of rhythm using radio waves,
- open heart surgery.
Prevention of arrhythmias in diabetes
The most important way to prevent the development of arrhythmias in diabetics is to maintain the recommended level of glycemia close to the physiological norm.
To do this, you must strictly adhere to diet with the exception of easily digestible carbohydrates and fats of animal origin, taking the prescribed drugs, as well as dosed physical activity.
It is necessary to completely abandon smoking, coffee, energy, alcohol, to limit the overload associated with psycho-emotional stress. Arrhythmia treatment should be carried out only by a specialist under the supervision of an ECG and laboratory diagnostics.
The development of arrhythmias in diabetes is a manifestation of diabetic cardiomyopathy, neuropathy and atherosclerotic lesions of coronary vessels. Its course can be from asymptomatic rhythm disturbances to life-threatening conditions. For treatment, blood sugar levels are normalized, antiarrhythmic drugs are used, and surgical treatment is used if ineffective.
For prevention of complications from diabetes, see this video:

Almost no one managed to avoid the development of atherosclerosis in diabetes. These two pathologies have a close relationship, because increased sugar negatively affects the walls of blood vessels, provoking the development of obliterating atherosclerosis of the lower extremities in patients. Treatment takes place with a diet.
For those who suspect they have heart rhythm problems, it’s useful to know the causes and symptoms of atrial fibrillation. Why does it arise and develop in men and women? What are the differences between paroxysmal and idiopathic atrial fibrillation?
Arrhythmia occurs after a stroke in the presence of heart problems, atherosclerotic plaques, and other factors. Atrial fibrillation also appears due to a return to an unhealthy lifestyle.
Electrolyte balance is maintained by the nervous system. If sodium in the blood decreases, more urine is excreted by the kidneys, and with an increase in salts, on the contrary, thirst appears.
When the heart cell is relaxed, there is a lot of sodium and calcium outside, and magnesium and potassium inside. With depolarization, sodium and calcium ions penetrate inward, and potassium and magnesium - outward. It is the intake of calcium to the cell apparatus that causes the contraction of the myocardium. With an increase in calcium concentrations, potassium-sodium pumps are turned on, allowing the ions to return to their original position and lead to cell relaxation — repolarization, which requires magnesium ions.
A healthy level of magnesium is 1.4–2.5 meq / l in the blood, with its growth the refractory period increases, excitability and conductivity decrease. Therefore, magnesium sulfate is used for exacerbation of tachycardia to temporarily relieve the symptom. Elevated concentrations up to 27 meq / l increase the duration of the pulse to the ventricles, lengthen PQ (R), which entails atrioventricular blockade, expansion of the QRS complex, and cardiac arrest. Excess magnesium causes supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Elevated trace elements also indicate dehydration, kidney disease, diabetic acidosis, hypothyroidism, and malignant tumors.
Fatty foods and calcium in the diet interfere with the absorption of magnesium. Most often, the cause of the shortage is prolonged diarrhea, stress, when the substance is spent on the transmission of excitation pulses. Magnesium is found in bananas, legumes, egg yolk, cheeses.
Excess calcium is responsible for atrioventricular blockade, atrial fibrillation, sinus tachycardia with an increase of 65% level. If you inject calcium salts intravenously, myocardial excitability will increase. Sodium is an antagonist, lowers the concentration of calcium ions. The balance is regulated by the parahormone, because an excess of the mineral causes hyperparathyroidism (tumor formation) or an overdose of vitamin D. A lack of calcium reduces the strength of the muscle cells of the heart, is observed in violation of the intestinal absorption capacity, vitamin D deficiency and excess oxalic acid in the diet.
Calcium absorption depends on many factors:
- Excess fat in food leads to the removal of the mineral.
- A large amount of magnesium also interferes with the absorption of calcium.
- Excessive intake of phosphorus is a trend in modern nutrition, leading to calcification of arteries, the formation of kidney stones. Strawberries and walnuts are an example of the optimal combination of two substances.
- Excess oxalic acid in green vegetables results in the formation of insoluble salts, which is harmful to the kidneys.
Because the best sources of calcium are cottage cheese, green onions, parsley, lean meat.
With potassium deficiency, edema, muscle pain, weakness and irritability against the background of arrhythmia develop. With a sharp shortage of ions in the myocardium (for example, with heart failure), conduction is disrupted, ventricular fibrillation develops, followed by death. The body receives potassium from raisins, dried apricots, jacket potatoes.
Potassium deficiency in the diet rarely occurs, but its lack is manifested by a decrease in pressure and weakness. Potassium diet allows you to balance the balance, but for its purpose requires a blood test for minerals.
Atrial fibrillation: causes, forms, prognosis, signs, how to treat
Atrial fibrillation is one of the forms of rhythm disturbances caused by the occurrence of a pathological focus of impulse circulation in the sinus node or in the atrial tissue, characterized by the appearance of an irregular, rapid and chaotic atrial myocardial contraction, and manifested by a sensation of a frequent and irregular heartbeat.
Forms of atrial fibrillation, paroxysmal, persistent
In the general concept of atrial fibrillation, fibrillation (flicker) and atrial flutter are distinguished. In the first type, atrial contractions are “shallow-wave”, with a pulse of about 500 per minute, providing rapid ventricular contraction. With the second type of atrial contraction, about 300-400 per minute, "large-wave", but also causing the ventricles to contract more often. Both in the first and in the second type, ventricular contractions can reach more than 200 per minute, but with atrial flutter, the rhythm can be regular - this is the so-called rhythmic, or the right form of atrial flutter.
Our readers have successfully used ReCardio to treat hypertension. Seeing the popularity of this product, we decided to offer it to your attention.
In addition, atrial fibrillation and flutter can occur simultaneously in one patient for a certain period of time, for example, with paroxysm of flicker - atrial flutter. Often, during atrial flutter, the frequency of ventricular contractions of the ventricles can remain within normal limits, and then a more accurate analysis of the cardiogram is required for a correct diagnosis.
In addition to such a division of atrial fibrillation, according to the principle of the course of this disease, the following forms are distinguished:
- Paroxysmal, characterized by the occurrence of interruptions in the work of the heart and recorded by ECG during the first 24-48 hours (up to seven days), which can be stopped on their own or with the help of medications,
- Persistent, characterized by rhythm disturbances such as atrial fibrillation or flutter for more than seven days, but capable of spontaneous or drug restoration of rhythm,
- Long-term, existing for more than one year, but capable of restoring rhythm through the introduction of drugs or electrocardioversion (restoration of sinus rhythm using a defibrillator),
- Permanent - a form characterized by the lack of the ability to restore sinus rhythm, existing for years.
Depending on the frequency of ventricular contractions, brady, normo, and tachysystolic variants of atrial fibrillation are distinguished. Accordingly, in the first case, the frequency of ventricular contractions is less than 55-60 per minute, in the second - 60-90 per minute and in the third - 90 or more per minute.
According to studies conducted in Russia and abroad, atrial fibrillation occurs in 5% of the population over 60 years old and in 10% of the population over 80 years old. Moreover, women suffer from atrial fibrillation 1.5 times more often than men. The danger of arrhythmia is that in patients with paroxysmal or permanent forms, strokes and other thromboembolic complications occur 5 times more often.
In patients with heart defects, atrial fibrillation occurs in more than 60% of all cases, and in patients with coronary heart disease - in almost 10% of cases.
What happens with atrial fibrillation?
Pathogenetic changes in this rhythm disturbance are due to the following processes. In normal myocardial tissue, an electrical impulse moves unidirectionally - from the sinus node to the side of the atrioventricular junction. If there are any blocks in the path of the impulse (inflammation, necrosis, etc.), the impulse cannot bypass this obstacle and is forced to move in the opposite direction, again causing excitation of the myocardial sections that have just contracted.Thus, a pathological center of constant circulation of impulses is created.
Constant stimulation of certain parts of the atrial tissue leads to the fact that these areas extend excitation to the remaining atrial myocardium, and its fibers are reduced individually, randomly and irregularly, but often.
In the future, impulses are conducted through the atrioventricular connection, but due to its relatively small “throughput” capacity, only part of the impulses reaches the ventricles, which begin to contract at different frequencies and also irregularly.
What causes atrial fibrillation?
In the vast majority of cases, atrial fibrillation occurs as a result of organic damage to the myocardium. The diseases of this type are primarily heart defects. As a result of stenosis or valve insufficiency over time, the patient develops cardiomyopathy - a change in the structure and morphology of the myocardium. Cardiomyopathy leads to the fact that part of the normal muscle fibers in the heart are replaced by hypertrophic (thickened) fibers, which lose the ability to normally conduct impulses. Areas of hypertrophied tissue are pathological foci of pulsation in the atria when it comes to stenosis and / or mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency.
The next disease, which occupies the second place in the incidence of atrial fibrillation, is coronary heart disease, including acute and transferred myocardial infarction. The path of development of arrhythmia is similar to defects, only areas of normal muscle tissue are replaced not with hypertrophic, but with necrotic fibers.
Also a significant cause of arrhythmias is cardiosclerosis - the proliferation of connective (scar) tissue instead of ordinary muscle cells. Cardiosclerosis can form within a few months or years after heart attacks or myocarditis (inflammatory changes in the heart tissue of a viral or bacterial nature). Atrial fibrillation is often found in the acute period of myocardial infarction or in acute myocarditis.
In some patients, atrial fibrillation occurs in the absence of organic damage to the heart due to diseases of the endocrine system. The most common cause in this case is thyroid disease, accompanied by an increased release of its hormones into the blood. This condition is called hyperthyroidism, which occurs with nodular or autoimmune goiter. In addition, the constant stimulating effect of thyroid hormones on the heart leads to the formation of dishormonal cardiomyopathy, which in itself can lead to impaired conduction in the atria.
In addition to the main reasons, risk factors can be identified that increase the likelihood of developing atrial fibrillation in a particular patient. These include age over 50, female gender, obesity, hypertension, endocrine pathology, including diabetes mellitus, a history of heart disease.
The factors that provoke the occurrence of paroxysm of atrial fibrillation in people with a history of arrhythmia are conditions that cause changes in the autonomic regulation of cardiac activity.
For example, with the predominant influence of the vagus nerve (vagal, parasympathetic effects), an arrhythmia attack can begin after a heavy meal, during body turns, at night or during daytime rest, etc. When the sympathetic nerves influence the heart, the occurrence or worsening of the course of arrhythmia arises as a result of stress, fear, strong emotions or physical activity - that is, all those conditions that are accompanied by increased secretion of adrenaline and norepinephrine in the blood.
Symptoms of atrial fibrillation
Symptoms of atrial fibrillation may vary in individual patients.Moreover, clinical manifestations are largely determined by the form and variant of atrial fibrillation.
So, for example, the clinic of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation is bright and characteristic. The patient, against the background of full health or minor precursors (shortness of breath when walking, pain in the heart area), experiences sudden unpleasant symptoms - a sharp feeling of a rapid heartbeat, a feeling of shortness of breath, an attack of suffocation, a feeling of a coma in the chest and throat, inability to inhale or exhale. In this case, according to the description of the patients themselves, the heart trembles like a "hare tail", is ready to jump out of the chest, etc. In addition to this most characteristic symptom, some patients experience vegetative manifestations - excessive sweating, a feeling of internal trembling throughout the body, redness or blanching of the skin of the face, nausea, feeling of lightheadedness. This symptom complex in simple language is called a "breakdown" of the rhythm.
But the terrible signs that should alert relatives and the doctor examining the patient are a sharp jump in blood pressure upwards (more than 150 mm Hg) or, conversely, a significant decrease in pressure (less than 90 mm Hg), since there is a high risk of high pressure stroke, and low blood pressure is a sign of acute heart failure or arrhythmogenic shock.
Clinical manifestations are brighter, the higher the heart rate. Although there are exceptions when the patient tolerates a frequency of 120-150 per minute more than satisfactorily, and, conversely, a patient with a bradysystolic variant experiences heart failure and dizziness more pronounced than with normo- and tachysystole.
With an uncompensated, constant form of atrial fibrillation or flutter, the heart rate is usually 80-120 per minute. Patients get used to such a rhythm, and practically do not feel interruptions in the work of the heart, only with physical exertion. But here, due to the development of chronic heart failure, complaints about shortness of breath during physical exertion come to the fore, and often with minimal domestic activity and at rest.
The algorithm for diagnosing atrial fibrillation consists of the following points:
- Inspection and questioning of the patient. So, even in the process of collecting complaints and an anamnesis, it is possible to establish that the patient has any kind of rhythm disturbance. Counting the pulse per minute and determining its irregularity may prompt the doctor the idea of atrial fibrillation.
- ECG diagnostics is a simple, affordable and informative method for confirming atrial fibrillation. The cardiogram is already performed when the ambulance team is called or during the initial treatment of the patient with interruptions in the clinic.
The criteria for atrial fibrillation are:
- The presence of a non-sinus rhythm (does not appear in the cells of the sinus node), which is manifested by the absence of P waves in front of each ventricular complex,
- The presence of an irregular rhythm, which is manifested by different R-R intervals - a different interval between complexes reflecting ventricular contractions,
- Heart rate can be of various sizes - from 40-50 to 120-150 per minute or more,
- QRS complexes (ventricular complexes) are not changed,
- Flickering waves f or flutter waves F are visible on the isoline.
- After an ECG, indications for hospitalization in a hospital are determined (see below). In the event of hospitalization, further examination is carried out in the cardiology, therapy or arrhythmology department; in case of refusal from hospitalization, the patient is sent for further examination to the clinic at the place of residence.
- Of the additional diagnostic methods, the most frequently prescribed and informative is daily monitoring of ECG and blood pressure. This method allows you to register even short runs of arrhythmia that are not “caught” on a standard cardiogram, and also helps to assess the quality of the treatment.
- Ultrasound of the heart, or echo-CS (echo-cardioscopy).It is the "gold standard" in the imaging diagnosis of heart disease, as it allows to detect
significant violations of myocardial contractility, its structural disorders and to assess the ejection fraction of the left ventricle, which is a decisive criterion for evaluating the effectiveness of therapy for heart failure with a constant form of atrial fibrillation.
- Transesophageal electrophysiological study (PEFI) is a method based on artificial stimulation of the myocardium and on the provocation of flicker, which can immediately be recorded on an ECG. It is carried out with the aim of registering arrhythmia, which clinically disturbs the patient with subjective sensations, but was not registered on the ECG (including using Holter monitoring).
- Chest x-ray is used to examine patients with a paroxysmal form (suspected pulmonary embolism) and a constant form (for assessing venous congestion in the lungs due to chronic heart failure).
- General and biochemical blood tests, a study of the level of thyroid hormones in the blood, ultrasound of the thyroid gland - helps in the differential diagnosis of cardiomyopathies.
In principle, for the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, characteristic complaints (heart failure, chest pain, suffocation), anamnesis (occurred acutely or exist for a long time), and an ECG with signs of atrial fibrillation or flutter are sufficient. However, to find out the cause of such a rhythm disturbance should only be in the process of a thorough examination of the patient.
Treatment tactics for atrial fibrillation
Therapy for paroxysmal and permanent forms of atrial fibrillation is different. The purpose of help in the first form is to provide emergency care and to conduct rhythmic rehabilitation therapy. In the second form, the priority is the appointment of rhythmic therapy with the constant use of medications. The persistent form can be subject to both rhythm-restoring therapy, and, in case of failure to conduct the latter, to the transfer of the persistent form to a permanent one using rhythm-reducing drugs.
Treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation
The relief of flicker or flutter paroxysm is carried out already at the prehospital stage - by ambulance or in the clinic.
Of the main drugs for an arrhythmia attack, the following are used intravenously:
- The polarizing mixture is a solution of potassium chloride 4% + glucose 5% 400 ml + 5U insulin. In patients with diabetes mellitus, instead of glucose-insulin mixture, phys. solution (sodium chloride 0.9%) 200 or 400 ml.
- A solution of panangin or aspartame 10 ml intravenously.
- A solution of procainamide 10% 5 or 10 ml in saline. With a tendency to hypotension (low pressure) should be administered simultaneously with mesatone to prevent drug hypotension, collapse and loss of consciousness.
- Cordarone in a dosage of 5 mg / kg body weight is administered on a 5% glucose solution intravenously slowly or drip. It should be used in isolation from other antiarrhythmic drugs.
- Strofantin 0.025% 1 ml in 10 ml of saline intravenously slowly or in 200 ml of saline intravenously. It can be used only in the absence of glycoside intoxication (chronic overdose of digoxin, corglycon, strophanthin, etc.).
After the administration of drugs, after 20-30 minutes, the patient will have an ECG and, in the absence of a sinus rhythm, he should be taken to the in-patient department of the hospital to resolve the issue of hospitalization. The restoration of the rhythm at the level of the admission department is not carried out, the patient is hospitalized in the department, where treatment started.
Indications for hospitalization:
- The first detected paroxysmal form of arrhythmia,
- Prolonged paroxysm (from three to seven days), since there is a high probability of developing thromboembolic complications,
- Paroxysm which is not stopped at the prehospital stage,
- Paroxysm with developing complications (acute heart failure, pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism, heart attack or stroke),
- Decompensation of heart failure with a constant form of flicker.
Treatment of persistent atrial fibrillation
In the case of a persistent form of flicker, the doctor should strive to restore sinus rhythm with the help of medications and / or cardioversion. This is because with a restored sinus rhythm, the risk of developing thromboembolic complications is much lower than with a constant form, and chronic heart failure also progresses less. In case of successful restoration of the sinus rhythm, the patient should constantly take antiarrhythmic drugs, for example, amiodarone, cordaron or propafenone (propanorm, rhythmorm).
Thus, the tactics with a persistent form are as follows - the patient is observed in a polyclinic with atrial fibrillation lasting more than seven days, for example, after discharge from the hospital with failed paroxysm relief and with the ineffectiveness of the tablets taken by the patient. If the doctor decides to try to restore the sinus rhythm, he again sends the patient to the hospital for planned hospitalization for the purpose of medical restoration of the rhythm or for cardioversion. If the patient has contraindications (heart attacks and strokes, blood clots in the heart cavity according to the results of echocardioscopy, untreated hyperthyroidism, severe chronic heart failure, prescription of arrhythmia for more than two years), the persistent form is transferred to the constant with the use of other groups of drugs.
Treatment of persistent atrial fibrillation
In this form, the patient is prescribed tablet preparations that reduce the heart rate. The main ones are the group of beta-blockers and cardiac glycosides, for example, concor 5 mg x 1 time per day, coronal 5 mg x 1 time per day, egilok 25 mg x 2 times a day, betalok ZOK 25-50 mg x 1 time per day and others. Of cardiac glycosides, Digoxin 0.025 mg is used, 1/2 tablet x 2 times a day - 5 days, a break - 2 days (Sat, Sun).
! Prescribing anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents, for example, cardiomagnyl 100 mg at lunchtime, or clopidogrel 75 mg at lunchtime, or warfarin 2.5-5 mg x 1 time per day (always under the control of INR - parameter of the blood coagulation system, 2.0-2.5 is usually recommended). These drugs prevent increased thrombosis and reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Chronic heart failure should be treated with diuretics (indapamide 1.5 mg in the morning, veroshpiron 25 mg in the morning) and ACE inhibitors (Prestarium 5 mg in the morning, enalapril 5 mg x 2 times a day, lisinopril 5 mg in the morning), which have an organoprotective effect on blood vessels and heart.
When is cardioversion indicated?
Cardioversion is the restoration of the initial heart rate in a patient with atrial fibrillation using medications (see above) or an electric current that passes through the chest and affects the electrical activity of the heart.
Electrical cardioversion is performed on an emergency or scheduled basis using a defibrillator. This type of assistance should be provided only in the intensive care unit using anesthesia.
Indication for emergency cardioversion is paroxysm of atrial fibrillation with a duration of no more than two days with the development of arrhythmogenic shock.
Indication for planned cardioversion - paroxysm with a duration of more than two days, not stopped medically, in the absence of blood clots in the atrial cavity, confirmed by transesophageal ultrasound of the heart. If a blood clot is detected in the heart, the patient takes warfarin on an outpatient basis for a month, during which the blood clot dissolves in most cases, and then, after a second ultrasound of the heart, in the absence of a blood clot, is sent back to the hospital to resolve cardioversion.
Thus, planned cardioversion is carried out mainly with the doctor’s desire to restore sinus rhythm with a persistent form of atrial fibrillation.
Technically, cardioversion is performed by applying defibrillator electrodes to the anterior chest wall after the patient is anesthetized using intravenous drugs. After this, the defibrillator delivers a discharge, which also affects the rhythm of the heart. The success rate is very high and makes up more than 90% of successful restoration of sinus rhythm. However, cardioversion is not suitable for all groups of patients, in many cases (for example, in the elderly), MA will quickly develop again.
Thromboembolic complications after cardioversion account for about 5% among patients who did not take anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents, as well as about 1% among patients receiving such drugs from the onset of arrhythmia.
When surgical treatment is indicated
Surgical treatment for atrial fibrillation can have several goals. So, for example, with heart defects as the main cause of arrhythmia, the surgical correction of the disease as an independent operation in a large percentage of cases prevents further relapses of atrial fibrillation.
In other heart diseases, radiofrequency or laser ablation of the heart is justified in the following cases:
- Inefficiency of antiarrhythmic therapy with frequent paroxysms of atrial fibrillation,
- Permanent form of flicker with rapid progression of heart failure,
- Intolerance to antiarrhythmic drugs.
Radiofrequency ablation consists in the fact that the areas of the atria involved in the pathological circulation of the pulse are exposed to an electrode with a radio sensor at the end. The electrode is inserted into a patient under general anesthesia through the femoral artery under the control of X-ray television. The operation is safe and low-traumatic, takes a short period of time and is not a source of discomfort for the patient. RFA can be performed on quotas from the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation or for the patient’s own money.
Is treatment with folk remedies acceptable?
Some patients may ignore the recommendations of their attending physician and begin to be treated independently, using traditional medicine methods. As an independent therapy, the intake of herbs and decoctions, of course, is not recommended. But as an auxiliary method, in addition to the main drug therapy, the patient can take decoctions from soothing plants, which have a beneficial effect on the nervous and cardiovascular system. For example, decoctions and infusions of valerian, hawthorn, clover, chamomile, mint and lemon balm are often used. In any case, the patient should inform the attending doctor about taking such herbs.
Candidate for a complete cure for type 1 diabetes

Verapamil belongs to the group of drugs - calcium tubule blockers. This group of drugs was developed to reduce smooth and cardiac muscle excitability, and was also useful in hypertension, coronary heart disease, and cardiac arrhythmia.
But recently, it has been discovered that the verapamil calcium channel blocker inhibits (inhibits) the expression of the TXNIP protein (the cause of diabetes mellitus) - the alleged cause of death of pancreatic β-cells and treats type 1 diabetes. Thus, a medicine was found for the first time that potentially claims to cure diabetes completely. Excellent results were obtained in vitro and in mice. In mice, it was possible to prevent the death of β-cells and even reverse the process of their death.
Clinical trials in humans began in early 2015. This is a double-blind study involving 52 people. Results will be released in early 2016.
The investigated dosage of Verapamil for the treatment of diabetes is 120-160 mg 2-3 times a day.
Links to research, articles and discussions:
This news so impressed many patients with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes that they already started taking verapamil, without waiting for the end of clinical trials. And they claim that their level of C-peptide has begun to rise. No one doubts that verapamil treats type 1 diabetes. Experts are concerned with only one question - can verapamil completely defeat type 1 diabetes, or will it need to be taken for life.
More good news. Verapamil inhibits its own metabolism via cytochrome. And therefore, its dose can be reduced over time while maintaining the same effect.
But the question is. How much is verapamil good or bad for the whole body? After all, we are interested in the inhibition of aging processes. To do this, let us consider in the framework of this article the remaining positive and negative effects of the drug and make a final conclusion - is it shown to us or not.
Dramatically increases the chances of curing cancer
Verapamil is a potent inhibitor of P-glycoprotein. What does it mean? P-GP (P-glycoprotein or multidrug resistance protein) is a protein that exists in animals and fungi to protect against harmful substances - including drugs. It is this protein that prevents drugs from showing their full effect. And even more. Some types of cancer tumors increase the level of P-GP protein, thus providing resistance to drug therapy. And if you remove this protection, then you can greatly reduce the dosage of anti-cancer drugs, achieving the same effect. And this is very important - because the smaller the dosage we use, the less harm we will do to our body with this drug.
Verapamil, by inhibiting the activity of the P-GP protein, dramatically increases the degree of delivery of any chemotherapy drugs (and simply drugs for malignant tumors) to the brain. And this greatly increases the chances of survival and complete cure for drug-resistant types of malignant brain tumors. For example, it can be combined with medications to treat glioblastoma (a brain tumor).
In the intestine, P-GP protein is also strongly expressed. This greatly reduces the absorption of many drugs. And verapamil can enhance their bioavailability.
Verapamil powerfully protects the brain from aging
Verapamil protects the brain from nerve cell death:
- inhibiting the inflammation and activity of microglia (cells that destroy nerve cells)
- inhibiting the entry of calcium into neurons
Verapamil in studies has shown more powerful brain protection than curcumin, memantine, and baikalein.
About 1% of people over 60 suffer from Parkinson's disease, which is the second most common chronic progressive neurodegenerative disorder in the elderly after Alzheimer's disease. Verapamil reduces the risk of Parkinson's disease.
Verapamil a powerful autophagy inducer
One of the causes of human aging is the accumulation of intracellular debris. The main means to combat intracellular debris is autophagy. About what autophagy can be found here. In the classic version, autophagy is activated through the suppression of mTOR kinase activity. Periodic fasting, a low-calorie diet, and many medicines do this: metformin, glucosamine, and many others. But the problem of reducing the activity of mTOR kinase is that it interferes with muscle building, and with excessive suppression of mTOR activity, sarcopenia (a decrease in muscle mass) occurs. But verapamil includes autophagy bypassing mTOR.
The negative effects of verapamil
Protein P-GP (which was described earlier in this article) protects hematopoietic stem cells from toxins.And the constant inhibition of P-GP activity by verapamil can lead to damage to the DNA of these stem cells. Maybe - this does not mean that it will lead to damage. But if this is the case, then verapamil may possibly cause accelerated aging of stem cells, which means it can shorten life expectancy with continuous use. This must be verified in experiments. Based on these considerations, we conclude that verapamil should not be used constantly. And it should be applied in courses. For example, during treatment with anti-cancer drugs to dramatically increase their bioavailability. Periodically, courses for the treatment of joints, etc. Periodic application of courses will not cause negative effects, but most likely even prolong life.
And today, for us, verapamil is a valuable drug that treats type 1 diabetes, as well as a powerful tool to dramatically increase the effectiveness of anti-cancer therapy.

Taurine and its main functions
Taurine sulfonic acid is a substance responsible for the course of metabolic reactions, the absorption of calcium, magnesium and other trace elements. It is sometimes called a sulfur-containing amino acid, which has a complex effect:
- restores metabolic processes in tissues,
- normalizes lipid, energy metabolism,
- prevents the development of cataracts, atherosclerosis, convulsive syndrome, diabetes mellitus, hypertension,
- reduces the risk of sudden death on the background of atherosclerotic changes in the walls of blood vessels,
- lowers cholesterol
- helps reduce the dosage of drugs in the treatment of diabetes.
Taurine deficiency becomes especially dangerous in middle and old age, when its natural synthesis decreases, the prerequisites for the development of metabolic syndrome, hormonal changes, diabetes mellitus, obesity, atherosclerosis and hypertension arise. Most Russians suffer from a low content of this sulfonic acid, without even realizing it. According to research, people who regularly eat seafood are less likely to develop atherosclerosis. But, unfortunately, sea fish is mainly available to residents of Primorye; it is rarely present in the daily diet of other Russians.
Causes of heart complications and risk factors
Diabetes has a shorter life span due to a constantly high blood glucose level. This condition is called hyperglycemia, which has a direct effect on the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. The latter narrow or block the lumen of the vessels, which leads to ischemia of the heart muscle.
Most doctors are convinced that an excess of sugar provokes endothelial dysfunction - an area of lipid accumulation. As a result of this, the walls of the vessels become more permeable and plaques form.
Hyperglycemia also contributes to the activation of oxidative stress and the formation of free radicals, which also have a negative effect on endothelium.
After a series of studies, a relationship was established between the likelihood of coronary heart disease in diabetes mellitus and an increase in glycated hemoglobin. Therefore, if HbA1c increases by 1%, then the risk of ischemia increases by 10%.
Diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases will become interrelated concepts if the patient is exposed to adverse factors:
obesity, if one of the relatives of the diabetic had a heart attack, often high blood pressure, smoking, alcohol abuse, the presence of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.
What heart diseases can be a complication of diabetes?
Indicate your sugar or select gender for recommendations
Most often, with hyperglycemia, diabetic cardiomyopathy develops. The disease appears when the myocardium malfunctions in patients with impaired diabetes compensation.
Often the disease is almost asymptomatic. But sometimes the patient is bothered by aching pain and an arrhythmic heartbeat (tachycardia, bradycardia).
At the same time, the main organ ceases to pump blood and functions in an intensive mode, because of which its dimensions increase. Therefore, this condition is called a diabetic heart. Pathology in adulthood can be manifested by wandering pain, swelling, shortness of breath and chest discomfort that occurs after exercise.
Coronary heart disease with diabetes develops 3-5 times more often than in healthy people. It is noteworthy that the risk of coronary heart disease does not depend on the severity of the underlying disease, but on its duration.
Ischemia in diabetics often occurs without pronounced signs, which often leads to the development of painless heart muscle infarction. Moreover, the disease proceeds in waves, when acute attacks are replaced by a chronic course.
The features of coronary heart disease are that after hemorrhage in the myocardium, against the background of chronic hyperglycemia, cardiac syndrome, heart failure, and damage to the coronary arteries begin to develop rapidly. The clinical picture of ischemia in diabetics:
shortness of breath, arrhythmia, shortness of breath, pressing pains in the heart, anxiety associated with fear of death.
The combination of ischemia with diabetes can lead to the development of myocardial infarction. Moreover, this complication has some features, such as a disturbed heartbeat, pulmonary edema, heart pain radiating to the clavicle, neck, jaw or shoulder blade. Sometimes the patient experiences acute compressive pain in the chest, nausea and vomiting.
Unfortunately, many patients have a heart attack because they do not even suspect the presence of diabetes. Meanwhile, exposure to hyperglycemia leads to fatal complications.
In diabetics, the likelihood of developing angina pectoris doubles. Its main manifestations are palpitations, malaise, sweating and shortness of breath.
Angina pectoris, which arose against the background of diabetes, has its own characteristics. So, its development is affected not by the severity of the underlying disease, but by the duration of the heart lesion. In addition, in patients with high sugar, insufficient blood supply to the myocardium develops much faster than in healthy people.
In many diabetics, symptoms of angina pectoris are mild or completely absent. Moreover, they often have malfunctions in the heart rhythm, which often ends in death.
Another consequence of type 2 diabetes is heart failure, which, like other heart complications arising from hyperglycemia, has its own specifics. So, heart failure with high sugar often develops at an early age, especially in men. The characteristic symptoms of the disease include:
swelling and blueness of the extremities, enlarged heart, frequent urination, fatigue, weight gain, due to fluid retention, dizziness, shortness of breath, cough.
Diabetic myocardial dystrophy also leads to a violation of the rhythm of the heartbeat. Pathology occurs due to a malfunction in metabolic processes, provoked by insulin deficiency, which complicates the passage of glucose through myocardial cells. As a result, oxidized fatty acids accumulate in the heart muscle.
The course of myocardial dystrophy leads to the appearance of foci of conduction disturbances, flickering arrhythmias, extrasystoles or parasystoles. Also, microangiopathy in diabetes contributes to the defeat of small vessels that feed the myocardium.
Sinus tachycardia occurs with nervous or physical overstrain. After all, accelerated heart function is necessary to provide the body with nutritional components and oxygen. But if blood sugar rises constantly, then the heart is forced to work in an enhanced mode.
However, in diabetics, the myocardium cannot contract rapidly. As a result, oxygen and nutritional components do not enter the heart, which often leads to heart attack and death.
With diabetic neuropathy, heart rate variability may develop. For this state of character, arrhythmia occurs due to fluctuations in the resistance of the peripheral vascular system, which NS must control.
Another diabetic complication is orthostatic hypotension. They are manifested by a decrease in blood pressure. Signs of hypertension are dizziness, malaise, and fainting. Also, it is characterized by weakness after waking up and a constant headache.
Since with a chronic increase in blood sugar there are a lot of complications, it is important to know how to strengthen the heart in diabetes and what treatment to choose if the disease has already developed.
What is PKI and how to calculate a pension?
With the adoption of the Federal Law “On Insurance Pensions”, a new procedure for receiving money “for old age” has come into our life. Now the number of banknotes you received to reach a certain age will depend not so much on years worked, but on such a thing as pension points. What it is?
All the experience accumulated by a person at the time of the onset of hour X is converted into points. Their combination is called the individual pension coefficient, abbreviated IPK. Thus, the pension is calculated as follows:
- P - pension
- F - a fixed amount annually established by the state,
- N - the funded part of the pension for those who have it,
- B - the number of pension points,
- Sat - the cost of 1 pension point in the current year.
In order to start applying for a pension, an applicant must meet the following conditions:
- reach the retirement age established by the state,
- have seniority greater than or equal to the minimum,
- to get the minimum number of pension points.
If at least one of the conditions is not fulfilled, the citizen has two ways:
- continue to work until all conditions are met,
- apply to the Pension Fund for accruing social pension upon reaching the required age (60/65 years for women / men, respectively).
Pension points are awarded for each year of work. Therefore, the later a person leaves to apply for a pension, the more points he will have. But there is also a minimum limit value. No points - no pensions. Today, the minimum score is 11.4, and in 2025 this value will reach as much as 30.
In the same way, the minimum length of service will be proportionally increased. It is enough for those who retire in 2017 to work for 7 years, in the future this figure will be increased to 15 and in 2025 it will be just that much. It is worth noting that such periods are also included in this period:
- Military service,
- disability periods
- time spent at the labor exchange
The value of the individual pension coefficient (IPC): what is it?
Previously, in order to start receiving a pension, a citizen had only to indicate his seniority and confirm it with documents. But since 2015, future retirees can independently regulate their retirement income. For this, the pension is divided into several parts: funded and insurance. The latter can be fixed and settlement.
In this case, a citizen must meet several important parameters:
- Have an insurance experience of at least 15 years.
- Reach retirement age.
- Provide data that confirms that the pension coefficient was at least 30 points for the entire length of service.
Speaking about the value of the individual pension coefficient (IPC), what it is and “what it is eaten with”, it is worthwhile to understand that this value is calculated in points that are awarded every year, based on the level of salary and income of a pensioner. In turn, according to the scoring system, the work experience and the level of wages are taken into account. Until 2014, this indicator also depended on the amount of contributions to the tax service.
Accordingly, today, if a citizen received a greater income in 2017 than in 2016, then the individual pension coefficient (pension score) will be higher.
It is also worth considering that from 2015 to 2025 a special transitional period is provided. This means that the conditions for calculating pensions will be tightened every year, the value of the calculated points will grow in line with inflation and economic indicators in the country.
In order to better understand the concept of the value of the individual pension coefficient (IPC), what it is and how it is calculated, it is worth considering in more detail several important aspects. This is what we will do.
How is the annual IPC calculated?
Prior to 2015, the government had compiled an individual pension coefficient formula, which is as follows: PC = MF / S, where:
- PC represents the total amount of pension points of a particular citizen.
- MF - this is part of the insurance (taking into account the deduction of the fixed and funded part of the pension).
- C represents the cost of the IPC at the time of calculation.
According to this formula, it is quite easy to independently calculate the amount of accumulated points. Accordingly, in order to find out what pension compensation awaits a citizen, it is not necessary to contact the FIU. The only thing that needs to be clarified is the benefit rate, which can be 6%, 10% or 16%.
In order to independently calculate the HIPC, it is necessary to use the following equation: HIPC = (SM / MV) * 10, where:
- SM will be a payment of contributions at the selected tariff (in percent).
- MV is a fixed level of making payments, which will be 16%.
Thanks to this equation, it is possible to determine exactly how many points a future pensioner could accumulate for all his working activities. If at the same time a citizen refuses the funded component of pension payments, then he will be able to partially increase the annual rate. Accordingly, the amount of the allowance will also be higher.
As mentioned earlier, the higher the pensioner's score, the greater the share of payments. However, it should be borne in mind that there is a maximum IPC (individual pension coefficient), which is 7.38 points. To receive it, during the year a citizen must receive the maximum salary.
To make it easier to deal with all the intricacies of the IPC, consider an example. Suppose a certain citizen decided to independently calculate how many points she could already accumulate for her labor activity and how much she still needed in order to receive monthly payments in the amount of 25,000 rubles.
The fixed part of the insurance pension is usually 4559 rubles.At the same time, a pension equal to 18,300 rubles is accrued to the woman.
Accordingly, the amount of payments for the future pensioner will amount to 13 741 rubles (we take away from the 18 300 fixed insurance part).
To calculate the IPC, divide 13 741 by 74.28 and get about 185 points. This is the desired value. If you make several reverse calculations, it is easy to find out that in order to receive 25,000 rubles a pensioner must accumulate another 90 points per month.
By and large, the cost of this indicator is a specific number, which is determined by the state annually. For example, in 2015, the IPC was equal to 64 rubles, and in February 2016, due to the general increase in inflation, this indicator increased to 74 rubles. This year, the cost of this ratio is 78 rubles with a penny.
If a pensioner earns a larger IPC, then only the maximum possible indicator will be taken into account.
Undoubtedly, it seems to every pensioner that the independent calculation of future payments is a very complicated procedure. In fact, everything is not so scary. The main thing is to learn how to use the necessary formulas and determine the percentage of parts of the pension. If necessary, you can visit the Pension Fund and ask for a preliminary calculation of pension payments.
Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to understand that the situation is constantly changing. Perhaps in a few years, the calculation of pensions and their indexation will be carried out according to other formulas. However, seniority will always be an invariable component of benefits of this type.
Who is prescribed the drug
Diabetics are usually prescribed complex treatment. The drugs are selected in such a way that they provide better efficacy at a minimum dosage. Most hypoglycemic agents have side effects, which increase with increasing dose. Metformin is poorly tolerated by the digestive system, sulfonylurea preparations accelerate the destruction of beta cells, insulin contributes to weight gain.
Dibikor is an absolutely natural, safe and effective remedy that has virtually no contraindications and side effects. It is compatible with all drugs used for diabetes. Reception of Dibikor allows you to reduce the dose of hypoglycemic agents, protect organs from the toxic effects of glucose, and maintain vascular performance.
According to the instructions for use, Dibicor is prescribed for the treatment of the following disorders:
Diabetes and pressure surges will be a thing of the past
Diabetes is the cause of nearly 80% of all strokes and amputations. 7 out of 10 people die due to clogged arteries of the heart or brain. In almost all cases, the reason for this terrible end is the same - high blood sugar.
Sugar can and should be knocked down, otherwise nothing. But this does not cure the disease itself, but only helps to fight the investigation, and not the cause of the disease.
The only medicine that is officially recommended for diabetes and used by endocrinologists in their work is the Ji Dao diabetes patch.
The effectiveness of the drug, calculated according to the standard method (the number of patients who recovered to the total number of patients in the group of 100 people who underwent treatment) was:
- Normalization of sugar - 95%
- Elimination of vein thrombosis - 70%
- Elimination of a strong heartbeat - 90%
- Relieving high blood pressure - 92%
- Vigor during the day, improved sleep at night - 97%
Ji Dao producers are not a commercial organization and are funded by the state. Therefore, now every resident has the opportunity to get the drug at a 50% discount.
- cardiovascular failure
- glycosidic intoxication,
- prevention of liver diseases with prolonged use of drugs, in particular antifungal.
After the discovery of taurine, scientists for a long time could not understand why the body needs it.It turned out that with normal metabolism taurine does not have a protective effect. The therapeutic effect begins to appear only in the presence of pathology, as a rule, in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Dibikor acts in the initial stages of violations, preventing the development of complications.
- In the recommended dosage, the drug reduces sugar. After 3 months of use, glycated hemoglobin decreases by an average of 0.9%. The best results are observed in patients with newly diagnosed diabetes and prediabetes.
- It is used to prevent vascular complications in diabetics. The drug lowers blood cholesterol and triglycerides, improves blood circulation to tissues.
- With heart diseases, Dibicor improves myocardial contractility, blood flow, reduces shortness of breath. The drug increases the effectiveness of treatment with cardiac glycosides and reduces their dose. According to doctors, it improves the general condition of patients, their tolerance to physical exertion.
- Long-term use of Dibicor stimulates microcirculation in the conjunctiva. It is believed that it can be used to prevent diabetic retinopathy.
- Dibicor is able to work as an antidote, eliminates nausea and arrhythmia in case of an overdose of glycosides. Also found a similar effect against beta-blockers and catecholamines.
Release form and dosage
Dibicor is released in the form of flat white tablets. They are 10 pieces each placed in blisters. In the package of 3 or 6 blisters and instructions for use. The drug must be protected from heat and open sunlight. In such conditions, it retains properties for 3 years.
For ease of use, Dibicor has 2 dosages:
- 500 mg is the standard therapeutic dose. 2 tablets of 500 mg are prescribed for diabetes mellitus, to protect the liver while taking dangerous drugs for it. Dibicor 500 tablets are at risk, they can be divided in half,
- 250 mg may be prescribed for heart failure. In this case, the dosage varies widely: from 125 mg (1/2 tablet) to 3 g (12 tablets). The required amount of the drug is selected by the doctor, taking into account other medications taken. If it is necessary to remove glycosidic intoxication, Dibicor per day is prescribed at least 750 mg.
Side effects of the medicine
Dibicor practically has no side effects for the body. Allergic reactions to the auxiliary ingredients of the pill are very rare. Taurine itself is a natural amino acid, so it does not cause allergies.
Long-term use with increased acidity of the stomach can lead to an exacerbation of the ulcer. With such problems, treatment with Dibicor should be agreed with the doctor. Perhaps he will recommend getting taurine from food, not from pills.

I have been studying diabetes for many years. It is scary when so many people die, and even more become disabled due to diabetes.
I hasten to tell the good news - the Endocrinological Research Center of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences has managed to develop a medicine that completely cures diabetes mellitus. At the moment, the effectiveness of this drug is approaching 98%.
Another good news: the Ministry of Health has secured the adoption of a special program that compensates for the high cost of the drug. In Russia, diabetics can get it before February 17 - For only 147 rubles!

For diabetics, taurine deficiency is characteristic, so the first time its intake should exceed needs.
What are the cures for diabetes?
As of mid-2012, there are the following groups of diabetes medications (other than insulin):
- Pills that increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin.
- Drugs that stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin.
- New drugs for diabetes since the mid-2000s. These include drugs that act all differently, and therefore it is difficult to somehow beautifully combine them. These are two groups of drugs with incretin activity, and probably some more will appear over time.
There are also glucobai (acarbose) tablets that block the absorption of glucose in the gastrointestinal tract. They often cause digestive upsets, and most importantly, if you follow a low-carbohydrate diet, then taking them makes no sense at all. If you are not able to adhere to a low-carbohydrate diet, because you break into bouts of gluttony, then use diabetes medications that help control appetite. And glucobaia will not be of much use. Therefore, his discussion at this end.
We remind you once again: pill medicines can only be useful for type 2 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, there are no drugs, only insulin injections. Clarification. Siofor or Glucofage tablets for type 1 diabetes can be tried if the patient is obese, his cell sensitivity to insulin is reduced, and therefore he is forced to inject significant doses of insulin. The appointment of Siofor or Glucofage in this situation should be discussed with your doctor.
What kind of diabetes drugs do not benefit, but harm
There are drugs for diabetes that do not bring benefits to patients, but continuous harm. And now you will find out what these medicines are. Harmful diabetes medications are pills that stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin. Give them up! They cause significant damage to the health of patients with diabetes. Pills that stimulate the production of insulin by the pancreas include drugs from the sulfonylurea derivatives and meglitinides groups. Doctors still like to prescribe them for type 2 diabetes, but this is wrong and harmful to patients. Let's see why.
In type 2 diabetes, patients, as a rule, also produce no less insulin without these pills, and 2-3 times more than healthy people. You can easily confirm this blood test for C-peptide. The problem with patients with diabetes is that they have a reduced sensitivity of cells to the action of insulin. This metabolic disorder is called insulin resistance. In such a situation, taking pills that additionally stimulate the secretion of insulin by the pancreas is the same as whipping a tormented, driven horse, which, with all its strength, drags a heavy cart. An unfortunate horse can die right in the shafts.
The role of the driven horse is your pancreas. It has beta cells that produce insulin. They already work with increased load. Under the action of tablets of sulfonylurea derivatives or meglitinides they “burn out”, that is, they die massively. After this, insulin production does decrease, and treatable type 2 diabetes turns into a much more severe and incurable insulin-dependent type 1 diabetes.
Another big drawback of pancreatic insulin-producing pills is that they cause hypoglycemia. This often happens if the patient took the wrong dose of pills or forgot to eat on time. The methods of treatment of type 2 diabetes that we recommend effectively lower blood sugar, while the risk of hypoglycemia is practically zero.
Large-scale studies have shown that sulfonylurea derivatives increase mortality from all causes among patients who take them, including mortality from heart attacks and cancer. They disrupt the blood circulation in the coronary and other arteries, blocking the ATP-sensitive calcium channels that relax the blood vessels.This effect is not proven only for the latest drugs of the group. But they should not be taken, either, for the reasons we have described above.
If type 2 diabetes is carefully monitored with a low-carbohydrate diet, exercise, and insulin injections if necessary, damaged or weakened beta cells can restore their function. Learn and follow a program to effectively treat type 2 diabetes. This is much better than taking pills - sulfonylurea derivatives or meglitinides, which will kill beta cells and exacerbate the problems of the diabetic. We cannot list all the names of these pills here, because there are so many of them.
The following should be done. Read the instructions for the diabetes pills you have been prescribed. If it turns out that they belong to the class of sulfonylurea derivatives or meglitinides, do not take them. Instead, study and follow a type 2 diabetes program. There are also combination tablets that contain two active ingredients: a sulfonylurea derivative plus metformin. If you have been assigned this option, then switch from it to “pure” metformin (Siofor or Glyukofazh).
The right way to treat type 2 diabetes is to try to improve the sensitivity of cells to insulin. Read our article on insulin resistance. It tells you how to do it. After that, you don’t need to stimulate the production of insulin. If the case of diabetes is not too advanced, then the person’s own insulin will be enough to maintain normal blood sugar.
Do not try to replace insulin injections with pills.
Perform total blood sugar control for at least 3 days, and preferably a whole week. If at least once sugar after a meal turned out to be 9 mmol / L or higher, immediately begin to be treated with insulin, in combination with a low-carbohydrate diet. Because no medicine will help here. First of all, with the help of insulin injections and a proper diet, make sure that your blood sugar drops to the target values. And then you will already think how to use the pills to reduce the dose of insulin or even completely abandon it.
Type 2 diabetics like to indefinitely delay the start of their insulin treatment. Surely for this purpose you went to the page on diabetes drugs, right? For some reason, everyone believes that insulin treatment can be ignored with impunity, and diabetes complications threaten someone else, but not them. And this is a very stupid behavior for diabetics. If such an “optimist” dies of a heart attack, then I will say that he was lucky. Because there are worse options:
- Gangrene and leg amputation,
- Excruciating death from renal failure.
These are complications of diabetes that the worst enemy will not want. Compared to them, quick and easy death from a heart attack is a real success. Moreover, in our country, which does not support its disabled citizens too much.
So, insulin is a wonderful remedy for type 2 diabetes. If you love him dearly, then he saves you from a close acquaintance with the above complications. If it is obvious that insulin cannot be dispensed with, then start injecting it faster, do not waste time. In the event of blindness or after amputation of a limb, a diabetic usually has a few more years of disability. During this time, he manages to think carefully about what an idiot he was when he did not start injecting insulin on time ...
In some cases, making friends with insulin is vital, and faster:
- On a low-carbohydrate diet, your blood sugar after eating continues to jump to 9 mmol / L and above.
- The combination of a low-carbohydrate diet, exercise and the “right” pills does not help lower your sugar after eating below 6.0 mmol / L.
Love insulin with all your heart because it is your great friend, savior and protector against diabetes complications. You need to master the technique of painless injections, diligently inject insulin on a schedule and at the same time carry out activities so that you can reduce its dose. If you diligently carry out a diabetes treatment program (it is especially important to exercise with pleasure), then you can certainly manage with small doses of insulin. With a high probability, you will be able to refuse injections altogether. But this cannot be done at the cost of developing complications of diabetes.
Why does tachycardia or abnormal heartbeat appear
A heartbeat is a feeling of increased or rapid heartbeat. Often happens with tachycardia, that is, an increase in heart rate of over 90 beats per minute. It is a subjective symptom.
People sometimes even feel a normal heartbeat, at the same time, sometimes a serious rhythm disturbance may not be felt. The sensation itself is not an absolute indicator of heart disease.
Increased and increased heart rate is a normal reaction to stress or physical activity. Only if there are other symptoms, the heartbeat can talk about a certain pathology. The symptomatology that accompanies the heartbeat depends on the ailment present.
Tachycardia and palpitations can occur with:
- myocarditis, endocarditis,
- cardiosclerosis, myocardial dystrophy,
- vegetative-vascular dystonia,
- heart defects
- arterial hypertension
- endocrine disorders,
Sometimes the combination of tachycardia and palpitations is combined with anxiety, and additional vegetative manifestations (trembling and tremor) cause a person to fear and conviction that he has an extremely dangerous disease.
In these cases, the participation of psychotherapist therapy is necessary. An objective picture of the cardiovascular system is provided after daily Holter ECG monitoring and discharge tests.
Symptoms of tachycardia with insulin dependence
Cardiac arrhythmia in diabetes can manifest itself in the same way as flickering arrhythmia, namely, tachycardia and a violation of the heart rate. A person with diabetes can have:
If a person with diabetes has discovered these conditions, you need to consult a doctor and undergo an additional examination. Only in this way can you protect yourself from the negative consequences of atrial fibrillation and provide the right treatment.
You should be aware that medication is not always necessary. Diabetics can live with symptoms of MA for many years. Sometimes the work of the cardiovascular system can deteriorate sharply and lead to myocardial infarction or other complications.
Therefore, you need to consult a doctor for any changes in heart rate.
Classification of Arrhythmias
There are cells in the heart that can produce an electrical impulse. Under the influence of this impulse, heart contractions occur. Impulse-producing cells are called a pacemaker.
The pacemaker in the normal state is the sinus node, which is located in the wall of the right atrium. Normal heart rate is also called sinus rhythm. Normally, the resting heart rate is between 60 and 90 beats per minute. The sinus node controls the autonomic nervous system.
If the sinus node does not function correctly, then such varieties of arrhythmia are possible:
- regular frequent sinus rhythm - "sinus tachycardia",
- regular rare sinus rhythm - "sinus bradycardia",
- irregular "sinus arrhythmia".
A rare or frequent sinus rhythm may be a variant of the norm. For example, with emotional or physical stress, the heart contracts more often than at rest.In athletes, due to the training of the cardiovascular system, the normal pulse is quite rare and ranges from 34 to 40 beats per minute.
Drugs that can cause an increase in frequency and its slowdown can affect the heart rhythm.
The pacemaker can also act as cells that are in:
- atrioventricular node
Atrial rhythm is a concept that means that the pacemaker is in the atria, but not in the sinus node.
- ventricular arrhythmia,
- atrioventricular arrhythmia,
- tachycardia - heart rate,
- bradycardia - rare heart contractions,
- atrial arrhythmia,
- extrasystoles - premature contractions,
- delayed contractions.
Arrhythmias can be organic and functional. It should be noted that some types of cardiac arrhythmias are associated with sudden circulatory arrest, arrhythmogenic shock, ischemic stroke, or myocardial infarction.
The composition and form of the drug Dibikor
Dibicor is released in white round tablets.
They are packed in tight packaging and printed aluminum foil.
One pack contains 10 tablets. Packages of 3-6 pieces. Each cardboard box has instructions.
Dibicor includes the active substance taurine, as well as auxiliary components:
- microcrystalline cellulose,
- potato starch,
Taurine is a member of the group of membrane-protective agents that activate metabolic processes. The substance also controls the exchange of potassium and calcium in the cells. It reduces nervous excitability and improves the central nervous system.
The drug not only contributes to the normalization of glucose in the blood, but also has a positive effect on the state of blood vessels. The tool reduces blood stasis and the phenomenon of hypertension. There is also an improvement in the functioning of the heart muscle. Thus, Dibicor is considered the drug of choice in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, as well as with high blood pressure.
With elevated cholesterol, Dibicor helps to optimize its amount in blood plasma. It directly affects the rate of triglycerides. This is extremely important when working with glycemic levels.
The drug Dibikor positively affects peripheral blood flow, improving microcirculation, including fiber. Thus, it is possible to stop the development of complications of diabetes, for example, the formation of diabetic retinopathy.
Due to the improvement in glycemia, the overall tone of the human body is significantly improved and the clinical picture of diabetes is normalized. The drug Dibicor is characterized by rapid absorption in the gastrointestinal tract.
The peak plasma concentration is observed one and a half or two hours after ingestion. After 24 hours, the drug is completely excreted from the body. Long-term normalization of blood sugar levels occurs after several weeks of regular use of the drug.
Instructions for use of the drug
Dibicor for arrhythmias is prescribed orally. In heart failure, the drug is used at 250-500 mg twice a day 15 minutes before a meal. The duration of treatment is 30 days.
If necessary, the dosage can be increased to several grams per day. In some cases, the doctor decides to reduce the amount of the drug to 125 mg at a time.
If intoxication occurs due to the use of cardiac glycosides, then the drug is used in an amount of at least 750 mg per day. In type 1 diabetes, a medication is prescribed 500 mg twice a day along with insulin therapy. Such treatment, on average, lasts up to six months.
With a type of disease of type 2, you need to consume 500 mg twice a day (if it comes to monotherapy). Dibicor can also be used in combination with other oral medications.With this type of disease, including with moderate hypercholesterolemia, Dibicor is prescribed 500 mg twice a day.
The duration of the course can only be determined by the attending physician. As a hepatoprotector, this medication is used at 500 mg per day along with antifungal agents.
If the drug is taken incorrectly and is uncontrollable, then a person may begin an allergic reaction. But this happens in extremely rare cases.
Shelf life and storage features
In accordance with the attached instructions, Dibicor should be stored exclusively in a dry place, protected from light. It is necessary to ensure that the drug is not available to children. The air temperature during storage should not be more than 26 degrees. The shelf life of this drug is three years from the date of release. After this time, the medicine is not to be used and must be disposed of.
Analogues of the drug
Over 60 analogues of Dibicor are available. All analogues can be divided into two groups. In the first one there are preparations with the main substance taurine, in the second group there are medicines with another main substance, but of a similar orientation and the same pharmacological action.
Taurine (Taurine) is a drug manufactured in the United States, the cost of one package of 2000 rubles. There are one hundred capsules in a 500 mg package. The tool is sold through online pharmacies. Recommended by the manufacturer for the treatment of several diseases.
Taurine has a calming effect on the central nervous system. The substance positively affects the condition of the heart, helps get rid of drug addiction and alcoholism. The presence of a healing effect on the genitourinary system has been established.
Evalar Cardio Active Taurin is a drug of the Russian manufacturer. Its cost per package is 260 - 430 rubles. The tool is available in pharmacy chains, it is dispensed without a prescription. It is prescribed for patients with increased intracardiac (diastolic) pressure, as well as to increase myocardial contractility.
Also, the drug is prescribed for patients with high blood pressure. With the help of the drug, the concentration of glucose, triglycerides and cholesterol in the blood is regulated.
Ortho Taurin Ergo is a Russian drug, its cost per package is in the range of 450 - 900 rubles. In addition to taurine, as part of this biologically active additive, there are:
- succinic acid,
- folic acid,
- Vitamin E
- lipoic acid
- B vitamins,
- rosehip extract.
The product is available in capsules. The composition contains special active substances that improve the stamina and protective functions of the body. It is reliably established that the medication reduces irritability and has a beneficial effect on sleep. In addition, blood pressure decreases and heart rate improves.
By orthomolecular complexes are meant biologically active additives, i.e. dietary supplements. The composition of such funds includes:
- amino acids
- polyunsaturated fatty acids,
- extracts of over a hundred medicinal plants,
- additional active elements.
Now a large number of different orthomolecular complexes have been created that positively affect all organs and systems of a person.
In the treatment of pathologies of the cardiovascular system, vitamin and mineral complexes are effective to improve vascular elasticity, lower blood pressure, stimulate brain function and normalize blood circulation.
The analogues of the drug are:
Doctors prescribe medications with meldonium for:
- coronary heart disease with diabetes,
- myocardial dystrophy,
- chronic heart failure,
- circulatory disorders.
These funds demonstrate the effect also during physical exertion, lowering the voltage of the cardiovascular system.
The most popular and well-known analogues are:
- ATF Long
- Tauforin OZ,
- tincture of hawthorn,
- Iwab 5
No negative interactions were observed while taking Dibicorum and other medications. It has been established that the inotropic effect of cardiac glycosides can be enhanced.
The use of Dibicor with diuretics is not recommended.
Are complications of atrial fibrillation possible?
Of the complications, pulmonary thromboembolism (PE), acute heart attack and acute stroke, as well as arrhythmogenic shock and acute heart failure (pulmonary edema) are most common.
The most significant complication is stroke. Ischemic stroke caused by a thrombus shot into the vessels of the brain (for example, when paroxysm stops) occurs in 5% of patients in the first five years after the onset of atrial fibrillation.
Prevention of thromboembolic complications (stroke and pulmonary embolism) is the constant use of anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents. However, here there are some nuances. So, for example, with an increased risk of bleeding, the patient has a chance of hemorrhage in the brain with the development of a hemorrhagic stroke. The risk of developing this condition is more than 1% in patients in the first year from the start of anticoagulant therapy. Prevention of increased bleeding is the regular monitoring of INR (at least once a month) with timely dose adjustment of the anticoagulant.
Video: how a stroke arises due to atrial fibrillation
The prognosis for life with atrial fibrillation is determined primarily by the causes of the disease. For example, in survivors of acute myocardial infarction and with significant cardiosclerosis, a short-term prognosis for life may be favorable, and for health and in the medium term unfavorable, since in a short period of time the patient develops chronic heart failure, worsening the quality of life and shortening its duration.
Nevertheless, with regular intake of medications prescribed by a doctor, the prognosis for life and health will undoubtedly improve. And patients with a constant form of MA registered at a young age, with due compensation, live with it even up to 20-40 years.
Composition and properties of the drug
The drug is available in pharmacies in the form of capsules. One capsule consists of 0.1 grams of chokeberry powder (mountain ash), 0.08 grams of hawthorn extract, 0.04 gr. Vitamin E, 0.02 gr. magnesium oxide and 0.02 gr. potassium citrate.
The drug lowers blood pressure, normalizes blood cholesterol and soothes the central nervous system.
Aronia aronia has many useful properties that are used in the treatment of hypertension, tachycardia, atrial fibrillation and atherosclerosis. It improves blood circulation, relieves inflammation and is used for increased excitability of the nervous system. The capsules contain sorbitol, thanks to which it is recommended to take the capsules for diabetes.
Hawthorn fruit extract improves blood circulation in the heart and blood vessels of the brain, calms the nervous system, lowers blood pressure and sugar level.
Bioadditive dilates the blood vessels of the brain and heart, increases coronary blood flow, reduces blood viscosity, strengthens the walls of blood vessels.
Strengthening the heart contribute to the active substance of the drug "AD Norm"
When should you take the drug?
The additive is recommended for use with:
- various cardiac abnormalities,
- mild forms of tachycardia and arrhythmia as an adjuvant,
- vascular disorders that are associated with a disorder of peripheral vascular innervation (angioneurosis).
The drug "Ad Norma": instructions for use
Take the supplement according to the following instructions:
- depending on the severity of the disease, take 1-2 capsules in the morning and evening during meals or immediately after it,
- drink clean water (preferably boiled),
- continue treatment for at least 2 months. To clarify the duration of the drug, it is necessary to consult a doctor.
Tablets "AD Norm" favorably affect the human body
Varieties of the drug
Manufacturers improved the medicine and released a new version - “Ad Norma Forte”. Extracts of marshmallow dried and meadowsweet were added to the preparation. Also, for a more firming effect, vitamins E and C were added to the medicine.
Enrichment with useful components led to the fact that the course of treatment decreased from two months to 20 days.
Can I take during pregnancy?
Quite often, high blood pressure appears during pregnancy. In the days of the USSR, doctors rarely paid attention to the treatment of hypertension in pregnant women and, with any deviation, were diagnosed with late toxicosis. More than 50 thousand women die every year from complications of hypertension during pregnancy worldwide. Therefore, you need to seriously approach the diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
It is forbidden to take the drug during pregnancy and during lactation.
Are there any analogues of "Hell Norm"?
Analogues include dietary supplements with chokeberry and chokeberry. Among the tablets are:
- Beta-blockers "Nebivolol", "Egilok" under pressure. The drugs are used for arterial hypertension, angina pectoris, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia. With the condition of controlling heart rate.
- ACE inhibitors: Captopril, Lisinopril tablets at renal pressure. Before taking, it is imperative to consult a doctor.
- "Indapamide" pressure pills, diuretics or "Furosemide". Drugs are used to reduce blood pressure in combination with other drugs.
- Well helps with pressure "Spazmalgon". The medicine is intended for the treatment of urinary tract diseases (in the presence of pain syndromes), digestive tract organs, gastric and intestinal colic, gallstone disease.
- "Nimesil" for pressure is not recommended to be taken, as it reduces the effectiveness of drugs that are aimed at normalizing pressure.
"Hell norm" is a good addition in the treatment of hypertension and arrhythmia. It consists of natural and healthy ingredients that will help bring your pressure back to normal. Before taking, be sure to consult your doctor and make sure that you are not allergic to certain components of the drug.
