Any stimulants that have previously provoked the atrial flutter should be avoided, and a health care provider should be consulted before any new medications, herbs, or supplements are taken.
Although atrial flutter cannot always be prevented, leading a healthy lifestyle may reduce the chance of experiencing coronary
heart disease that can lead to atrial flutter.
The best way to prevent coronary
heart disease is to practice "heart healthy living" as recommended by the American Heart Association.
- Engage in moderately strenuous physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day.
- Eat nutritious foods that are low in cholesterol and other fats.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
