Here's a link to that study for what it's worth
Thank you for sharing.. I read the study and its very interesting.
I have been suffering with arrythmia's for a long time now and like you my PVCS and PACS seem to be getting worse... I am certainly going to give this a try. Can you please share with me the brand of powder you purchased? And the brand of the other supplement? You can send it to me in a message if you rather not post it on here..
Thanks again for sharing and I hope this proves a long term solution for all who try. My cardio provided me with a prescription for Flecainide years ago. I filled it and it sat in my medicine cabinet for years as I was to afraid to take it.. I figured I had it in the event I ever got desperate enough and I did come close a few times but the fear of what I knew about the risks with that medication was more then my fear of the PVCS.
I had an EP study years ago for SVT and NSVT but my dr wasn't able to provoke either long enough for mapping and so I didn't get to have ablation... I had all the other tests you mention several times over and I did have a normal cardiac cath when I was just 28 years old. I have a history of sudden death on my fathers side and so my cardiologist has always been pretty aggressive with testing.
In the last 2 years I have been suffering dizzy/lightheaded spells and sometimes I wake up gasping and choking in the middle if the night. I had a loop recorder implanted 2nd week of September and I had some genetic testing done around the same time. I just got my results from genetic testing on November 13th and there was a mutation found on my arrythmia panel in the gene responsible for the genetic form of Wolf Parkinson's White syndrome. The genetic dr has referred me to a colleague of hers that is a cardiologist at the University of Miami that she wants me to see. She wants me to have a cardiac MRI due to some mild changes on the echo I had earlier this year. The cardiac MRI is the only test I have never had done.
I ended up getting some Taurine/Arginine supplements because, hey, why not? I was taking 2g of each per day (split between morning and night). Maybe coincidence but after a week or so the PVCs started tapering off and then now seem to be gone. There's a lot of variables in the human body so who knows if the supplements were the reason - and just like you said, they may come back in full force tomorrow. In the meantime, just another interesting data point I suppose. I'll update again after more time has past. They've been gone now for a week or so after having been persistent this time for around 9 months varying from 1k-10k+ per day. This has been a nice change. :-) I didn't even have them after NYE...
