    Default Meta-Analysis Raises Questions - Risk Of Atrial Fibrillation with Omega 3 Supplements

    A meta-analysis and systematic review of 7 RCTs suggests consuming more than 1 gram of marine omega-3 fatty acid supplements per day could increase a patient's risk of atrial fibrillation.

    A systematic review and meta-analysis from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is raising the alarm on the potential increase in risk of atrifibrillation (AF) among patients consuming omega-3 supplements.

    With interest and use of both pharmaceutical- and consumer-grade omega-3 supplements at an all-time high, results of the study, which indicated patients consuming more than 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids per day had a 49% increase in risk of AF, provide valuable insight for clinicians.
    “Our goal was to bring clarity, answers and actionable information to the broader medical field and to patients,” said Christine Albert, MD, MPH, a professor of Cardiology and chair of the Department of Cardiology in the Smidt Heart Institute, in a statement from Cedars-Sinai. “In this instance, the results suggest that there may not be a straightforward answer to, ‘Is fish oil good or bad for atrial fibrillation?’ but instead, the answer may depend on the dose.”
