Abstract:

Causes of cardiac arrhythmias are often components of metabolic syndrome and/or electrolyte disturbances. In the latter case, magnesium and potassium are of high importance. In our pilot study we randomized 60 patients with cardiac arrhythmias and cardiovascular comorbidities. The patients of the verum group were a dietary intervention with specific micronutrients over a treatment period of six weeks. We found in the verum group a significant reduction in elevated fasting insulin (p=0.053) as well as in HOMA-IR (p=0.053). In this group also significant improved the echo parameters, like EF in range 54 – 65% (p=0.020), and LVMI (p<0.003) as well as the tendency LVEDD (p=0.050), IVS (p=0.053) and E/A ratio (p=0.051). However, there is no significant group difference in these parameters. These results seem to indicate that the specific micronutrient combination in patients with cardiac arrhythmias reduces insulin resistance and improves left ventricular cardiac function.
