what is the risk difference for a person with afib and a person without afib
Afib increases the risk of stroke, Afib raises the chance of shape of blood clot, therefore people with Afib have to take blood thinner every day. The blood thinning can be double edged, it decreases the chance of blood clot, but increases the risk of bleeding. A portion of people cease the blood thinner because of the bleeding(not telling their doctor of course), and then develop into stroke.
