Now if you’re simply using Lanoxin to treat an arrhythmia…
You may have additional options not available to those who have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The problem is that there are a lot of different types of arrhythmia’s and each will have their own effect on the outcome of your life insurance application.
This is why you’ll likely be asked a wide range of questions regarding the type of arrhythmia that you have in addition to the severity of the arrhythmia.
Common questions asked of someone who has been diagnosed with an arrhythmia would include:
- What type of arrhythmia do you have? Is it a symptom of another disease?
- How long have you had irregular heartbeats?
- How often do you experience irregular heartbeats?
- When you experience irregular heartbeats, how long does it last?
- Does your arrhythmia keep you up at night or cause you to miss work?
- Have you had any complications due to arrhythmia?
- Have you ever been hospitalized or visited an emergency room for arrhythmia?
- Have you ever worn a heart monitor to assess your heartbeats? If yes, what was the outcome?
- Do you visit a cardiologist regularly? If yes, what has your cardiologist said about your arrhythmia?
- Are you currently taking medication? If yes, what medication do you take?
- Do you engage in any risky behavior that could further aggravate your arrhythmia such as smoking, drinking excessive caffeine, or alcohol?
